PREPARATION OF THE HOUSING
1. Attach Grip Bracket to the housing:
The housing comes with two Grips for both right and left hand grips which should be installed on the sides of the housing with the
supplied screws and Allen key. Occasionally remove the grips and lubricate the screws (see Care and Maintenance: of the housing.)
Depending on which strobe system you are using, you can mount the necessary shoes or brackets onto the 1/4”-20 threaded holes on
the top of the hand grips. The AQUATICA ® line of Technical Lighting Control ® strobe arm is recommended.
There are also three (3) 1/4”-20 threaded holes on the bottom of the housing that can be used for various mounting application trays or
tripod. As well there is another hole on top front half of the housing for mounting accessories such as a video or focusing light.
Mount your strobe and connect the sync cord to the housing’s strobe bulkhead. Be sure to read the section titled “Care and
Maintenance: of the O-rings.”
2. Lubricate the Main O-ring Seal:
Before use, carefully inspect the Main O-ring seal in its groove on the front half of the housing to conrm that it is free from scratches
or foreign material. When needed lubricate the O-ring with a light coat of Aquatica O-ring Lubricant.
When replacing the O-ring place the entire O-ring over the O-ring groove and start by pushing the O-ring in the corners. Work your way
around the O-ring making sure it is snugly sitting in the groove.
For proper handling and maintenance of O-rings be sure to read the section titled “Care and Maintenance: of the O-rings.”
