I take it back. That was a fix that worked for Jon, the person recommending it.ChrisH said:The instructions on how to fix this permanently (and the guess at the cause of this) is at the sandsmuseum site. Here is a link to the page that describes this problem.
That sounds better than spring steel. Although the whole tab broke off my lens. I'm thinking... instead of attaching the bungee to the tab, I'll glue a strip of heavy nylon tie wrap to the underside of the lens and attach the bungee to the tie wrap. What might be difficult is finding a glue that will bond to the strong tie wrap yet adhere to the cheapo plastic of the lens. Dang I'm dismayed by the need to tape, glue and bungee my Lotus together. But I still love it! Just a small inconvenience.sandsmuseum said:I drilled a hole in the left over part of the tab. I then connected a small bungee cord to the hole and pulled it tight deep inside the clam. Works better.
Heehe! Slapping the clam haaa! It get's funnier the more I think about it. Wasn't there a thread about phrases coined from Elise owners?mikester said:And so a new expression is born !:clap:
