k-x lens hood help

hi all,
thinking of getting lens hoods for my 18-55 and 55-300 lenses but not sure which ones i need to buy as i would like to leave the uv filters on.
i've seen the ones with threads but on the lenses there's lugs which looks like something could be pushed on and then twisted to lock,so can you buy these type?.

Since this question is about lenses not cameras, I'm moving it to the approrpaite forum.

BTW, if you haven't read up on UV filters you might wish to do so. You'll find there is a lot of disagreement on the their usefulness. I'd say if you're getting hoods, you have all the protection you need, so you can finally stop degrading your images with UV filters just the marginal protection they provide.
