Supplied in pairs, these soft rubber objective lens caps are an ideal replacement for lost covers.

Fit binoculars with an outer diameter of 48-50mm (note this is not the objective lens size, but the actual diameter of the binoculars).

The soft rubber stretches and provides a good firm fit. The retaining ring ensures that they are not lost!

See "Box Photo" link below for an image of them fitted to a pair of Leupold 8x42 binoculars.

Apparently, these lens caps also fit the Samsung Galaxy Zoom camera/phone.

(We get loads of emails and phone calls asking if we sell lens caps in different sizes, yes we do, just click on the "Accessories" button above, the are all about half way down the page)

Hi there,

I have a pair of Kronos 20x60 binoculars, and I was wondering if you can supply rubber lens caps to fit their 75mm overall diameter?

Best regards,

Tom

28/09/2009 14:21:55
Unfortunately, the short answer is no.

I have had a look through various price lists this morning, and none of our suppliers make lens caps of such a size.

Someone, somewhere must make them, but at this time, we can not find anyone that does.

We would not charge any extra for shipping to Ireland.

The lens caps weigh next to nothing, so the extra it cost us will only be minimal.

Hi

could you tell me if rubber lens caps would fit bushnell 10 x 42 natureviews ?

eebc - Chris.
29/10/2009 16:15:41
I have just tried to try the lens caps on a pair of Bushnell Natureview that we have in stock, unfortunately, I discovered we do not have any of the lens caps in stock!

They should fit, but it will probably be a tight fit as the Bushnell have lens caps that are 53mm

We should be getting some more within the next week or two. When they arrive, I will try them on the binoculars and drop you an email.

UPDATE 11/11/09 - These lens caps will not fit the Bushnell Natureview binoculars.

I have a pair of Night Detective binoculars with a 48mm diameter lens. As these rubber caps range from 48-52mm can you advise me on whether they will be a tight enough fit?

eebc - Chris
02/06/2010 13:16:35
Without trying them it is impossible to tell for sure, but I would think that they will be ok.

They have a good secure fit on the Visionary binoculars which are about 48mm.

If your binoculars are rubber covered, they tend to grip a little better than smooth metal/plastic finished ones.

eebc - Jamie

Yes, they can be replaced and we even have them in stock.

They are £13.50 and are in Olivon packaging, but are identical to the Visionary ones and fit the Wetland perfectly.

We do not have them listed on our website, so either give us a call or Click Here to buy on line.

Does anyone know if these would fit the Canon 10x30 IS binoculars (the binocular aperture is approx 46mm)?

eebc - Chris.
12/10/2010 11:07:12
If they are 46mm or slightly larger, these lens caps should fit, if it is slightly smaller, they would probably be too loose.

The only definitive way would to to try them to see if they fit.

Thank you for your enquiry.

The only lens caps we have in stock that will fit (I have just tried them on a pair of Natureview) are the Opticron 53-55 Rubber Lens Caps

thanks

eebc - Chris
06/03/2011 13:55:54
We do not stock the H2O series so I can not try the lens caps on a pair to see.

Chances are they will fit, but the only way to tell for sure is to try them. They do fit on to quite a few x42 binoculars, we have tried them on several binoculars in stock (Leupold, Visionary, Opticron, Swift) and they tend to fit most of them quite well.

John Snell
23/04/2011 17:26:18
I have a pair of Nikon Monarch 8x42 and for the price are brilliant. They are let down by the poor quality caps, the eye lens covers fell apart within weeks and now one of the others has failed. The large diameter is 52mm and the small diameter 40mm but tapered. Do you have products that will cater for both ends!!!??
Regards
John

eebc - Chris
23/04/2011 18:00:38
These lens caps should be ok for the objective (front) lenses.

We do not have an equivalent for the eyepieces, the only thing we have is an Opticron Rainguard which loosely sits over both eyepices at the same time.

Will these fit canon 10x30is binos? If not do you have any lens caps that will?

eebc - Chris
28/04/2011 17:58:06
We no longer sell Canon stabilised binoculars so can not try a pair on the binoculars to see if they fit.

I would guess (and it is only a guess), that they would be too big for the Canons. They tend to fit x40 or x42 binoculars quite well, the Canon x30 is a lot smaller.

These are the smallest lens caps we carry in stock, the best bet would be to get some from Canons spare parts department.

I have a pair of 8x40 Optolyth Alpin Classic binoculars which have no objective lens caps. The outer diameter is 48-49mm and was wondering if the 48-52 lens caps would be a little loose. Your help would be appreciated.
Thanks

eebc - Chris
09/05/2011 10:04:46
The should be OK, we have fitted them to binoculars before which are around 48mm without any problems.

Binoculars at the larger end of the size range, tend to rely on the soft rubber of the lens cap stretching.

Ian Birch
12/05/2011 20:49:36
The lens caps 48-52mm I ordered for my Optolyth Alpin Classic 8x40 binoculars are excellent, they fit perfectly and snug without any slipping off. Thanks for your help.

Ken

eebc - Chris
05/08/2011 09:12:26
The lens caps we stock are for sizes 48-52, 53-55, 56-62.

I would think your 8x32 would be smaller than any of those above.

The make/model you specify seems to be a current model, your supplier will be able to order you a spare set of lens caps.

Thanks and regards
Phil Griffiths

eebc - Jamie
10/12/2011 09:11:53
We do not have any Swift Audubons to actually try the lens caps on, if they are 52mm or slightly less then these lens caps should do the job. If they are just over 52mm, then the larger size would be an easier fit.

The only way to know for sure would be to try the lens cap on and see.

Kayn
25/01/2012 12:42:20
Would these fit opticron discovery 8x42? Also is £10 the price of one lens cap or a pair?

Best regards,

eebc - Chris
25/01/2012 13:20:28
Thank you for your enquiry, we do not stock the Discovery so can not try a pair on the binoculars to be sure. They do fit the Oregon model, which is about the same size on the front, but the only well to tell for sure would be to try them.

The price is for a pair.

Barrie
04/09/2012 19:36:24
Do you stock covers that would fit 56mm objective lens, OD of binoculars is 62mm.

eebc - Jamie
10/04/2012 09:13:06
Thank you for your enquiry.

The largest we have is the Opticron Rubber Lens Caps 56-60mm, but whilst these lens caps do stretch, will probably be just a little too small for your binoculars.

We do not have any spare parts for Swift binoculars.

I would try Pyser SGI they were the importers for years and still offer a repair service for Swift equipment.

The Swift Audubon MkII must have been discontinued a good 20 years ago, if Pyser do not have any, I doubt you will find any.

Unfortunately, we do not have any of the Olympus binoculars to try these lens caps on. The only way to tell would be to try them.

Hi, I have a set of Nikon Monarch 8x36 binoculars which have an external
objective dia. of about 46mm. Obviously, I have already lost one of the
loose plug-in lens covers supplied! Will the Opticron 48-52 still grip at this slightly smaller size?

eebc - Jamie
06/03/2013 09:19:29
Thanks for your enquiry.

48mm really is the smallest these lens caps will cling-on to. Unfortunately, these are the smallest lens caps we can currently obtain.

We have had customers report that they have successfully modified these lens caps by padding them out with bits of old rubber (one chap cut off the actual retaining ring and used that as padding), but that seems like a lot of hassle to me!

John Squire

eebc - Chris
03/04/2013 16:58:24
Thank you for your enquiry.

Unfortunately, we no longer stock Canon binoculars so can not try the lens caps on a pair, but I doubt that they will fit, I would think they would be too large for the binoculars.

We have had quite a few customers modify the lens caps by inserting a bit of padding, measure the outside diameter of the binoculars, the lens caps will fit binoculars 48mm in diameter, someone used the actual retaining strap and glued it in the lens caps which took a couple of millimetres off and allowed them to fit some smaller binoculars.

We do not stock the binoculars you mention so can not try them, but the ones shown on this page may fit (they tend to fit most x42 binoculars).

If you are anywhere near Lincoln, just pop them in sometime and we will try these and the next size up to see which ones fit best.

Hello - I have an older [25yrs] Opticron Binocular Dioptron 10x50 Field 5deg. Looking to replace both end caps which have a stamp showing 61 which is the outer diameter of the objective lens case. Looking to replace as I have lost a cover. The end of the outer case is rubberised so may accept a 60mm cap. Is there any solution.

The eye piece relief caps are soft and long enough [16mm]to stop most external light but could be better with a shape which shields the outer edge arround each eye -again is there a solution

eebc - Jamie
06/09/2013 14:30:52
We sold quite a number of the Dioptron binoculars, good binoculars.

The larger rubber lens caps may fit, the largest is the Opticron 56-60mm Lens Caps

As for the eyepieces, unfortunately there is currently nothing available, about 10 years or so ago, there were "winged" eyecups, I think they would probably have been too big, but these are no longer available. I did speak to one chap who managed to fabricate himself something similar out of an old bike inner tube!

We do not stock any Barska products, the Opticron 56-60mm one may fit, but as we do not stock your binoculars can not try them on here to judge fit.

Pop the binoculars in sometime and we will try the lens caps on, alternatively if you order an pair and they do not fit, just send them back for exchange or refund.

It would either be these lens caps or the next size up (the 53-55mm ones), we do not stock the PowerView binoculars so can not try the two together to see which is the best fit.

All we have for the eyepiece end is Rainguards

If you order and they are the wrong size, exchanging them for the next size up or down is no problem.

eebc - Chris
04/06/2014 21:43:48
Opticron recently changed the product specifications, but kept the same part number and same bar-code number.

They were 48-52mm, but now there is two separate products: 48-50mm and 50-52mm.

I would think these would fit your Nikon binoculars, but the only well to tell for sure would be to try them. If they do not fit you could always return them for a refund or the next size up, or if you are anywhere near Lincoln bring your binoculars in and we will try this and the next size up to see which fits best.

Binocular cases - we do not currently stock any binocular cases, we can get the Zeiss ones, prices start around £100 for a hard leather case.

eebc - Jamie
16/08/2014 11:31:33
As an educated guess, I would go for the 52-53mm ones.

Unfortunately, as we do not have a pair of your binoculars to actually try the lens caps on, we can not be sure, but if they are too loose, they can always be returned for the smaller ones.

We should have some lens caps for the objective lens, we have the Opticron rubber lens caps in all sizes from 48 to 62 mm currently in stock.

The best we can do for the eyepiece end would be a rainguard, one of the Opticron Rainguards would probably fit.

13/01/2016 18:01:38
Sorry I can not give you a definite answer - we do not stock the binoculars you have, so can not try a few pairs of lens caps to see which is the best fit.

Chances are it will be either these, or the next size up (50-52mm). Pop a ruler across the objective lens and try and measure it. We can always swap the lens caps for the next size up or down if necessary.

If you are anywhere near Lincoln, bring the binoculars in, we usually have the full range of lens caps in stock.

Shipping on 2 pairs, would not be much different to that for one pair, in which case shipping would add £2.00

Delivery to most of Europe seems to take about a week. Shipping would be by Airmail.

We have sold a number of these lens caps for Nikon Monarch binoculars, so am fairly confident that they should fit. If they do not we can always swap them for the next size up or down.

The eyecup assembly would have to be supplied from Nikon or via a Nikon dealer. Any Nikon should be able to order the spares for you.

We do not have any dealings with Celestron, so can not supply the original ones which clip on to the binoculars. Any Celestron dealer will be able to order then as spare parts.

The nearest equivalents we have would be the Opticron 50-52mm lens caps.

One of the larger sizes of rubber lens caps should fit:

Opticron 58-60mm Lens Caps
Opticron 60-62mm Lens Caps

Simply measure across an objective lens, including the actual casing. We can easily swap them for the next size up or down, if you get the wrong size.

Hi,need rubber eye pices 40 to 42mm with the 'loop', as per the picture, to suit my Nikon Prostaff 7, binoculars.
Do you have any?
The objective, front one's bought a while back are great.
Appreciate your assistance,
Regards
Graham Biddulph

We do have smaller lens caps in stock.

Here is a link to the Opticron 40-42mm Lens Caps the other option would be a Rainguard but it would require a little padding with something (a bit of rubber/felt).

Hi, which size replacement lens caps would be suitable for Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 8x42?

Thanks

Thank you for your inquiry.

As we do not stock the model of Bushnell you mention, we can not literally try a few pairs on to see which fits best.

I would guess either the 50-52mm ones or the next size up, the 52-53mm.

Pop a ruler across the objective lens and try and measure them. We can always swap lens caps for the next size up/down if you get the wrong ones.
