A color frame holds gel or color in the color frame slot of an instrument. It's sole purposes are to provide an easy way of handling color, as well as holding the color steady in front of the instruments. Color frames are usually made out of metal, although some companies are starting to manufacture fireproof cardboard ones for safety reasons. Metal color frames can be very dangerous when dropped from up high.
