Thread: Swarovski Flip Covers - Problem

    Swarovski Flip Covers - Problem

    I have a 2.5-15x56 Z6i - I bought the Swarovski original flip up cover for it; however the rear ocular cover just will not keep closed. Any hints or tips? It's driving me crazy.

    I have tried the the slot in all different positions including on the focus adjuster line and nothing will get it to have a solid click. I have also tried different screw pressures...

    It has a solid click off the scope but as soon as its fitted it won't work.

    Ideas?!?

    Not had a problem with any of mine. Have you tried fitting them closed to see if that makes a difference? Perhaps you're fitting it too far onto the focus ring?

    I'll give it a go AJ, I'll try anything short of sending it back to Austria. Cheers

    Get the newer magnetic version, much better than the older clip shut versions

    Have you tried removing the o ring and rubbing a little washing up liquid on your fingers around the o ring then putting back on ?

    ive never had a problem with them opening or closing

    Contacted them earlier and they said send them back to Austria. What all do I need to put in with it? Name, address, receipts? Should save me £75 on a new magnetic one. They are only about 2-3 months old.

    I hoped led someone would say hey would send magnetic ones, to be honest I'm perfectly happy with the front one.

    Chees lads - some group.
