    Confused Rimless Riddle

    Morning Everybody,

    So, a customer dropped off a set of rimless glasses with a coworker of mine yesterday, complaining that the right temple was loose. For note, my coworker is still inexperienced with mounting rimless glasses but I've worked with her extensively and have confidence she could handle any model we carry easily. But not this set... Came in this morning to find it waiting for me and I have already tried to refit the temple myself, yet it still wobbles around... After looking up the frame I've found it is a Walmart frame from the " Naturally Rimless" line. Specifically NR 339.
    We only carry Marchon rimless here and though the fittings seem to match it doesn't.

    Anyone have any experience with these frames that can shed some light on this one?

    Different size drill hole? Perhaps you need a larger mounting sleeve.

    I think they use "Totally Rimless" from the McGee Group (they may have re-named them for Walmart use). Try McGee for the mounting sleeves.
    Lost and confused in an optical wonderland!

    Appreciate it Peyes, I had to refer the customer else where as it seems my lab has none. :/
    Looks like I have some more things to add to my "We ran out of these before I got hired here" list.
