Since the day I got my P3S and removed the gimbal guard I have never been able to re-install it. I have watched videos of several people re-installing this guard with ease but I cant even get the camera all by itself to slide in between the bottom lip and top of the guard. Its like my guard shrank. Anyhooo... Even if I did get it on I have no doubt it will be a b!tch to get off.

Any suggestions for an alternative?

My P3S gimbal lock doesn't slide on easily either. I can get it on, but it takes a little more patience than the other P3 models.

I haven't tried this yet, but a bit of light sanding on the inside bottom part of the gimbal lock might fix it. That's where mine seems to create a lot of friction.

Well, glad to hear that I am not alone :)
Yeah, I gave up, it just added stress.
I m really surprised I have never seen a post, I broke my camera installing the gimbal guard.

I actually don't know where mine is. :rolleyes:
