Go Pro Hero 9 lens Mod will not screw on completely

[ New ]

Just received the lens mod and I am not able to seat the lens to the camera completley. I have given it some force and it will not complete its turn gets about 75% of the way and stops. Help

Hello, @delamorajc. There is a video demonstration at HERO9 Black - Max Lens Mod that you may refer to. See if it helps.

I used thin film of Vaseline and placed on the inside locking part of GoPro camera. Works for me. I was stuck where u were and worrying about breaking/snapping something off- lol.

I did mention thin film of Vaseline 😬. Glad it worked. Anyway alcohol swab(not much needed) if too much to clean if you remove lens mod.
