PH-RBG folds into DAL 55-300mm?

I recently bought a PH-RBG equivalent lens hood for my DAL 55-300mm lens. It seems you have to take the hood off to store the lens. Does this hood fold in or slide in to the lens for easy storage?

You can turn the shade around and store it on the lens.

Yes as Boriscleto mentions many people often simply turn around lens hoods and screw them on in reverse. Takes up a little less room that way and the hood is still kept with the lens when you need it.

It would look something like this with the hood reversed on the lens for storage.

If you buy a lens cap that pinches together in the center, like Tamron's, you can remove the cap with the hood on. You could then store it vertically with the hood on and the mount down, if you had the correct case :-)
