Attaching 43mm filter to 21mm lens hood

I've read several other users' comments re: attaching a 43 mm UV filter to the 21 mm lens hood and for some reason, I still can't figure out how to do it. Does anyone have a picture or illustration of the UV filter attached to the inside of the lens hood--which is what I understand to be the way to do this...Maybe that is incorrect.

The hood comes off. It uses a bayonet system to mount it. look inside the hood after taking it off. The filter screws into the inside of the hood.

I've tried doing that several times and the hood acts like it will thread, but instead just turns and turns and turns without ever tightening. This is for the pancake lens. Can it handle both the hood and the filter?

Does your filter have threads on both sides? Not all do. And since it needs threaded into the hood you need female threads on the front of the filter.

As Jatrax said, the filter screws into the back side of the hood via the female threads. The hood must be removed from the lens to do this.

B+W makes them. BH has several different B+W including this one.

Just wondering if a polariser (which is thicker framed) would fit under there?

Anyway proabably its pointles and not practical because it could not be adjusted with the hood on.

I've used this lens a lot lately with a normal 49mm C-POL sans the hood of course.
