Cable adaptor installation video - shows the steps for passing your cables thru the Outex cable adaptor and threading the seal for the cover and the cable with the use the Outex plug.
Cable Adaptors require use of any Outex "T" cover. The "T" stands for Tripod openings, but the openings are the same size as the Cable Adaptor openings, so any T opening works for both/either.
Script (for reference)
The cable adaptor is not for the trivial user. It’s a more complex power, lighting or data solution for tethered connectivity to & from the camera. Eeven underwater.
In this example, we will not be using the Outex cover. This is only so you can see details of the fittings.
Start by putting your cable through the [Cable adaptor rings. The outter rings have the L-shaped O-rings, that work just like all the other Outex seals. Make sure the cables you’re using are water-ready].
Next, apply or insert the malleable, specially designed Outex plug. Align the flat end of the plug with the appropriately flat inside of the corresponding cable adaptor. The plug will be sandwiched between the two internal ends of the cable adaptor as you thread them, providing the waterproof seal. As you compress the cable adaptor internal halves together, thread it back & forth to keep the plug as symmetrical internally as possible. You can tell by the alignment of the slits on the plug. The plug and adaptor’s lubrication facilitates this process.
If not using a plug with slit, you can skip that step. The plug is then just used to plug the Cover opening. The same opening could also be plugged with a Tripod Adaptor.
Now you’re ready to apply the Outex cover and connect the cables withing the housing to the camera. The LCD-capable covers make it easier because of the larger openings on both front & back of the camera.
Place the O-Ring over the cover – making sure the L shaped edge is facing down. This seal works like all other Outex seals. The LEFT hand in this video represents the exterior parts of the seal. The right hand represents the parts INSIDE of the Outex Cover.
Now you can complete the seal by threading on the third O-ring. You don’t need to over-tighten, but make sure its nice and tight.
Over time, you may want additional lubrication by re-applying the silicone grease that’s readily available at scuba shops or online. For additional questions check our FAQ or contact us online.
