USCamera Light Seal Placement Guide | Konica Auto S3

 

Somewhat unusual for film cameras,  this model Konica only uses light seals on the back cover assembly.

TechNote: The hinge plate seal can be a tricky install.  I recommend practicing with a thick piece paper the same size as the seal, so you can get a feel of how that seal needs to slide into place. For a smooth installation, using Purell or another additive free hand sanitizer as an adhesive delay agent on both the light seal adhesive itself and location on the back cover is highly recommended.

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.
