    How do you do this? O-rings decided to break......

    How to you reattach the o ring bands to the battery latch on the MoVI?

    Thank you :)

    Erm - without having the MoVI in front of me: I´d assume you just lay the latch onto the o-rings, and move one loop through the other.
    Then you do the same with the battery basket - just that you put the latch through the loop instead. I guess you´ve realized by now that english is not my first language :-D.
    Reminds me that I have to carry some rubber bands in my camera bag - just in case.

    Mine broke also, and I'm embarrassed to admit how long it took me to figure out which way to wrap and stretch the cable and new o-ring. I figured it out eventually, but really have no idea how to describe it. If someone could post a close up picture how it looks when it's secured correctly, that would probably be the most helpful. I'm not near my MoVI at the moment.

    How do you attach the other end to the frame? My bands keep snapping every time I try it.

    Remove the screw from the top of the inboard post and slip them over the post.

    Wolfgang, you did an excellent job of describing it.

    Gary, that is funny. Reminds me of our conversation topic at NAB.

    Having four teenage daughters finally helped. My band snapped and I replaced it with a thick hair rubber-band ... there's always three or four on the floor near the shower. Works beautifully, stretches great, durable, and plentiful at my house.

    All the best,
    lael

    Mine broke also… only lasted a few shoots.

    Have put in the spare, ordered replacements.

    Hopefully there is a more robust solution for the M15.

    So I suppose this is how the frame end should be mounted?

    Walmart has them. Although you have to buy it in a pack of 25. Elastic hair bands. I have used one for 2 yrs now.
