    Great quality

    Great performance but very unpractical package.You dont need all the content inside the tube so if it remains opened it can be easilly wasted. I suggest a stronger package with a cap.

    Decent price

    Good price but the capsules are not resealable. You have to use the whole tube or just throw it away.

      Comments about Ikelite Silicone Lubricant Tube:

      Works great. This is the original silicone that comes with your Ikelite case. They don't give you a lot, so if you are planning to do much diving, stock up. Never use your case without cleaning and lubing your o-rings.

      Comments about Ikelite Silicone Lubricant Tube:

      Product came shipped to me just as I ordered. It's a necessity if you own an underwater housing. You have to keep the O-ring properly lubricated. My only criticism, it would be nice if the tubes were resealable. You use so little each time, it could be wasteful.

                              This item was recommended by the manufacture for use on the camera housing o-ring. The product itself works fine. The only problem is the packaging of the lubricant. It is contained in a small tube, that once it is opened, there is no way to reseal it, making it a problem to keep it clean and uncontaminated. The o-ring requires very little product and therefore you only require a small usage. Other companies package the item in a re sealable container, which is ideal.

                                  "For want of a nail the kingdom was lost". There's no reason to have a dive trip ruined because you managed to dry out an o-ring and get a leak. Get some, tuck it away, and have it when you need it.

                                        I was disappointed that the silicone lubricant doesn't have a screw cap on them, or some type of cap. The tube is too big to use all at once, and will be awkward to try to reseal in something to save it for the next time I use it.
