It clips on to your device using an included soft rubber clip that won't cause damage or leave scratches. Also included is a rubber eyecup, which helps to ensure more comfortable viewing, plus two lens caps and a cleaning cloth. Protection is provided by free lifetime technical support and a limited 2-year warranty.

Please note that Apexel's 18x Optical Telephone Lens fits more securely on your phone when your phone's case is taken off.
