Split focusing screen install

Can anyone please point me toward something that shows the proper way to install a split screen?

I bought one of the inexpensive ones for $29.99 but no instructions with it (not surprising!).

Thank you!

Bob

Here is a video which should help:



YouTube - K10D Changing your focusing screen.


There are excellent written directions found in this thread, along with pics too:

The Katzeye instructions (I think you can find them in their website) are the best instuctions for me. I tried installing using the video but couldn't figure out how and scartched my original screen in the process.
