We've already tested this type of mask were the sides overlap, which still allow light to leak underneath. The good thing with your mask is them being made from a pastic type material. This adds rigidity, if we cut the overlap out they may accomplish the goal and lay flat against the wheel. The 3 tabs for the screw mount is perfect but reducing the outside diameter to fit within the filter area, in my case 36mm, would prove most beneficial easest


thanks for the feedback
yes, we know there is overlap and we thought it should stop the light
but seems we were wrong
we will try to fix in the future
and provide better screws

Hello Sam, how are the masks for 31mm filters?

If possible, you can attach a .DXF or .STL drawing to be able to 3D print the masks myself at home.
regards
Julio.
