There is an old thread that goes into the details of the bat binoculars, make and model. From there, the conersion to add the yellow bat is pretty straightforward

Had to make this!!! Thanks to all the contributors in this thread!!

I made this brass bat by hand and it's a friction fit to the lens.

Super quick paint job...
