Choose SIRUI's simple mobile phone mounts as per mobile phones' models and dimensions for the installation of 18-WA lens. First, put the simple mount on the top of the phone, push it to the bottom; make sure the big circle's centre is aimed to the phone's camera, then press the lens into the mount and push it to the bottom, rotate 90 degree in the arrow direction marked on the lens.
