Custom VL 90 Lids Suggestion

hey all, as I age, so does my VL 90 hoppers that I have used for so many years. Although I have about 5 working hoppers, I have about 5 more that do not have lids. I was hoping someone came up with something that may be able to retrofit to replace the lid. Any suggestions or ideas would be great

I tape pod lids and pod ends (cut off) on mine.

An excellent path there.

When the viewloader was first introduced, the lid tabs and hinges would break easily. The rep would come to tournaments with a big box of lids in the trunk of his car, and we would all wander over there during the day and trade him lids for free. It is impressive that anyone has an old viewloader lid to break lately.

Have anyone tried a different lid? Like the plastic/rubber ones from APP for example?

I think I had some old Indian spring pod lids that were close, but that being said, that was years ago and no longer have them to check. I have found Hot glue to be my friend to keep the old kids that were cracked together and from falling off. Just hoping to find a better solution.

I just checked an old Indian Springs pod and lid against a VL90. The lid matches up almost perfect thus making the pod side a little smaller but not so much it won't work well.

Nasty Boys loader lids with a piece of PVC inside the lid (i.e. a cut off piece of pvc pipe about 1" long) to keep the lid tight. Tape it on with 2" wide electrical tape.

If Dan doesn't have Nasty Boy lids they can be found as scope caps made by Butler Creek, who probably made the Nasy Boys lide.
