Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! That lip is the Filter Ring and Fixated Lens Hoods of Camera Lenses. In regard to a lip within the Universal Lens Cap, no. There is no lip. We purposefully included a exterior-protruding circle in the middle of the ULC, acting as a shock-absorbent barrier incase the lens falls glass first onto concrete. We intentionally created the ULC to be only millimeters away from the front glass and included 8 bumpers and the protruding circle to act as a ‘cushion’ for the shape and glass of any lens.Last updated:
What if there is dirt on the inside (of the ULC) and that bit hugs the front of the glass very tightly?
The ULC does not come into contact with the front glass unless intentionally pressed to touch the glass or is taking a blow from dropping the lens. Dirt, by default, does not come with your packaged ULC. If dirt, fine sand or debris enters in the inside of the ULC, there is no need to worry. We’ve already infused a special coating into the material of the ULC, making it so any collected finely grained silent killers (dirt, sand, debris, etc.) can be washed off and dried, looking brand new, within seconds.Last updated:
This question has been asked a lot and seeing that there are many photographers shooing on vintage cameras and smaller lenses, as well as smaller range finder cameras, we’re definitely taking this idea back to the drawing board and seeing what we can do with it! :)Last updated:
Have you tried using this lens cap with any lenses that have a twist-on lens hood? E.g. with the lens hood on and reversed (my usual transit arrangement)? I’d be worried that this would catch on the lip of the hood and make it a pain to remove.
Yes we have! We have stretch the ULC over Lens Hoods both ways and it works just fine! Not a pain to remove and it doesn’t catch the lip of the hood!Last updated:
When the ULC is mounted on the lens (stretched onto the lens), what prevents it from touching the glass if the middle of the ULC is pushed into the lens? It would be a problem with the Nikon 14-24, because of the large curvature on this lens.
With the Nikon 14-24, what prevents the ULC from touching the glass is the uniquely shaped fixated lens hood. Nothing prevents the ULC from touching the front glass except for the lens’ filter filter ring or fixated lens hoods. We purposefully included a protruding circle in the middle of the ULC, acting as a shock-absorbent barrier incase the lens falls glass first onto concrete. In no way do we state that the ULC is SHOCK-PROOF or DROP-PROOF but it is SHOCK-ABSORBENT in the sense that is does absorb shock and increase the chances of lenses working after having been dropped. Our intention was to create a ‘cushion’ for the shape and glass of any lens and it still works just fine for a large curvature shaped lens like the Nikon 14-24!Last updated:
I’m a stickler about Traditional Lens Caps, so what if I don’t lose my TLC? What benefit does the ULC provide?
Great question! The ULC:
1. Provides greater aesthetic-, glass- and internal-protection to lenses.
2. Can stretch OVER the TLC creating a SUPER LENS CAP.
3. Ensures the TLC never falls off.

Nope! In fact, photographers have used the ULC as ways to better insulate their lenses, substitute the velcro walls for ULCs, and layer on multiple ULCs creating bumpers from other camera gear! If anything, it creates more room in your bag while increasing padding and protection for your gear.Last updated:
