I just got this and haven't used it out in the field. This lens cap goes on and off easy/quickly. The one issue with it is that it is less tight than the original lens cap on my Canon 18-55mm EF-S lens. It's easier to take off than the original cap but it's also more likely to fall off if bumped. The cap stays on the lens fine due to the the pressure exerted outward from the spring design, but it will shift sideways if pressure is applied, which may create space between the cap and the lens which may let small particles in.

It do does have a string which the original lens cap didn't have. I'm going to keep this but I might look into a different design if I ever have to replace it.

There is not much you can say about a lens cap in a review. But I thought I mention that I use this one on a Canon G1X with lensmate adaptor kit. It fits very nicely over my polarizer filter. What I like best, and what is not necessarily apparent, is that you disengage the cap from the filter by pressing the outside of the cap. I like that because many caps pinch on the inside of the cap...so if I reach to remove the cap when it is already off, I end up having my fingers touch the filter or lens. (Not sure if this explanation is clear). But in this lens cap, since you reach to the outside of the cap to pinch it off, your fingers never come in contact with the lens/filter if the cap happens to be off.

I know it may seem apparent that one should know visually if the lens cap is on or off. But I find that on many cameras, I find myself reaching for the lens cap to remove it, only to find out it is already off...so I can end up touching the lens instead if the cap is the sort where the pinch mechanism is located closer to the center of the cap. With this cap, I avoid the problem.

Lens cap fits fine. Leash is worthless: string that has to be tied manually; unravels easily.
55mm "Snap-Cap" Lens Cover w/Leash for SONY Alpha Kit lenses is far superior.

Have had it for a few weeks and no problem yet. It actually works better than the orignal Cannon lens cap. Love the string on the cover.

you get a nice cap with a hole, and a long string. no more, no less. the cap fit fine, but I had to do some fancy knot tying to get the string to be useful in the end I folded it in half, put that half through the hole in the cap, and finagled the loose ends to tie around the lens. it worked out ok, and it seems like a secure fit.

The lens cap is sturdily made, but the thin tether cord leaves a lot to be desired and seems quite flimsy as compared to the sturdy cap. There are no instructions with the part as to how to best use it. I have a lens cap with a tether that came with my Canon S3IS that is perfect, if only I could get another one to fit my T2i.

It came in a simple envelope, no extra stuff. It is a nice snug fit and looks nice too. The plastic and clips are sturdy and hold well to my lens. The only thing that I didn't really like is that they string is not attached, you have to do that yourself.

They apologized for my disappointment; yet I can however, say how easy it is to communicate with them and how pleasant is the great post-purchase customer service experience (getting a full refund, including S&H). If they gave people a better, stronger [and attached] way to use their lens caps, then they'll be sure to get glowing reviews. EforCity needs improved assembling of their products. It's a great-looking product and fits, but I only ordered it to have a lens cap that would be attachable to the camera: I did not think of asking -before buying- if I could see a photo of the other side where the "paper-thin" string is attached so I could also see where and how it comes attached. Despite the string being thin in the pic shown here, I wanted to believe my excitement about finding a lens cap that I could trust not to get lost...so my blind faith chose to "ignore" the photo they have beside or above their description. The item's poor (or insufficient) quality lies in the string being so thin it will UNDOUBTEDLY break, and was not really attached; so I'd be afraid to use it!! It's easy to assume it would fall off/ get lost.

P.S. They're VERY nice, but for an even greater professional image, I told them they need to have someone more fluent in written English communication/ grammar in order to be clear and possibly ensure future customers will always be at ease.

What you get is the cap and a piece of non-elastic string. It's up to you to find the teeny tiny hole to somehow poke the string through, and then affix it to your lens.

I was constantly misplacing, or losing my lens caps. Before I purchased I read the reviews, and of course, being a negative person I always read the 3 star and below reviews first. If they're are not too bad, or if they are written by incompetent people, I go on to the 4 & 5 star ratings.
The most negative reviews were about the string that comes with the cap to secure it to the camera. I see absolutely no problem with it. I've been using it a little over two weeks. I think it's fantastic. It's strong. Its secure. It is long enough to tie it to the strap holder on my T2i. I am so glad I bought it. It was costing me a fortune to shell out 7 or 8 bucks for a Cannon lens cap everytime I lost one.
The only thing I did wrong (I didn't think it through) was purchase 2 caps (I have only 2 lens, thus one for each lens). One cap would have been sufficient, because it stays with the camera. I was thinking it was supposed to be tied to the lens somehow.
Anyway, I have an extra should I need it.
