How to maintain binoculars

Hawke binoculars are precision optical instruments and with the correct care and maintenance can provide years of unparalleled service.

  1. Storage : When not in use

    • Keep lens covers on.
    • Store your binocular in the protective carry case in a moisture-free environment.
  2. Remove Dirt & Debris

    It is imperative you first remove any small dirt particles from the lenses before using a cloth. Use either a lens blower or very fine brush.
  3. Cleaning the Lenses

    Gently rub the lens with the lens cloth that comes with your binocular, or a similar soft, lintless cloth.
  4. Cleaning the Body

    It’s recommended to first remove any small particles or dirt using a blower or very fine brush. To remove stubborn dirt or grease, add one or two drops of isopropyl alcohol to the cloth.
  5. IMPORTANT

      • Do not use any household glass or cleaning products. Abrasive solutions can damage the lenses.
      • Never attempt to clean your binocular internally or try to take it apart.

    Any attempt to open your binoculars will invalidate your warranty and could cause irreparable damage.
