DIN adapter

The “DIN adapter” in scuba diving is a device that allows a scuba regulator with a yoke (A-clamp) fitting to be attached to a scuba tank with a DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung) valve. This adapter essentially converts the yoke-style connection into a DIN-style connection.

The DIN adapter typically consists of a threaded part that fits into the yoke valve on the regulator and a DIN-style screw that connects to the tank valve. By using a DIN adapter, divers with yoke regulators can still connect to tanks with DIN valves, providing flexibility and compatibility in various diving situations.

In summary, a DIN adapter enables the use of a yoke regulator with a DIN valve tank, allowing divers to adapt their equipment to different types of tank valves commonly encountered in the diving community.
