Question about Simmons Outdoor Yardage Master 801445 Rangefinder

1 Answer

Broken lenses Both plastic lenses on the end away from your face have got the 4 tabs broke off. The tabs are to hold the lens in place to seal against dust.The lenses are still in the finder but are loose. The finder still works fine but I don't think letting dust in is a good idea. What would happen if I split the finder myself & glued the lenses back in position? I don't know how long the lenses have been loose because I just bought it off ebay. The seller doesn't seem to want to do anything about it.Thank you,Terry

I hate to tell you that I have the same problem but only one, no solution yet!!! Mine doesn't really work fine... When you look inside it is like blue... it actually makes the LED much easier to read but in low lite situations it makes it impossible to use...

Good Luck..

How do I open up a Rank Aldis 2000 Slide Projector to replace a bulb and free a jammed slide?

1. Prepare to turn projector upside down.
2. Unscrew & remove focusing lens.
3. Turn projector upside down & look from the base face of the projector towards the lens aperture - for a slot just under the lid lip. There is a black tab which can be slid with a screwdriver away from the slide path.
4. There's a similar slot at the back under the lid lip and the end of the row of vent holes.
5. After sliding these, the lid is loose - so while holding the lid in place, turn the projector back over onto its feet.
6. The lid now simply lifts off - first at the slides side, hinging away and then off.

How to Repair Ray-Ban Sunglasses. ?Replace a lost or missing screw in your...

How to Repair Ray-Ban Sunglasses.<br />&bull;Replace a lost or missing screw in your Ray-Ban sunglasses with a small piece of wire. Push the earpiece back into place on the sunglasses and gently wiggle a small piece of wire through the screw hole. Pull the wire through the opposite end and push it back through. Push the wire through at least three times and use your pliers to twist together the ends.<br />Fill a small bowl with warm water and set your sunglasses in it. This is a quick trick for fixing loose frames. The warm water heats up the frames, making it possible to reshape the glasses yourself. Remove the sunglasses after a few minutes and gently bend the frames.<br />Hold the Ray-Ban sunglasses in one hand to replace a lens that popped out. Turn the sunglasses over, so that the front faces down and place the lens onto the back. Gently press down with your other hand, until the lens pops back into place.<br />Use an eyeglass repair kit to replace any missing screws. The kits come with several small screws and a tiny screwdriver. Line up the screw to the proper hole and gently screw into place. If the screw won't go in, it means that your screw hole is stripped and you need to use the wire method.<br />Seal broken parts with instant glue. For broken frames, apply a thin layer of glue to one side and push the broken piece back into place. Hold until the glue dries. Instant glue also fixes lenses for wireless frames. Apply a layer of glue to the bottom of the top piece and push the lens in place.

Should I purchase a sunglasses with a glass lens?

Well, here are some facts about glass lenses that might help you reach a better decision.Glass is the only lens material that can be made into 100% optically correct sunglasses. For true vision, there is no comparison between glass and other lens materials.
Glass does not flex or compress. Whenever lenses are placed into an eyewear frame, they are held in place by pressure of some kind. Plastic lenses flex and that creates distortion; but that cannot happen with glass lenses.
Glass does not expand or contract in heat and cold in a significant way. No matter what the temperature outside, 100% optically correct sunglasses will remain 100% optically correct.
Glass is the hardest material, and the most scratch-resistant. Glass is the most durable, and longest-lasting sunglass lens material. However, it is not scratch proof. Sand can scratch glass, but it requires serious effort or trauma to scratch glass lenses.
Technology has made it possible to create a very lightweight glass lens. Today, it can be difficult to tell the difference between glass and plastic, even when holding a pair with glass lenses in one hand and a pair with plastic in the other hand. (Of course, the difference is clear when looking through the lenses. But the weight of the lens is no longer a dead giveaway as to which is which.)

The danger of shattering was once one of the major disadvantages of glass lenses. However, all glass lenses pass the "Drop Ball Test" for impact resistance - the same test that is administered to polycarbonate and CR-39 lenses. When today's polarized lenses tend to break in a similar pattern as a car windshield. The broken pieces of glass mostly stick to the polarizing film that is inside the lens.
These Spotters had been stepped on by the customer. Notice that the broken lens has retained its original curvature. The broken lens pieces were still so tightly held by the frame that we had to smash the broken lens out of the frame with a hammer (it took more than a few smacks, too!). This isn't to say in any way that glass lenses are equivalent to safety glasses. However, polarized glass lenses are much, much less likely to cause injuries today than they ever have been in the past.

I need to get the front panel off how do i do

Pull off the two speaker grills. They will seem like they are going to break but they'll snap out. You'll then see the 8 screws that hold the plastic lower facing in place. (4 on each side) Once you remove the facing, you can see the 4-6 screws that attach the screen assembly at the bottom of the screen. Once you've removed them, you simply place a hand along the left anf right edge of the screen assembly and pull up. This will pull the screen assembly off the plastice hooks inside the cabinet that hold the screen assy. in place. You can now clean the mirror and lens assys. You can use windex on the mirror but many projection TVs have plastic lenses so use a prepared solution from a video store or make your own with luke warm water and a couple drops of dish washing liquid. Don't get the lens too wet, so that water drips onto other parts of the TV.

Chevrolet Equinox how to change the head light

IF it's the headlight's light bulb you want to access to pull out old bulb and install new bulb, here it is:
You know where the 3 bolts that secure the headlight body on the frame, also pull out the 4 black plastic clips that holds the grille-it's located on the top grille brackets (it's close to the top radiator area)
When you pull out the clips, gently pull the grille away from the top frame, then pull the headlight body away carefully to allow your hand to gain access behind the grille/headlamp body, find the wire that connects to the headlight bulb, use your fingers to feel the plastic 'collar ring' around the socket and twist it counterclockwise (just like unscrewing a lid off the jar) and pull the socket out with the bulb.
This space is tight for your fingers so it takes patient to get the job done.

IF it's the ENTIRE headlight body you want to remove it off the equinox (since you mentioned you've removed the 3 screws) there's one more that still holds it down is the black plastic tab that's only accessible inside the fender! So to gain access under the fender, remove the plastic wheelwell liner part located underneath the front-left fender (driver's side) there's a small screw and few plastic clips you'll need to remove it to move the wheelliner liner aside to locate that headlight body's plastic tab on the fender frame, use a plier to 'unlock' the tab out of the hole.

Replace tail light bulb

The process for changing the tail light bulbs for a 2002 New Beetle in my case a TDI is relatively simple. To remove the lense and gain access to the bulbs you first need to release the lense holder from inside the trunk by completely unscrewing the large plastic wing nut that is under a round plastic panel that's located almost directly behind the rear brake light lense. To gain access to the plastic wing nut remove the round panel by gently prying it off. After this is done you release the lense by using something flat like a dinner table knife to pry and release the clip that holds the lense in place. Locating the clip: The rear fender has two seams that end at the light lense, the inboard seam (the one closest to the hatch)is where you want to insert the table knife to pry the metal clip that holds the lens in place. Gently and carefully insert the knife blade directly at the seam and pry upward to release the lense. Once the clip releases pull the lens the rest of the way and remove the bulbs by turning the bulb holder sockets couter-clockwise. After this is done remove bulbs by slightly pushing down on the bulb and turning it counter-clockwise. The reinstall is reverse of the removal the procedure.When re-installing take care to clock the lense where the metal clip and the lense protrusions end up in the same position as before. Note: you may need to assist sliding the lens retaining clip in with the knife when reinstalling! Good luck
