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.
