GoPro Super suit backdoors depth ratings

Hello ,
Could any one please confirm that both non-skeleton backdoors (the one to be used with a floaty and the other one) both have a 60m depth rating while fitted to the Super Suit
Thanks

Hello @nicejump50787

 

Yes, both the included non-skeleton backdoors provide protection to depths of 196ft (60m) and also safeguard against flying debris, gravel, dirt and small rocks.

 

Cheers, 

Marius

Re: GoPro Super suit backdoors depth ratings

The key to ensuring the depth rating holds up is to make sure the gasket is clean and pushed completely into the housing before engaging the lock. One hair, particle, or other debris can compromise the seal as well as if the seal is bulging out anywhere along the seam.

Re: GoPro Super suit backdoors depth ratings

Awesome, glad it worked out for you. Over the years I've only had the housings on my GoPro cameras leak a few times. Through those times I learned the importance of keeping them clean and properly closing them.

Just some other pointers. First, soak the housing in fresh water for at least 20 minutes after use in the ocean and then rinse well. You also want to take off the white gasket and gently clean it. Be sure to hang dry (never use a cloth) away from direct sunlight. When putting it back on, take note that there is a flat side and a rounded side to the gasket. The flat side goes on the door and the rounded side faces the housing/camera.

With proper maintenance and good technique when closing, the housing should give you years of protection for your camera.
