    Ok, so here is my story. I bought a Mars Crater with bad lenses. This might sound ghetto fab but, I am going out of town on Tues. Have a new set of lenses coming Mon. C Clips, sometime in the future. I really want to wear this pair on my trip but, need to try to come up with the best idea for holding the orbitals shut just for a couple of days. I have some stuff in mind but, I'd like to see what happens when we all brainstorm. Ideas will be considered here. Thanms ahead of time guys.

    I have ideas but they won't work holding those nice new lenses in from falling out. Sorry

  4. @qtrain23 (pretty sure it was him at least) has said before that using fine wire will work just fine.

    Yea I just use 1/16" aluminum wire. Much easier to get off when you need to change lenses too
