    I incidentally placed my glasses in the sunglass holder with the lens up, closed it and it got scratched. Upon closer inspection i noticed that the metal piece to lock the sunglass holder is sharp and can easilly scratch and mine is somewhat sharp.

    Fortunately i have 2 yr waranty on my glasses and my scrached lens will be replaced.

    I will be filing that metal piece and maybe cover it with some plastic. or tape.

    a friendly reminder to you guys.

    Good Day

    Another suggestion for protecting your high-tone shades is to cut a bit of Ensolite or other thin foam sheeting to fit into the cup and bottom of the plastic piece that pops down. Even hard plastic can mar delicate lenses...:eek:

    In mine, there's already some kind of cushioning on the bottom of the drop-down section. I put my glasses in there lens-side down, and I haven't had a problem so far.
