Re: gopro lens housing coming apart

I saw the youtube video - super helpful and easy! Thanks all! I remember having an issue with the side door on my first camera when I first got it too - it just gets me nervous when I need to move parts around that I don't want to force things.

 

Cheers

Re: gopro lens housing coming apart

I'm glad to hear the video I linked for you helped. Removing and replacing the protective lens can be a little scary until you do it and see how the locking mechanism works.
