How's yours? I just got an eBay delivery of a new hood for my 16-85mm. The HB-39 type.

The old one had a bad habit of falling off. In parking lots, on athletic fields. It simply wouldn't click in. Rather than pay $30 for a new one, I dabbed a small drop of epoxy on the two 'cam lobes' which engage the lens. It worked for about a week.

I have three other Nikon lenses and the hoods have a solid engagement with the lens. Have other folks had my experience with a hood gone bad?
