Hi guys,

I was looking around my sled and found that there is a couple of IN/OUT plugs I never or rarely use. My last job got my sled so dusty I was wondering about protecting those fragile Lemo plugs from the elements.
I went to my technician and he got his Lemo connectors catalog out and found some plastic caps designed for the 2 sizes of plugs we encounter as PRO and Sachtler rigs owners. As usual, I found the price of those little plastic caps completly insane (Almost 8$ each cap, I had 17 holes to fill, 136$)....
So I went to my nearest electronic store to find some nice little soft rubber caps that fit so nicely, at a price everybody will cheer, 5 CENTS each... You just have to pinch them to take them out...And pinch yourself for not buying the Lemo ones...
It really is those nice little moments I enjoy in our quest for cheaper alternatives in a world where everything seems to start with a 1000$ tag...
Here is a picture of my Artemis top Junction box with my black rubber cap over the video in plug and the smallest ones (yellow) over the focus pwr... I even put some on my Bartech ("data out" and "power in" plugs you never use are now protected).
