Getting assemled the 4 " Aluminium enclosure without breaking the seals?

Do you have a vent plug installed in one of the end plates? The o-ring race is going to be air tight and you could stand on it without the pieces mating. If you don’t have a vent plug, I highly suggest that everyone install one to allow installation / removal of the end plates. Makes life MUCH easier.

My way was to remove the dome, put some wood with a hole in the middle to avoid damaging the camera and somebody was pushing the enclosure against the wall, by my side I had a gum end hammer and hitted on the sides maybe 3 to 4 times.

But yes its really difficult to do it alone.

Hi Christian,

Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your 4 inch enclosure. We had a batch of flanges that the o-ring grooves were not deep enough that we did not catch until it was too late. If you can email us your order details at support@bluerobotics.com or me at jonathan@bluerobotics.com, we can get some replacements sent out ASAP.

you can try to preheat the tube and use the vacuum pump when you install it.
