seen those arycase but there does not seem to be distributor in the uk and they seem to average between 30 and 40 pound plus p+p from germany .....there seems to be some copies on evil bay round the tenner mark but not sure whether they are any good tbh.

I bought a camera wrist strap of ebay £1 including postage .. Takes a bit of patience threading it through the little hole in the control box and rubber cover but its ideal ::g

Hi guys,

I have the Lite at the moment.
I found the little black cover in the box. I pushed it on to the top of the stem and it came off again pretty easy when I was messing about showing off the Deus to my brother, very embarrassing! I tried it again and then left it off as it doesn't appear to lock on and would probably fall off again.
Is the control unit as easy as the little stem cover in falling off then?
I bought my Deus last week so assume its latest version?
I do have the control unit arriving tomorrow. It looks like I might need me a lanyard by the sounds of it. :(

When I first got mine the control box was very hard to get of the stem .. After it came of a couple of times it's now quite loose ( not like its going to fall off but if it gets knocked it will ) so I have got a lanyard now .( camera wrist strap ::g ).. The first versions were a magnet on the stem and they we're known for falling of ::g

Just come across this thread - some good ideas! I used a trace (three for 99p ) from our local DIY/outdoor shop angling section. The clip hooked onto the controller, and a length of ribbon (!) was tied into the swivel. Job done.

Thanks JBM, I have had the Deus for a few years now. Lost the controller first time when pushing through foliage when trying to find my dog that had decided chasing after rabbits was more interesting than watching me detect, cannot blame her. Went back next morning, retraced my steps andf there it was on the ground, VERY lucky man!
I never learned my lesson of course and a few days ago when out on stubble, went to check a signal and no controller! Rule number one would have been to note exactly where I was as the thing might be just a few yards away, but silly me started walking all over the place and I spent around two hours searching the stubble without success. I went back in the evening and used my brain to retrace my steps, remembered stumbling at one time on a rock hard bit of furrow .. after about an hour I found it lying there and then you realise how small it is and how lucky I was to find it again.
So, lesson learnt and I will now take JBM's advice and make up a little lanyard as I may not be as lucky next time round, Liam ::g

Well done Liam you were very lucky twice over.

Here is another view and they cost nothing to make up but 5 minutes of the owners time. ::g Jerry.

I'm with Jerry on this one...Although not made for the deus this aryca case fits perfect and the silicone front moulds to the buttons making them easy to use....And it comes with a strong landyard....Sorted... ::g ::g

You must get the correct one.

I found this one on eBay. I think it's the right one. How did you fit it to the top of your stem? I can't work out how you've done it.
Cheers.

That's the one...You've got a couple of ways of attaching it...As alloverover says you can bond it to the stem blanking cap or you can get hold of a spare rc holder for about a tenner as JBM has suggested and bond the case to that and then just swap them out via the 2 screws....Some might see it as a bit over the top but at 600 quid a pop it's worth the extra protection in my eyes...I used epoxy to bond them and it holds fine but someone else might be able to suggest something else....
