    The one provided is cheaply made to say the least and tough to get back in, kinda. Anyone have any insight on an upgraded one?

    Thanks but I was thinking something along the lines of this.

    You can do a search on the board for many threads and hundreds of posts on this.

    Yes I'm happy with it. One thing worth noting is that I have to put a piece of gaffer tape to secure it to the gimbal or else it wobbles too much. It looks like the yellow one above would be more secure.

    I've never had a problem installing the stock lock but removing it takes a bit more force than I would like at times.

    How about one that will fit with a push on ND filter?

    Here is the one I like. Comes with a gimbal guard as well.

    It's called courtesy... something you are not showing. Others have already put time and effort into giving this same input into prior threads. What you are doing is ignoring this prior effort and asking people to repost everything so you don't need to spend any effort yourself.

    In other words, your being rude with a "no thanks" response.

    This one will change color in UV light. It would be hard to forget to remove it.

    Thanks for your words of encouragement but it's not needed. Once again, thanks though.

    What Streve said ^^

    I got used to the one that was supplied by dji but because it was clear I usually forgot to take it off..

    The free one I received with my taco filters is even easier to put on or off & white

    I like the lock that comes with the p3p. It keeps the gamble and camera steady so I can change lens without doing damage to either
