Introduction: Redneck Fix for Camera Lid for Free!!
I bought a bridge camera the past weekend in Wallapop (Craigslist similar in Spain) for 25€, the only problem, besides it uses AA batteries, is that the lens lid was broken (I nearly lose it on the beach where i bought it!) I'm a cheapstake, so I don't want to spend 4 bucks (if even more) in a aftermarket lid which, I don't really know if it will fit, so, it came to me how to fix it by spending no money (well, a couple cents maybe...)
Step 1: Materials You Need:
Zip ties (I had to use 2, depending of the zip ties you have and how big your lid is)
Sand paper (I used 100 grit)
Step 2: Cut If You Need to
Carefully cut the small "hinge" or the remainings, with special attention to not break the "horns" base while you're cutting it (or who cares, the zip tie will cover it heh heh heh)
Step 3: Sand
Step 4: Zip It, Glue, and Cut the Zip Ties
Pass the cord through the zip tie, and glue it. I glued it all around the zip tie, but not the cord, just in case i want to remove it some day
Step 5: Done!
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
