Loose hinge _ Bushnell small binocs - 8 x 21; 392 FT at 1000 Yds.

I have a pair of small bushnell binoculars I have had for several years. They have double hinges, are compact and very handy.
I tried to use them recently and the right hinge is completely without tension. The right side just flops around.
When I tried to hold the right side in place, I could not get the images to merge. I am afraid the binoculars have fallen and not only is the hinge loose, but the two sides are no longer in alignment.
How hard is this to repair? Is it expensive to have done?
I don't think these were expensive and don't want to go overboard, but if there is a simply mechnical fix, I would do it. The optics, etc. are not damaged.
Numbers on the inside look like "13-2014 MW 001 AG" They were made in China.
Any schematics available?
Thank you.

Bushnells are inexpensive binoculars. A repair would cost more than a new one. If they are out of alignment to have them collimated would take time and that translates to expense. Its not something that can be done at home without a collimator. New ones similar to yours can be found online for between twenty to forty US dollars. Binoculars today can be bought much cheaper than a few years ago. If you are happy with the use you have had from your Bushnells an update won't break the bank.

The right hand lens came loose and fell off. Where can I buy a replacement?


You can't get a replacement part yourself, the only fix is to return the binoculars to Bushnell for repair.

If you're in the USA or Canada then your binoculars will be covered by Bushnell's Limited Lifetime Warranty; this applies only to the original purchaser and excludes misuse or any evidence of unauthorised repair attempts. If the warranty does not apply then you will still need to send the product back to Bushnell for a repair estimate.

If you are outside north America, then warranties and repair processes may be different and you'll need to contact the Bushnell office for your part of the world.

Note that as your binoculars are relatively cheap and can be purchased new for US $123.39 it may be better to sell yours on an auction site for spare parts and purchase a new pair. If you were not the original purchaser you then get the benefit of not only a brand new pair of binoculars, but the Limited Lifetime Warranty would also give you future protection.

I hope that my reply has been of assistance, if so please take a moment to rate my answer.

Bushnell insta-focus mechanism gets stuck.


they were famous for that, because the screwpin that holds the eyepice shaft is metal and the groove that it rides in is plastic, and eventually gets jammed....look where you put your fingers to adjust eyepieces. should be small metal plate in center of hinge(sometimes with bushnell logo) that will simply pry off by using small screw driver,and now you will be able to see if the screw is loose or damaged. good luck...larry@reichinstruments.com

Hi - This called the diopter adjustment which compensates for small differences in focus between the left & right eyes.

See the following web page for adjusting :

Double vision


The distance between the centers of the eyepieces of your binocular must be the same as the distance between your pupils. This distance is adjusted as follows: 1. Focus on a distant object. 2. Pivot the two halves of your binocular farther or closer apart until you can see a single unobstructed, circular field of view. Make sure to focus on a distant object when you do this because when you focus on a close object you always see two slightly overlapping circular fields. Your binocular may have a scale on the top, between the eyepieces, to help you remember this setting.
