How To- Arm & Lens Replacement
Arm Removal and Replacement:
All Heat Wave Visual® sunglasses feature a hardwareless hinge design that allows for no hassle customization and assembly on the fly. With the twist of your wrist you can snap arms in-and-out of place. No screws or tools required. So even if life decides to deal you a wicked curve-ball and your shades are slammed, sat on, etc. it’s rarely a game ruiner. Just snap the arms back into place and you’re good to go.
With the frame facing away from you and the arm fully extended grab the arm near the hinge firmly with your dominant hand, while holding the frame with your non-dominate hand.
Then holding both the frame and arm securely simply twist the arm, rolling the arm off of the ball hinge.
Hold the frame in the same manner as when the arms were removed. Grab the arm and with the HW logo facing up place your thumb on top of it.
With the arm fully extended press the channel of the arm over the post on the frame.
Rotate the arm in the same direction it was removed (clockwise shown) while applying downward pressure until it is in place.
It is recommended that arms always be removed and installed in the same direction to increase the longevity of the hinge system. Always remove/install arms fully extended. Removing them at an angle, or when folded can cause premature wear or damage to both the arm and frame.
Heat Wave Visual® replacement arms are available in our arms collection.
How To Remove And Install Lenses:
Most Heat Wave Visual® glasses (with the exception models marked Z87, and RX) feature removable lenses allowing you to swap lenses in and out to adapt to any situation, from to day to night and everything in-between Heat Wave Visual® has your eyes covered.
Holding the frame from the rear use your thumbs to firmly press the lens outwards.
Push the lens completely through the frame until it is fully popped out. (Don't worry, you will not break the lens or frame.) Repeat this motion for both sides.
To install the lens grab the frame from the front and use your non-dominant thumb to pop the lens in starting towards the nose bridge.
With your dominant thumb apply pressure around the perimeter and guide the remainder of the lens into place. Inspect to ensure that the lens is fully seated in its channel and clean with microfiber before use.
