Here’s a quick guide on how to install your AnamorphX GP on your GoPro shell to make it anamorphic. The process takes no longer than a couple of minutes!

I’m Tito Ferradans and this is a tutorial on how to install the Letus AnamorphX-GP adapter on a GoPro shell. The adapter is only compatible with the plus version cases. It will not fit the non-plus cases. Trust me, I tried.

The first step is to take out the original clear lens in the case. You’ll do that by removing the four screws on the inside. Use a long and thin Torx screwdriver and apply reasonable pressure so the screws won’t strip.


Once you’re done taking the glass out, bring on the AnamorphX. Don’t forget the rubber insulation piece. Put it on the back of the lens, matching the little groove.

Align it to the case, the two dots on the lens match the dots on the top of the case, and start putting the screws back in. Don’t tighten them completely just yet and go for an X pattern. First here, then the opposite corner and so on.

Once all four are put in, tighten them a little bit each until they’re all secure, which makes the case waterproof again.
