I just received an order of MCEs and 26.5 mm Carclo optics. I had ordered the optic holders with legs and I am not sure that is what I received. Per this link legs appear to be the smaller diameter extensions off the posts.

My holder comes with the posts but no smaller diameter extensions.

Am I correct in thinking the smaller diameters are the legs?

The specific holder I ordered is #10467 but what I think I received are the 10438.

Thanks one and all.

Yep - the legs are the smaller diameter extension of the posts. I have 26,5mm holders with legs, but they are not as long as the picture you link to.

If you have a holder with legs, the 4 legs goes into 4 of the 6 holes around the edge of the star board of your LED. If you don't have legs, the holder can "slide around" a little, making alignment of the LED a little trickier.

Hope that helps.
