Hood won't stay on
1 month ago

I have a Nikon HS-4 hood that I am trying to attach to a Nikon 105mm F2.5 lens. This hood is supposed to be made for this lens. But it won't stay on. There is a threaded ring on the inside of the hood with two tabs attached to it. It seems like the hood can be attached by either: 1) compressing the ring and snapping it into place, or 2) threading the ring.

Both ways, the hood won't stay on securely. A slight tap and it falls off. I think the gap in the ring is a problem. I can't imagine a Nikon designer not considering the reliability of this design. Perhaps some parts are missing. But comparing pictures of other hoods of this same model doesn't indicate that my hood has any missing parts. Does anyone have any ideas?
