Preparing your stock lens for use in the Ribcage

Now that you’ve converted your camera using a Ribcage Mod Kit it would be great to take advantage of the great lens you just removed during the conversion. This short video shows one of the methods for removing the lens from its sleeve. Our technicians use vice grips that have thick rubber pads bonded to them. For this video we show a method that uses items most people have easy access to in their homes. Depending on how sharp the teeth are on your vice grips, you may want to use some thick rubber or double up the elastic to prevent scratches on the plastic.
