The suit of Fasey shows ball-and-socket joints, who are made watertight by U-shaped leather cuffs. These cuffs can also be found for  sealing the pistons of hydraulic pumps. The shoulder joints can only move in one field forward and backwards.

A dress proposed in 1896 by William Robert Fasey bears some resemblance to that of the Carmagnolles and to Careys. It is a plate dress with ball-and-socket joints, these being rendered watertight by leather packing. There are two joints in each leg and arm. It is proposed, for use in comparatively shallow water, to make the forearm and calf portions of the dress of rubber or other flexible material, but in such circumstances it would be better to use a dress of the ordinary pattern. No particulars of the air supply are given.
