The one I currently have, a BS-55, is plastic and the mounting mechanism is very loose & unsatisfying. I have no faith in its ability to stay on the lens!

Did Canon make metal ones that attach strongly? Is there another brand or 3rd party maker that made something like this?

Just looking for a little guidance, thanks!
All you do holmburger with loose FD hoods is dig out the old hard rubber "nubbies" with a small precision flat bladed screwdriver and make some more with some suitable hard black rubber that I cut into circles with a paper punch then cut the circles in half with a craft knife, and using epoxy resin adhesive holding the half circles with tweezers stick them in, I've done it with all my F.D. hoods from time to time, I hope this helps.
