Since our kits are flower-shaped hood, those parts are composed of each two pieces of large and small parts. If you buy it, one piece of large and small are included as a spare parts. By the way, since the inner surface of the lens hood is rough because of the anti-Stray light paint treatment, so it needs a technique when you stick the kit. We recommend you prepare a certain amount of water which is put large amount of dish washing detergent. The more the detergent is added, easier you can position it by becoming less friction. After the kit positioning or drying done, you should wash the kit surface and the lens hood body with tap water. The tap water would take away excess detergent.
