Loose Miranda lens caps

I’d like to share here a tip I got from a fellow mirandacollectors group member.

With age and use, the metal push-on lens caps on Miranda and some Soligor lenses wear out and loosen to the extent that they drop off by itself. Here’s one cure for the problem:

  • Carefully prise out the plastic insert from the cap.
  • Put one layer of electrical tape or similar (I used heavy black duct tape) to the outer side of the plastic, and trim to width.
  • Slip the insert back to lens cap.
  • Check the lens cap fit to the lens: It should go on and stay on like a new cap.
