DA 14mm lens hood problem

I have had the DA 14mm lens for almost 2 years. I am experiencing increasing difficulty in putting the hood on and removing it. I imagine it's a question of wear on the plastic of the hood. My habit is to set my camera up on a tripod. After I make my shot I reverse the hood, put the cap on and put the camera back in my back pack. Then repeat the process for my next shot. The hood will not click into place. If I use any strength to get it to stay on the lens it's very difficult to get it off. Anyone else have this problem? Any workarounds or suggestions?

One suggestion I've heard for hood bayonet mount problems is to use some of the white silicone tape that you use for sprinkler pipes- it'll look totally weird with the black and green color scheme, but it might help. You can get some for a buck or two at any hardware store like home depot or ace or whatever.

Hmm. I did not observe my DA14 lens hood is diff to attach/detach to/from the lens.

I am guessing there is a rubber hood for 77mm lens which you can buy to replace the stock lens hood? This might solve your probs.
