About the screws of "HERO 9 Black Replacement Folding Fingers"

About the screws of "HERO 9 Black Replacement Folding Fingers"


Are the "HERO 9 Black Replacement Folding Fingers" screws for the "HERO 8 Black"? Or is it a screw for "MAX"?


The URL below says "Set of screws for HERO9 Black and HERO8 Black" and states that "HERO9 Black" and "HERO8 Black" are common screws.


https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/mounts-accessories/hero9-black-replacement-folding-fingers/AJMFR-002.ht...


However, in the URL below, there is a description of "Longer Set of screws for HERO9 Black, MAX", and it is stated that "HERO9 Black" and "MAX" are common screws.


https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/Replacement-Folding-Fingers/ta-p/711723


Which article is the real information?


In addition, if the user who is using HERO9 Black purchases the old part number "AJMFR-001" currently sold by each agency, the screws in the box are for HERO8 Black / MAX, Which one should I use?


Someone please help me.

Re: About the screws of "HERO 9 Black Replacement Folding Fingers"

I'll be following this because as I first tried to mount the Hero 9 Black, I heard something coming loose and bouncing on the floor (at home). It was one of the little screws from the folding fingers.

 

I can see they used blue loctite on them but they are incredibly short and seeing one coming off right away doesn't make me feel confident.

 

I've ordered a genuine replacement off Amazon for Hero 8 and Max but the page didn't mention longer screws for the Hero Max. Longer screws would make sense, if they fit in.

 

I've got the screws taped for now...

The replacement fingers (and screws) for sale here will work with the HERO8 Black, the HERO9 Black, and the MAX. In the package are screws for the HERO8 Black, and a set of longer screws for the HERO9 Black and the MAX.

Thank you for your reply.


I understand that the article at the URL below is correct.


https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/Replacement-Folding-Fingers/ta-p/711723


I understand that the finger screw of "HERO 9 Black" is the finger screw for "MAX".


If the user uses HERO9 Black and purchases the old model number "AJMFR-001", please use the finger screw for "MAX". "


Therefore, please modify the page at the following URL.

The notation in the image below confuses the user.


Clearly state that the HERO9 black finger screws are the same as the MAX finger screws.


Thank you.
