    How do you collapse a reflector?

    Hi all,
    I know this is kind of a dumb question, but I bought one of these reflectors http://www.amvona.com/v7/shop/?page=...roduct_id=1619. I got it out of the carrying case and it jumped out. I couldn't collapse it to its original shape, any ideas?
    The reflector is 40inches x 60 inches, so it's kinda big and it's sitting on my couch now.
    Thanks,
    Sofia

    Hold it horizontal to your body.
    Put your left hand on the upper left corner.
    Put your right hand on the lower right corner.
    Now, twist the two corners together, like they were going to meet in the middle (think of a figure 8).
    At the same time, gently squeeze it towards the center.
    There's no light at the end of this tunnel.

    What is a
    'woodsac'?

    Ah these kinds of things are so tricky to figure out how to collapse for the first time. You pretty much just want to try twisting it and folding it every way you can until you finally get it right. Basically the motion is you twist the disc and it folds in on itself. It's really hard to explain, but once you've done it a few times you get the hang of it.
