OOPS?! Albinar Auto 2x Converter

I bought this for my k10d and I think I goofed, it won't mount on the camera, it's will fit the holes but a sliding black tab keeps it from fitting flush to the mount and turning...It says pentax so is this for a pentax video camera or something? The converter has the number 861 on the side.

It is a K-mount all right but form pictures I have seen of it the sliding black tab is somewhat large and there may not be room for it in the k10D.

If you have an original Pentax K, M, F or FA lens you could compare.

The tab has no function on a DSLR, so perhaps you could remove it, or grind it down (assuming that you're talking about the tab that moves when you turn the aperture ring).

Bent tab?

The tab opens the aperture on the lens. Is yours bent? Post a pic.
