Lens Mod Not Locking into Place

[ New ]

Hi, I recently purchased a GoPro Hero 9 with Max Lens Mod. I cannot get the Max Lens Mod to turn all the way and lock. It sounds like the metal is grinding when it is going on too which I know is not normal for a lens. How can I resolve this issue?

The Max Mod lens and GoPro 9 lens can have some residual metal shavings on the underside, this can result in some metal grinding sounds and it being difficult to put on the first time (after you put it on the first time it gets easier to remove and put on again).

 

Here's a video with my solution:

Also some people have simply blown around the fitting and lens with a short burst of an air duster and then applied a very thin film of grease or oil.

Bonjour,

 

Effectivement il faut forcer et le touirner plusieurs fois vers la gauche et vers la droite 

au bout de 6 ou 7 fois (tentatives) d'un coup le mod vas au bout,

il doit effectivement rester un copeau de métal sortie d'usine...

pour moi le problème est réglé

Cdt,
