    I have two pairs of Oakley Fives 4.0 and if like to interchange their lenses.

    I've seen this tutorial of YouTube:

    Does it cover all the bases? What I mean is that I want to avoid scratching them or even worse, chipping them while removing and reinstalling them.
    Can you suggest a better tutorial?

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't try to push out the lenses hinge wise.
    Your Fives lenses will come out a bit stronger than in the video, because your frame is much smaller.
    Mostly it's a combination of pulling the upper part of the orbital and pushing the lens out.

    As long as your not ripping them out like a psycho, you won't damage them. I take the lenses out of all my O Matter frames when i clean them.

    I did it without chipping or scratching any of the lenses. :)

    Looking good. Black/Fire is my favorite combo.

    I've just worn them a bit since it's so sunny and warm today and they are simply great. The lenses do have a yellowish tint and they're great in direct sunlight.
    They're growing on me too.
