I have an Atomic Subframe mask that I want to replace the lenses in. I have the new lenses but can't seem to find anything in here or on the internet that shows how to replace them. I could just start having at it but I don't want to make a wrong move and ruin the mask.
Thanks.

Hello !
Exact same question here. I have bought the Atomic Subframe Mask specifically because it says you can replace the lenses. I bought reading lenses for the mask. Did you get any helpful replies?

No, I ended up just tearing into it and it ended up being fairly straight forward. I wouldn't say "easy" but do-able. You just have to make sure everything snaps back into place when you put it back together. One of my lenses leaked badly when I first jumped in the water after changing them out. I was able to put some pressure on them where the leak was and actually heard it snap into place. No more leak after that!

Perfect timing, friend was asking me if I knew anything about changing this out a few days ago. Thanks!

Any time! I have had more than my share of help from others in this forum. Nice to be able to give back a little!

After you replace the lenses, squirt a little soapy water on the inside of the mask. Then blow some compressed air on the outside. Any leaks will make bubbles -- if you see them, you will then have to re-seat the lenses.

Certainly better than the way I did it:

Put on mask. Jump in. If the mask fills up with water, you have a leak! :eek: :D

I used to do it for customers. Your method "may" have been problematic.:oops:

I use water as a lube to reassemble
and make sure the hair falling out of my head lands on the floor

Simplest mask ever
