The gift of knowledge keeps on giving I was searching for a replacement hood when I came across your post. Couldn't help but laugh when it clicked into place. The key is of course to hold the barrel, otherwise applying further force seems unwise. And yes, I had carefully consulted the User Guide and saw the advice that it would click. So, thank you.

Um - if you can hold the barrel, that would imply that you're working with the camera turned on. The manual (page 17) wants the camera off when you do this. and demonstrates a way to hold the hood so it's not deformed when you attach/remove.  It's not hard to remove if you hold it correctly, but it holds on very tightly if you twist it.
