Liquid Flatlock: Replacement Kidney Bean??
I recently bought a Cookie CX100 cage and liquid flatlock and I seem to have misplaced the small blue "kidney bean" that goes in the slot next to the metal mechanism... my two questions are 1) is the flatlock still usable without it 2)where can I find a replacement
1) It is not usable without it. There is nothing holding the flange into the mount. 2) a) Contact whomever you bought it from and see if they can't lend you one out of their stock until they can get one in from cookie. b) Contact Cookie composites via email@example.com and have them post/sell? you one. c) I believe the demo box is at chutingstar in deland, perhaps they would be so kind to get one out of their parts kit. (cookie composites maybe able to shed some light onto who might have some spare parts) d) Take your girlfriend's sex toy and cut off a chunk of silicone that fits the void where the "kidney" goes. ;-)
Sorry but I don't have one here. You can probably get away with making one by injecting the void with some RTV silicone and letting it dry that is if none of the above solutions work for you, but then again its probably worth the wait so you don't loose a camera or kill someone on the ground.
