Thanks for your response. I use gels all the time with my speedlites but was looking for a solution for using them with my Einsteins when using a softbox. Einsteins have a frosted glass dome over the flashtubes which should prevent the gels from touching the flash tubes.

That might work fine but I would be wary of doing that if I was using the modeling light.

I have a simple suggestion.  PCB has a great customer relations department.  Why don't you phone them up or send them an email and ask what they recommend?
