The Waterproof Round Silicone Wrist Seal Kit is specifically designed for divers who are looking to upgrade their latex seals to silicone ones. The kit contains two Waterproof Silicone Wrist Seals, two PU rings and two Stiff rings. The Round kit is for those who have neoprene drysuits, as the oval variation cannot be used on them. Silicone can't be glued directly on to your suit, so instead a ring system is fitted.
Upgrade your Neoprene Drysuit from Latex to Silicone Wrist Seals
The silicone seals themselves are comprised of high-grade silicone which is extra durable and extra flexible, offering 40% more flexibility than latex seals. Once the system is fitted changing your damaged seals becomes quick and easy as the ring simply needs to be loosened and the new seal exchanged.
If you’re looking to fit new silicone wrist seals to your existing suit then the Waterproof Round Silicone Wrist Seal Kit has everything you need to do so. The kit comes with two Waterproof Silicone Wrist Seals meaning that once it is fitted it is ready to go. The Round kit is suitable for use with neoprene drysuits unlike the Oval Variation.
It is highly recommended that The Waterproof Round Wrist Quick Seal Kit is mounted by a professional workshop. See Wetsuit and Drysuit Repairs.

Friendly advice regarding the usage of Silicone Seals from Waterproof
Waterproof's Silicone Seals are revolutionising drysuit diving. They have superior resistance against heat, ozone, sun,
aging and chemicals, but still require care.
Yes, they stretch more than latex, and it is fun to show friends how amazing they are, BUT all material has a limit
when it can rip or tear — so can your Silicone Seals. Just because you can stretch them does not mean you should. You
only have to stretch it over your head, or hand, no need to include your whole family.
The Silicone Seals do well on abrasion tests but can be damaged when impacted or when the seals come in contact
with sharp edges. Please be careful with nails, rings, earrings and other sharp objects. Also, take care to avoid dropping
lead weights or tanks on them and avoid stepping on the seals.
Issues with ripped seals can appear due to sharp edges on the ring systems. This is mostly related to worn-out rings or
carelessly polished moulds. Please be sure that the ring systems you use to mount the seals have smooth edges, if not,
sand and polish the edges for your own benefit.
Make sure you use sharp scissors. The easiest way to achieve an even trim line is to make long cuts with the scissors.
Rounded waves on the edge are OK, however, the "knicks" or "jagged" edges should be avoided. A cut in the edge will
cause the Silicone Seal to rip easily.
