Put the case on it and then use like a dish towel to help get a better grip and try twisting it on. Using the case helps protect the lens.

Yes! Same problem. I watched an instructional video and I feel like I'm going to break it if I keep trying...

Hi i have watched several videos and I think my lens threading is faulty. This will NOT fit my GoPro. How do I exchange? Thank you!

Try the fix I posted on the previous page. I used a dish towel along with the Lens Mod case to get enough leverage to twist it on. Then I kept twisting it off over and over again until I no longer need the towel. It will loosen up after 5-10 times of doing this. Then blow off any metal shavings that came off. I had a little bit of metal shavings.

You’re right, after 10-20 tries and few metal shavings later it will fit.
For mine, gave up trying awhile and when I got back to try again the magic happened.

Or perhaps I’m just weak. Hahaha. Cheers mates enjoy your max lens.
