The ones I have purchased in the past 5 years are failing around 32F they will not stay latched and are breaking in the hinge area.
If I'm lucky I can get 2 years out of them on my hunting rifles.
Butler Creek will replace them but it's a hassle and not worth paying the return postage on a single item so I wait till I have 3 or more to send off.
When I'm hunting I bring along spares.
That being said I have tried all the other flip open brands and they will not stay on the scope or will not stay latched when hunting in cool weather so even though the quality of Butler Creek Scope covers has gone down hill they are still the best available.
I have a Sightron SIII 10-50x60mm and this was too small (I have the largest size #51 65.4mm), AS IS, but with a little bit of heat from a heat gun applied to the cover (not the scope) I was able to get it on. There is slight step down, but I can live with that as cosmetics is secondary to protecting the front lens. I knew this going in so no deduction because of fit.
However on this size if you are looking for a loose fit (and the reason for the 2 stars, this was going to be one star review) it is not designed, to lock closed unless the fit is tight and there is some stretch required. Without it on the scope the cover would not stay close, there is NO way for it to do so, unless it is stretched so that the lip on the tube part engages the cover that flips up. Even with me expanding it past it's norm, it barely hangs on, a slight bump and I am sure it will pop open.
I have an older butler creek on another large diameter scope (60mm) and on or off the scope it stays closed.
I don't like the pricing difference for various sizes. I bought bigger than needed because it was $7 less. Just wrapped light with electric tape. Fits nice and snug. Isn't going anywhere.
Update: I should have figured but this didn't hold up long. Lasted about 50 rounds before the slightest vibration opened the cap up. This isn't a manufacturer problem though. I wasn't using as intended.
The seller needs to get their pictures straightened out also. I want to try the model with the lever to see if that holds up better but the pictures show both types of cap. Very annoying. Fix your pictures so I can order with confidence that I'll be get to get to what I want.
I am a prepper an don't know if the SHTF scenario will actually happen or not so my gun sits in my closet, loaded just in case, with these scope caps on and closed. I can tell you that under those circumstances that these caps fill my purpose.
The entire purpose of this cap is to do ONE thing and one thing only, open and close! Ya know, so when it's basic operation doesn't even work you have to seriously question the manufacturer and ask them what they are thinking?
My God all the thing has to do is open and close and if it doesn't stay closed then who needs it?
Sometimes it will snap in place and other times it won't snap in place and keeps flipping up. That's if you just stare at it, I'm not talking about touching it.
Running around and bumping into things you can almost promise yourself it's going to flip open.
