Eyecups are sticking on my Swift ultra light binoculars

I have a pair of swift ultra light binoculars and have gotten debris in the eyecups.  They are sticking pretty bad and I cant seem to get the debris (mostly plant seeds) out.  Is there a way to remove the eyecups?

The rubber outer ring of the eyecups can be peeled off of the metal ring underneath. This exposes the three tiny screws and their channels that allow the eyecups to move in and out. Clean any debris out of the channels, tighten or replace the screws if necessary, and fit the rubber covers back onto the rings.

Where can I get replacment eyecups for Zeiss 8x56 binoculars.


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.

Wearing glasses with my binoculars


There are no adaptors for this problem.

The Kestrel should have rubber eyecups. They are fairly thick and stiff but these need to be folded over to be used with glasses.

If that isn't working for you you could try this. Some who wear glasses remove the eyecups. The rubber unscrews. The eyecup is then replaced with the rubber from a bicycle inner tube. Stetch the inner tube over where the eyecups were sitting. This can be cut and folded to the right height to allow viewing with your glasses.

Just removing the eyecup and using glasses may result in you scratching your glasses on the metal eyepiece.

Missing eyecup


Do you mean the Swift Audubon 8.5x44? If so, for the new model 820 contact Swift Sports Optics. If it's the older model 804 ask around in the forums such as Cloudy Nights. The new model 820 is rubber coated. The old models have a grey crinkle finish.
