Title
(EN) PIVOTING LENS COVERS FOR RIFLESCOPES AND THE LIKE
(FR) CACHE-LENTILLE PIVOTANT POUR LUNETTE DE VISEE POUR CARABINE ET ANALOGUES
Abstract
(EN) A lens cover 500 includes a cap 530 adapted to be pivotably supported on an optical device 100. A stop 580 may be positioned to interfere with spring-driven movement of the cap and to brake the cap at an intermediate position between closed and open positions thereof. The cap may then be manually moved to the fully open position, where it may be releasably retained by optional detent structure 588, 589. A mounting ring assembly 510 of the lens cover may include a first threaded ring member 610 for attachment to the optical device and a second ring member 620 rotatably coupled to the first ring member for facilitating alignment of a hinge 520 that pivotably attaches the cap to the second ring member, relative to the optical device 100. Magnets 660, 668 may be included to retain the cap in the closed position. The mounting ring assembly and cap may be formed of aluminum or another metal for durability and fit.
(FR) L'invention concerne un cache-lentille (500), qui comprend une coiffe (530) conçue pour se fixer de manière pivotante sur un dispositif optique (100). Une butée (580) peut être positionnée de façon à entraver un mouvement à ressort de la coiffe et freiner cette dernière à une position intermédiaire située entre une position fermée et une position ouverte. La coiffe peut ensuite être déplacée manuellement vers la position d'ouverture complète où elle peut être retenue de manière libérable par une structure d'arrêt facultative (588, 589). Un ensemble anneau de montage (510) du cache-lentille peut comprendre un premier élément d'anneau fileté (610) destiné à se fixer au dispositif optique; et un second élément d'anneau (620) articulé au premier élément d'anneau pour faciliter l'alignement d'une charnière (520) qui réunit par articulation la coiffe et le second élément d'anneau, relativement au dispositif optique (100). Des aimants (660, 668) peuvent être ajoutés pour retenir la coiffe dans la position fermée. L'ensemble anneau de montage et la coiffe peuvent être réalisés en aluminium ou dans un autre métal en vue de leur conférer durabilité et aptitude.
