    Not sure if a commercial one is available but if not a white plastic lid (like a coffee can lid) and piece of bungee will work for most strobes.

    I am using the Intova 2000 strobe & arm. For any of you that have this, there were some issues;

    1. Originally, no diffuser was made for it.......I used several layers of a plastic white grocery bag/rubber band to hold it on, which worked nice. But a diffuser is now available. I purchased mine from Photogearfinder via E-Bay. It is listed as Intova ISS 2000 Underwater Strobe Flash Diffuser. Item # 310228532498. $15.00

    2. The tray to attach to your underwater housing and arm of the strobe (came with the strobe) is very simple. Intova has another tray system available now.
    It is a dual handle system listed as: Intova BTD Base Tray w/2 Handles f/Lighting Sys Bracket, (single handle version available too)... available from Adoramacamera on E-Bay for $65.00

    3. The fiber optic cable needed for the strobe had an issue that was a pain in the posterior, the end going to the strobe was open ended.....no real attachment to hold it onto the sensor of the strobe. Literally had to use tape to hold it to the strobe. That has been corrected. I purchased the (revised version) at Hoodsport Dive, but I'm sure it is available elsewhere. PX-25 (make sure the end going to the strobe is not bare.) ($25.00 +/-)
