Heh, anyone know the name/description from Oakley for the screwpoints below orbits on the frame for Juliets/ other respective X-Metals or have I described it above?

They're either "Torx" (star shaped) or allen bolts.

Is that the info you're looing for?

Usually a t-5 or t-6 bolt.

Thanks Dave, but not the right part: on the front of the frame, below the orbits in the two metal protrusions, what are the two protrusions of the frame called or more relevant are they described?

It sounds like you are talking about at the bottom outside corner of the orbitals (around the lenses). That part of the frame does not really have a specific or special name. When describing it to customers I inform them that it is there as a unique way to acess the lenses for replacing them.

OK, thanks Paul: I just wanted to know the best way to describe them so I could make reporting fakes unmistakeable even to eBay!

Does anyone have a better method than this?

The item is fake. The frame beneath the orbits has no holes for the screws to screw in for changing

What wording do you use?

Intake ports.

Reference the product info for Juliet:

Flex couplers allow this 25-piece blend of X Metal® and art to fit naturally around the skull. The adjustable frame includes temple shocks, interchangeable nosebombs, and all the innovations that sculptural physics can offer. Chiseled intake ports bolt the contoured orbitals around pure Plutonite® lenses to retain the precise geometry of XYZ Optics®. Prescription ready.

Eddy the man! I would have not made that connection because I think of venting when I think of an intake port.

I have been shammed in my knowledge, back to the studies for me!

You know, a picture would have been IMMENSELY helpful. :rolleyes:

and I agree, intake port tells me "venting". Chalk it up to Oakley marketing's "creative" hijacking of words.

Though if you are looking to use that terminology with ebay ... I'm guessing telling them "it's missing intake ports!!" isn't going to get you too far with them. At that point, you are back to dumbing it down to describing the telling difference between authentic and fake.

Dave, you need a picture for understanding such rudimentary stuff?

"Authentic Oakley eyewear of this style have a break in the frame with associated screws that hold the frame together at each of the lower outside corners of the orbitals. These glasses for auction lack the screws and related frame structure in that area - which is one of the most significant indicators that these are a fake/replicated item."

Yes please. Dumb it down so Paul can understand. He is clearly in a fog.

Oogie, don't know about eBay US, but over here I have 100 characters to fit the explanation in: so now do you think you could try that with 100 characters please, not so easy now, is it! I didn't know the eBay US site had a larger/unlimited characters for the Report section.
