How to change a 509 Aviator Goggle Lens


Hey everybody, Seth here at Up North
Sports and we’re about to do the aviator lens change and this is the aviator by
509. You’re not gonna be seeing these frames too far too often any longer, but
there are going to be tons of different lenses still available, so in the event
that you want to make a lens change on this one it is one of the easier ones in
the lineup. However, it’s typically one that I like
to just stow an additional frame with, but here’s a real nice easy way to make a
lens change. Before we even jump into it guys, you’re gonna notice there are these
key points that are the same color as the outside of the frame those,are gonna
be the same matching points to the lens you’re gonna see that when we open it up
but those are where you’re gonna have to meet up. So I like to take my dominant
hand which is my right hand I like just to hook it right around the inside
portion of the frame, right on the nose piece there and then I’d like to spread
my fingers out across the bottom and give it a more sturdy feel. Bring my left dominate hand in at the top of the frame and again spreading your fingers
out in a way that that covers the majority of the frame again to give it
an easier pull apart because what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna peel this this
frame apart and the lens is gonna come out actually pretty easily. So, again hook
goes in make it nice and sturdy and then just peel it apart and guys don’t worry
about getting on this rarely is there ever been an issue with all the lens
changes I’ve made on these with breaking the frames. They’re pretty sturdy, they’re
pretty flexible, but you would want to do is take them take this thing out of all
the points of contact that we were just talking about. So again you’ll notice in
the lens there’s a cutout for the nose piece and then those grooves they’re
gonna meet up with the corresponding spots on the frame. So again the lenses
out you take your new replacement lens and guys I like to start with the nose
piece it’s a nice central spot it’s an easy place to go to and what you’re
gonna do is you’re gonna see a small groove that’s gonna be in there and
that’s we’re gonna want to connect that nose piece, otherwise it’s a pretty easy
distance across and a way to get this thing connected, but start in the center
you’re gonna feel a nice click you’re gonna hear a nice click even and then I
like to go and work my way around the frame with each individual point and
again this is one of the easier lens changes, one that you could do out on the
side of the trail you know or the mountain were you wanting to really take
some time, but I’m in a temperature-controlled room at a table
where it’s nice and comfortable and it’s making it easier for me and I’m still
having just a bit of time taking on this. So again real
easy lens change one that is one of the easier through the lineup, meet those
grooves up guys get those things nice and tight in place and you have yourself
an aviator lens change!
