A snoot is an accessory that can be added to a light fixture used to reduce glare, control the direction of the light, and change the radius of the light beam. Snoots are often used in photography but are also great for architectural lighting techniques. They come in different sizes, shapes, lengths, and colors so that lighting designers can have optimal control over their lighting.
The art of changing a Lumenture snoot is one that can be learned by anyone. Let us show you how we do it over here at Lumenture HQ!
STEP 1. Remove the Standard Ring
All of our track heads have our innovative accessory holder. The accessory holder has “threading” in the light fixture as well as the snoot or ring that you are attaching to it. This threading allows the ring to screw off very easily.
Just twist the snoot off of the light fixture like you open a jar of honey.
STEP 2. Choose Your Replacement Snoot
Get your replacement snoot ready to go if you’re changing a snoot for a new one. At Lumenture, we have a standard tapered snoot and cylinder snoot.
P.S. If you are adding additional lens accessories, you can use the same method to add and remove a snoot!
STEP 3. Change the Snoot
Replace your old snoot with the new snoot by using the same motion as closing a jar (righty-righty!). Make sure that you tighten it all of the way to avoid any light leakage.
