Tank banging or being a tank banger is the process of smacking oneself in the head with a tank banger. For those of you who live under a shell, a tank banger is a hard nylon ball on a loop of surgical tubing that makes a loud noise when pulled and released against a metal dive cylinder. It is designed to get attention under water. See photo at right.
