Description

This frame is designed to clip over the body of the Aladdin LED 'A-Light’.

​

The frame has two slots for sliding in gels and styrofoam type diffusion such as Depron.

​

The back slot is 1mm deep and can take gels etc. whereas the front slot is just over 3mm deep and takes 3mm material (can also take 6mm Depron; see below)

​

Has the added advantage of acting as a protective bumper.

Details

​

1. The frame should be fitted so that the larger cut-out on the frame is at the top and the smaller cut-out is at the bottom 1/4” threaded mounting point. To clip the frame over the body of the 'A-Light’, it should be hooked onto the top of the A-Light and then snapped home over the bottom. Removal is just the reverse although once clipped on, it is meant to stay on. All the ports and controls along with the bottom 1/4" mounting point are still accessible and the battery can be changed via the side flap as normal.

​

2. This frame has two slots for sliding in gels and diffusion.

​

The back slot is 1mm deep and is meant to take gels.

​

The front slot is just over 3mm deep and takes 3mm styrofoam-type diffusion such as Depron.

​

Your diffusion/gels should be cut 62mm wide (130mm long) to ensure a good sliding fit in the slots.

​

3. The front slot can also be used to hold 6mm Depron by sliding your cut piece into position so that it is half in and half out of the 3mm slot. The horizontal ridges on the frame, which normally hold the 3mm depron in place will cut into the top and bottom edges of your 6mm Depron piece, holding it in place.

​

4. Also this frame is supplied with a small spacer block so that if you want the flexibility of also using the plastic diffuser which is supplied with the A-Light, then you can simply unscrew the diffuser plate from its hinge and (replacing the M2.5 x 4mm bolts with longer M2.5 x 8mm bolts) fix it back on the hinge with the small spacer in between. In the UK, I've found Westfield Fasteners very easy to deal with when needing the odd nuts and bolts.
