    Cut about 4" out of bicycle tube and pull the first 2" over the objective end the last 2" will hang over like a sun shade. When its not needed you can fold it back over itself. Cheap, effective and doesn't need to be put on and off.

    Would @veitnamcam be able to make one with some alloy if you let him know what thread to do?
