I just got mine in the mail from the UK. Amazing little invention, can't wait to use it tomorrow with my recently completed pipe mask.

takes about a month

Unlike DiveInn, it took about a month for my nose clip to come from the UK. Good luck.

Slipping nose clip

I had opportunity to try a nose clip in a 5m pool this weekend. It was of the 'Paradisia' ratchet variety.

Even though i clipped it tightly i still felt that it was insecure and prone to slipping off ( blowing off ) under hardish equalisations. I found myself holding the nose clip incase it did slip off with a decent blow. This defeated much of the purpose.

Im told i have a normal shaped nose :)

Why and who else and what to do about it ?

I had just ordered one of these things and am a bit dismayed that it seems to be not working for me before i have even got it.

noseclip falling off

Skindiver:

I don't own a noseclip, but I do know how slippery the body oils can be when wet. I would recommend using a towel with rubbing alcohol and clean the skin of the nose thoroughly before going in. You may now have to clean the noseclip with alcohol too. Let me know if that makes all the difference.

nose clip

I found out sunday that the clip is either too tight or too loose. I am going to experiment with different pads to get it just right. Those of you who use the clips all the time, how tight do you ratchet them and do you use them for rec also or only for deep dives?

Got it.

My Paradisia nose clip arrived today. It seems to have 'chamois' pads and the ratchet teeth are very fine. So this seems to grip quite well ( in the dry ) and the fine teeth give many fine settings so 'just too loose' or 'just too tight' should not be a problem. Will try it Sunday and hope it does not slip off.

Who wants to sell me some reasonably priced fluid goggles now ?
