Did your outer reflector suffer a bit too much of a bump? Replacing the outer reflector on your strobe is quick and easy to do with just a thin, flat screwdriver. Ikelite product specialist Steve Johnson shows you how to do it from start to finish in under 2 minutes.
If a DS160, DS161, or DS125 strobe suffers a severe impact, it’s possible to dent or damage the outer aluminum reflector. This piece is an easy replacement using the Ikelite part # 0606.33. Here's how it’s done:
1 | Separate the Shroud from the Strobe
Use a very thin, flat headed screwdriver to gently separate the rubber shroud from the front of the strobe. Place the screwdriver between the rubber shroud and the front of the strobe, and push the screwdriver along the outer diameter to separate the shroud all the way around.
2 | Remove the Damaged Reflector
Remove the damaged reflector from the shroud and install the new piece in its place.
3 | Replace the Rubber Shroud
Press the rubber shroud back onto the front of the strobe. You want to make sure to push it all of the way down until it meets the gray strobe body.
If you have any questions about your strobe, or any Ikelite products, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
