Maybe I guess,.. but hard to imagine what I could be doing wrong. Just tightened the nut, until it started to get snug. Didn't keep tightening until it was tough to turn. Have had no problems with any other hood other than the 300II (I've had experience with many of them, including the old 300, old 500, and old 800).



It sounds like you didn't have the hood on straight, and the lug was not seated in the groove when you started to tighten the screw. You can very easily break it that way.

If getting Canon to replace it fails, contact your credit card company. They often provide extended warranties. As them for a replacement lens but settle for a new hood.

I've had similar problems with my Nikkors, but not yet with a Canon lens. Cheap designs.
