The filter chamber (UFC-Base) is the core part, which up to now does accept three different kinds of filter sliders for 50,8mm,  50mm round and 50x50 mm filters. The filter sliders are kept in place by means of an adjustable magnet, to adjust the retaining force and to assure exact repositioning of the filter for repeatable usage of flats.
