SOURCE: nikon compact binocular 25 years old. The hinge

Does this pair have two parallel tubes with a bridge in between?
If it does, then removing the caps at the eyepiece end of each hinge will reveal a grub screw. Tightening these will add tension to the hinge and give you the proper feel once more.

How to tighten binocular hinge


Simple solution: Pry or unscrew the cap covering the end of hinge shaft on the rear of the binocs (between the eyepieces). Use a screwdriver that fits snugly in the slot on the end of the shaft & tighten to desired tension. Place a dab of Goop-type cement on the inside of the cap if it was pried off & press it firmly back on the shaft . Helpful hint: Slide a small knife blade (an old dull one you don't use for cutting) under the cap and gently work your way around to pry it off. Note the position of the index numbers before you remove it so you can replace it in the same position.

Loose hinge _ Bushnell small binocs - 8 x 21; 392 FT at 1000 Yds.


Bushnells are inexpensive binoculars. A repair would cost more than a new one. If they are out of alignment to have them collimated would take time and that translates to expense. Its not something that can be done at home without a collimator. New ones similar to yours can be found online for between twenty to forty US dollars. Binoculars today can be bought much cheaper than a few years ago. If you are happy with the use you have had from your Bushnells an update won't break the bank.

Hi Ray:
I have Minolta binoculars with the same issue, I believe that I also have the same Minolta model: 10x40mm, roof mounted prisms, 5.6 degrees, waterproof (WR series) and model number j-b35.

Have you found any solution for the loose center hinge?
