Either order from Pentax or take the screw from the other eyepiece and take it to a hardware store and match it up.

SOURCE: I have an old tasco 7x-15x35 zoom binocular.

You can't.

Tasco optical products are very cheaply made items, usually bought direct from whichever factory already makes the same or a similar model and then Tasco have their badges and packaging added.

They are consumer grade models which are not designed with longevity or repairs in mind; they're worth little when new and almost without value as used items.

The only repairs which can be done are by Tasco themselves whilst their products are under warranty. Except for the most minor of repairs, a warranty claim will simply involve exchanging the faulty item for a new one as any labour expended in repairs will often cost Tasco more than the wholesale price of a new unit.

Your only fixes are to live with the missing eyecup; to visit a binocular repair shop (not exactly commonplace) and see if you can buy an eyecup which can be adapted by yourself to fit; or to replace yours with another pair. You'll usually find that there are plenty for free on your local FreeCycle or Freegle group but they'll often have the even worse fault of a broken eyepiece yoke. But the price is right so it doesn't really matter if you have to collect five or six pairs before getting a good pair...

With all due respect, 7x-15x35 are going to be optically atrocious, so replacing your current pair is not a bad idea.

You'll need to measure your eyepiece in "mm". Also determine if your eyepiece has an outer ring the eyepiece will slip over. You can find eyecups/guards on Ebay. Search under Binocular Eyecup or Binocular Eye Guard. There are also eyecups under "rubber eyecups/rubber eyeguards" but alot of these are for Microscopes and may not fit. You will need to pay close attention to the mounting type and measurements.

Right & left eye does not focus together. They appear to be @ two different powers


Your binoculars either have a bent or broken yoke assembly (the bit which carries the eyepieces) or one or more prisms have came unseated.

The first repair involves replacing the entire yoke assembly: the part is expensive in comparison to the retail cost of a new pair of binoculars and with labour charges on top is not usually a cost-effective repair except on really high end models at prices far higher than yours which can be completely replaced for under GBP£115.

The second repair is straightforward and fairly quick for anyone with the right collimation equipment, but the screw(s) need to be secured with thread-locking liquid afterwards.

I hope you manage to use this information to fix your binoculars or at least that it assists you to choose your next course of action. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

Broken eyepiece, 1940s vintage 7x50 individual focus binocular. Need hard rubber or bakelite replacements. eyepiece threads onto brass adapter ring (1 3/16in outside, 7/8in inside)


Here in Melbourne, Australia I make these for people who need them. I also have a reasonable amount of stock generic ones. The question is not so much the size of the ring, but the thread size, the depth of the eyecup (depends upon the magnification) which sets your eye at the correct distance behind the eyepiece (eye relief) and the size of the central hole to suit the size of the eye lens. There would be other small engineering companies that could make one for you out of delrin.

Lost Nikon Travelite ex eye piece


I'm supposing by eyepiece you mean the rubber or plastic eyecup. The eyepiece is the whole unit that contains the lens. Nikon has a service center in many countries. If you have one in your country then they can order the part. I have ordered from Nikon. They find the part number if you tell them your model and can email you an order form. Alternately Binoculars.com is very good to deal with as is Adorama Camera in New York. Both will sell internationally.
