Denny,

I just wrapped the bells of my Leupold scope with ½” wide Velcro, the fuzzy half.velcro_scope_1

I then slid the covers on and they fit so nice and tightly on the bells now. I will still do the elastic bands but to tell you the truth they really aren’t needed now.

I will send pics here in a little while but the fuzzy half of the Velcro sure makes them fit snuggly. That would also keep dust from building up under the cover. At the range or good weather hunting, they still just slide right off when pulled on.
