Clean, Dry, Store, Lube as needed
Rinse the Outex components with tap/clean water and regular/mild soap when finished using the product. Make sure to remove any residue, sand, dust, or oils. It's ok to use a toothbrush on the threads to help you remove any debris.
Towel them slightly and allow them to air dry overnight unattached for a complete dry.
We offer some protective gear in our store, but you can use regular camera storage materials and compartments in your bag or closet for storage. Treat the optics as you would your other camera gear. Avoid zip-lock bags or cramped humid spaces. Dry, well-ventilated is best.
Outex components come pre-lubed from the factory with common/regular scuba grade silicone grease, and lubrication lasts for several uses. If you notice poor or difficult threading over time on any of the rings or adaptors, apply silicone-grease lubricant with a Q-tip as needed, evenly in small amounts and spread it evenly over the circumferences of the rings to return lubrication.
