Fastener for Lamp Assembly

A fastener for easily attaching a circular lamp assembly to a microscope is made by reforming a hole cap into a split ring with flexible tabs.

Referring to the figure, hole cap 1 with resilient tabs 2 has its top removed leaving flange 3 and is severed at 4 to form a split ring. Nut 5 from the objective lens portion of microscope 6 engages ring flange 3 securing the ring to the microscope. Circular lamp assembly 7 can now be forced over flexible tabs 2 of the ring and held adjacent the microscope objective lens.
