    I have the same problem with my 55mm 1.2 metal lens hood. I wrapped a piece of gaff tape around the rim by one of the bushings, and that tightened it up. Just one piece folded over, not a ring all the way around.

    Look at Adorama and/or B&H.. Both have some harder to find hoods at good prices. Bill Barber

    If you remove the three screws at the back if the hood and remove the chrome bayonet mount you can dig out the old "nubbies" then if you get some hard rubber, I use rubber ball valve washers they use in toilets and cut circles out of them with a single hole paper punch then cut them in half with a craft knife then glue them in with epoxy and replace the mount.
