This may be of little interest to many of you but for me it works great.

As your mount relocates to various objects, the threaded binoviewer must be rotated manually for the ideal horizontal angle to view parallel to your eyes.

A small tubular rubber washer maintains a firm connection grip to the diagonal threads but allows accurate binoviewer rotation without any slippage from the location that you selected.

Things like too loose or too tight a connection take the fun out using binos and there must be some poor soul among us for whom this is a good 99 cent solution.
