It definately looks like a leak.

If the seal is ok. Then it holds for days on my Nauticam Housing.

I just pump it down until it goes green.

Remove the O-ring that keep the original "plastic LED holder/lense" (whatever it should be called).

You do not need to remove more than that. You have a new one in your package.

Use the new one it is easier.


I believe that they have used a small drop of glue originally to hold the LED in place. I think that I was cutting the old wires , due to that.

If I would try to bring a Pelican on-board here in Europe the would just start laughing at me :-)


I check in my Strobes. I use a plastic "Lunch-box" for it.

The Camera and a Lense are fitted into the UW-housing and I carry it separetely.

I use a Duffel Backpack for the Lenses and the big Domeport. The lenses are protected by padded Lense bags.

The Domeport is protected by a Regulator back and some pastic on Sun-shade side.


I am of the opinion that you should avoid a roller-bags. They are more visible than Backpacks and looks heavier.

People with Rollerbags seems to be stopped a lot more often than not!


Well, this System works fine for me for some years now.

The ports should nicely be held in place, due to underpressure.
