SOURCE: Nikon Replacement Eyecups

What an excellent glass you have. Nikon in your country should have a service center. I have had them get me a replacement set for a 7x50IF SP WP which is not a common model. They emailed me an order form and I emailed it back. They were not in stock so it takes about 6 to 8 weeks. May I suggest you order a back up set when you do.
If they aren't too helpful (they needed a shove) try Binoculars.com or Adorama Camera in new York. They will also ship internationally.

SOURCE: Eyecups are sticking on my Swift ultra light binoculars

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.

I have an old tasco 7x-15x35 zoom binocular. model #100. I lost the right rubber eye cup. Where can I purchase a replacement from........Thanks


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.

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.
