hey, i feel like an idiot right now....i use a photek softlighter II the 60" version.... and im sick of having problems closing it! It never closes anywhere close to how it was when i got it and im scared to break any of the delicate little arms inside it..... is there like a technique im missing out on?

Shaking it some will help, watch too that the parts of the umbrella look uniform as you try to close. I found that due to the thickness of some umbrellas that they tend to bunch up. You may have to ruffle the thing a little too so it will fold right. The bigger thicker umbrellas tend to like to get bunched up some. I think I got that tip from Martha Stewart, I need to work more during the lunch time hours. LOL
