Help Needed with 50-135mm Lens Hood...

I accidently knocked my 50-135mm lens hood against something while it was in the reverse position and now I think it's quite loose. I may have knocked off a couple of teeth that attach and grip the lens.

If someone could post a picture of their lens hood, it'd be appreciated. I'd liek to try to fabricate the missing pieces with some crazy glue.

Thanks!

I hope these help. It is actually a pretty complex bayonet system - you may have to replace it.

Pentaxman beat me to the pictures. One solution temporarily could be electrician's tape. It's nice and black and won't show up as badly as duct tape. It sticks to lens hoods pretty firmly.
