Where firefighters come to talk training

I was just wondering the opinions on SCBA straps inside the cab. We are looking at purchasing new ones and we would like to go away from straps and pull cords. Any suggestions?? The new inertia locks look cool.

We have a third party brand (Bostrom?) that uses a top flip down "cap" that holds the bottle and the release is a handle built into the front of the seat cushion. When adjusted right they're great, the problem is our 4500 psi Scott 30 min. cylinders are slightly different in OAL causing some to be a little loose.
