I've gone through two of the DJI gimbal lock/lens covers on my P4P. They break where they snap onto the legs. I won't be ordering another one. I've seen a couple versions from Polar Pro. Have you used them? What do think of them? Are there any other choices?

I'm in the same boat. Someone will give us an answer.

Got this one in some package deal. I like the stock one better. So far, I have not had an issue.

I noticed how tight the stock one is to snap on. I'm going to file the opening a bit wider to make it easier to install, hopefully before it breaks. I feel that I may damage the gimbal mechanism simply by forcing it to install.

PolarPro one is good because it accommodates the filter as well - bit pricey though!

Filing and sanding the single inner lip on each side did the trick. Snaps on and off so much easier. And the stock unit does fit over my filters just fine. They are about the same diameter as the stock lens protector that you unscrew to put filters on.
