Integrating your Tank Dolly® into beach and shore diving

Use map software such as Google Earth or Maps for integrating your Tank Dolly® into beach diving:

  • Viewing your dive site in "satellite mode" shows the location of parking, the types of terrain and the distance over the terrain your Tank Dolly® must traverse to reach the point-of-entry

  • The type of terrain dictates the model of tires used on your Tank Dolly® (Sand Tires or All-Terrain Tires)

The Tank Dolly® was designed to be locked if left unattended

Viewing your dive site in "satellite mode" will show if a fixed object is assessable near your point-of-entry to lock your Tank Dolly® to if left unattended

Locking your Tank Dolly®

Locate a fixed object such as a table, bench, fence, handrail, bike rack, or a lifeguard tower

  • Remove the Oval Handle for the Tank Brace

  • Place the Oval Handle in the Weight box

  • Thread a lockable cable through the Oval Handle and the (2) 1 inch (2.5 cm) diameter portholes engineered into the Weight Box

  • Use a combination lock to secure the Tank Dolly®

Lifeguard tower:

  • Ask permission from the lifeguard before locking your Tank Dolly® to the tower

  • Part of your pre-dive planning should be to locate a fixed object to lock your Tank Dolly® to if left unattended
