    the LS should be snug. It shld cover about 2cm onto the flash head. make sure the LS is the correct size for your 430EX

    Did u buy it specially for 430EX? If yes then should be ok. When u put the LS onto the flash head, it should go all the way until the stopper inside of the LS, then it should be firmly fitted.

    maybe he's talking about the older one that needs the adaptor...i use 3m velcros to secure it...one on the lightsphere on on the flash...and one to join both together when the LS is attached..

    Use a tape to gaffer the portion which the LS is attached to.
