Ikelite 8" Dome

Recommended Posts

I just received an Ikelite 8" dome for Nikon 12-24. Ikelite describes the mounting body lengths as changeable. Has anyone changed these? Do they screw in/out? It seems pretty solid and I don't want to put much pressure on it until I know how it works.

Sears sells a great strap wrench that works well for unscrewing the stalks ..... get the small one for $5

Taking the short stalk out the first time was pretty tough. After that, it's was much easier. I was on the verge of calling Ike for tech support. It just took some elbow grease...

 

I agree, the strap wrench would have done the job much easier....

Yep, I needed someone else to hold the dome for me to screw it out the first time. The second time I muscled through it myself but its tough. Ike recommended a strap wrench:

 

Strap wrench recommended for removal. These do not need to be "tight" when installed as seal is side-to-side. Simply screw into place by hand without any "tightening" at all. A little lube definitely recommended on the sealing "O" ring.

 

 

I'm headed out to buy one.
