These terrible (Nikon should be embarrassed) lens hoods are also out of stock at on-line dealers. Basically there is not replacement for this lens hood.

This is a snap-on hood, how does one rotate it until a click is heard? The one that I have snaps on to front lip of the 55-300mm lens, afterwards it rotates freely around the lens.

Question

What other hood can I use to replace the HB-57?

It is well known that this hood is horrible, very fragile and expensive. Surely the nikon lens it is made for, the 55-300, is compatible with some other lens hood?

Question

I cannot find the HB-57 available from any source in North America. When will the part ship to American retailers?

I find the poor quality of this part and the lack of support for the users to be a blemish on the Nikon reputation. Looking for a response that you have a plan to quickly resolve the issue.

Question

What screw-on hood will work with the 55-300mm (58mm) lens? I would think that any screw-on hood for a 55mm lens with 58mm threads should work.

Question

how to repair the HB-57 lens hood

The mounting ring became detached from the lens hood. I thought that I had all of the parts, but it appears that I am missing a spring clip that was inside of the hood lens mounting ring. Now, I cannot attach the hood lens to the lens (NIKKOR 55-300 MM) If there is a spring clip that is part of this assembly, is the spring clip an available replacement part?
