hero 5 black housing shoe fits nothing!

I'm new to GoPro. This has me baffled. The shoe that came with the camera housing doesn't fit any of the accessories. I see pictures of other housing shoes and they don't look like the one I've got. Do I have an older model shoe? What's going on?

Re: hero 5 black housing shoe fits nothing!

@greentree44788 - Be sure to lift up the black rubber piece in the middle of the shoe. That's there as a protective piece to keep the legs from pinching in during use, which could result in the camera and show sliding out of the mount base. When you lift that rubber piece up, the legs should be able to flex inward and you can slide the shoe into the mount base. It'll click into place. Then, just put the rubber piece back down to lock it all in.

 

When you're ready to remove the shoe, lift the rubber piece again, pinch in the legs, and slide the mount out.

Thank you Jeff! Duh, I feel like an idiot. But GoPro could provide better instructions to begin with. All is good, for now. Thank you.
