Help! Rudy Project Tayo Lense Removal(6 posts)

Help! Rudy Project Tayo Lense RemovalFred2000
Nov 1, 2002 8:18 AM
Alright, I just got a set of yellow lenses for the overcast days ahead and I am trying to get the current lenses out of my RP Tayo's.

Now I might not be too bright but I have no idea which way to pull them to pop them out. Everything I have tried makes me feel like I am going to break the frames.

If anyone could clue me in either by discription or direction to some website info I (and my frames) would appreicate it.

Thanks, Jon

P.S. Think I had no need for the owners information, I threw it out shortly after purchase. Is there a PDF version somewhere out there?

If it's anything like the Kerosenes, you push down on the middle of the frame and pull up on the sides and they pop right out.

Had a pair of Tayo's but never took the lenses out. I'd just call Rudy; they've been very helpful with problems in the past.

Grip the bottom of the lens half way along and tease the bottom of the frame away with the other hand - work your way along the edge to the nose bridge to release the bottom corner - the lens should then pop out quite easily. Grip the lens with a soft cloth to prevent scratching. I've just done it here and now with my own glasses - no problem.

I asked this question about 1 month ago and received a very helpful response. Here is the link:

I have RX Graal FYOLs from In-Spex. They arrive, first thing I try is to swap out the lenses. I can't. I call In-Spex, the conversation went something like this:

Me: I'm trying to pop the lense out and it feels like I'm gonna snap the thing in two.

Jim: You can't break it, push on it.

Me: I am pushing, it's gonna break.

Jim: It won't break.

Me: It's gonna snap!!!

Jim: It won't snap!! It's supposed to be really locked in there that's what prevents unintentionally disengagement.

Me: I tell ya,....I'm gonna break it!!!!

Jim: If you break em, I'll send you a new pair. Now....Don't be a WUSS push it out.

----picture me pushing so hard I'm sure the frames gonna fold-----

Me: Hey!!! whatta you know it poped right out.

Jim: Great, enjoy the glasses.

So, your experience is completely normal, I can now swap out with ease.

Good luck

Scot
