How To Use Your ScopeShield

The ScopeShield™ scope cover is a simple, but effective device. It is easy to attach and use, and you'll learn quickly how to use it most effectively. See below for visual guidance.

  1. If your rifle does not have a sling, go to step number 2. If you do use a sling, detach the sling swivel from the fore-end of your rifle. Hopefully, you have a quick detachable sling swivel; that makes this process much quicker and easier. If you don't use a sling, go to step number 2.
  2. Place the large (Keeper) loop of the ScopeShield around the fore-end of your rifle, and let it hang below the scope. If your rifle is not equipped with a sling, loop a large rubber band through the large (Keeper) loop and back through itself. Slide the rubber band onto the fore-end. In the absence of a sling, this will prevent the loss of your ScopeShield while hunting. If your rifle is equipped with a sling, go to step number 3.
  3. Replace the sling and sling swivel onto the fore-end of your rifle. This will enable you to use your ScopeShield quickly, and prevent the loss of your ScopeShield. Your ScopeShield is now attached to your firearm and ready to use. Step number 4 will show you the correct use of the ScopeShield.
  4. Place the front end of the ScopeShield (the end with the large keeper loop) over the objective (front) end of your scope. Place your index finger and middle finger inside the ScopeShield on the rear end of the ScopeShield (the end with the small 'Grabber' loop), and stretch toward the rear of the scope, dropping it down over the scope. That's all there is to it.
    If you want to do a little fine tuning or adjustment to the ScopeShield on your rifle, just tug it down a little on both ends and both sides, so that it covers your rifle's action the way you'd like it to.
  5. To release the ScopeShield from your scope, grasp the small 'Grabber' loop with the thumb and index finger of your trigger hand, and give it a small tug back and up, and the ScopeShield will fly free of your scope.

That's all there is! Just practice a little.

It takes longer to tell you how to do it than it does to show you. Here are visual instructions:
