Ikelite Replacement O-Ring Set for ULTRA-Compact Case


About Ikelite Replacement O-Ring Set for ULTRA-Compact Case

You're getting ready to leave on vacation to St. Somewhere you're checking out your camera before tomorrow's flight and you find you have a bad O-ring the worst thing that could happen before leaving on a dive trip, malfunctioning camera equipment. Don't let a simple O-Ring destroy your vacation. While the o-rings should last quite some time it is best to carry a spare in case one becomes damaged or lost.

Underwater photographic equipment cannot be watertight unless the O-rings that seal it are flawless. Always carry spare O-rings in your camera case. O-rings are the most important components of your underwater camera system. If the O-ring is lubricated, it will be elastic enough to shape itself uniformly aroundthe channel. If it is dry, there will be too much friction to allow it to reshape itself uniformly. It will not safeguard against flooding.

Every time you open the camera to change film, examine the O-ring and service ifnecessary. Always clean and lubricate after every diving day. When in doubt about the sealing capability of an O-ring, always discard and replace. Never usea sharp or pointed object to remove an O-ring! Use an O-ring remover tool. Don'tover grease! Too much grease attracts debris that will disrupt the seal and cause flooding. Silicone grease is not a sealant; it only protects the O-ring from abrasion. A perfectly greased O-ring looks moist and shiny.

O-Ring kit includes main O-ring, port O-ring and a small quantity of silicone lubricant. O-ring kit is a must for your Save-A-Dive Kit and is carried by all serious underwater photographers.
