“The most important and time consuming work is removing the old seals. Focus on clean, clean, clean. Clean the old residue from the door channels, mirror cushion area, door hinge area and anywhere else you are replacing the seals. The finest adhesive in the world will not adhere to that sticky, gooey residue that was once a quality light seal. Proper installation will give you thousands of light tight exposures.”

USCamera sell light seal kits, light seal material and parts for film cameras. We still enjoy working on them.

Yashica cameras were made by Kyocera Japan. Though no longer making film cameras, what they are doing, see this

USCamera Light Seal Installation Guide  – Yashica FR FRI FRII

Before you do anything, please read general instructions on installing light seals here.

Next you will need to take all of the seals out of the kit and lay them out on your work area. This kit includes,

door channel seals for the camera body – 2 x 1mm
back cover on the door latch plate –           1 x 2mm
back cover hinge side seal, back cover –   1 x 2mm
camera body, hinge side seal –                  1 x 2mm
mirror cushion –                                          1 x 2mm

Tech Note. You will need to remove the back cover from the camera body. If you look carefully at the hinge side of the back cover. Many FR series cameras have a very small slotted screw attached to the hinge pin.  That pin will retract if you push straight down on the screw with your finger nail and you can remove the back cover from the camera body. If the small screw is not visible, you may be able to push down on the hinge pin with a tweezers point and remove the back cover from the camera body.  Use Caution as the hinge pin is spring loaded, you do not want to launch it across your room. If you are unable to remove per the instructions above, you will have to remove the bottom coverand then the 2 screws that hold the lower hinge pin pivot in place.

Back cover, door latch plate seal. Install the 2mm thick seal on the latch plate, centering the seal on the latch plate between top and bottom edges of the back cover.

Back cover, hinge side seal. Install this 2mm x 7mm wide seal on the hinge side of the back cover, starting at the top edge of the door channel, horizontally aligned with and butted against the hinge edge.

Camera body, hinge side seal. Install the hinge seal on the camera body starting at the top and working down.

Camera Body, door channel seals. Install the upper and lower back cover channel seals starting at the hinge side on the camera body, working from right to left. The upper channel has the counter actuation lever. You will need to install this seal as close to each side of the counter lever opening as possible.

Tech Note. CAUTION Do not be fooled by what appears to be an easy removal of the focusing screen retainer which the mirror cushion attached to. Only 2 screws. Yes, but the focusing screen retainer plate holds the screen frame and screen spring in place also. It takes great care and practice to reassemble those pieces without damaging the fresnel.

Mirror Cushion. Now, with the utmost care, install the mirror cushion. Center the cushion on the focusing screen retainer plate. This cushion was not intended to fit to edge of the mirror box like many mirror cushions. Remember if any thing touches the focus screen, it will likely be permanently damaged.
