Why use a Blinder
By closing one eye it is understood to impair the ability to judge depth and distance.You also cause the open eye work to harder which can lead to eye strain. Closing one eye can also affect your balance.For these reasons using a blinder can assist in improving your shooting. Some shooters choose to use a blinder to force the use of the non dominant eye in preference to holding the rifle / pistol in a preferred hand.These blinders are also suitable to be used with a headband. You can either place the holed end under the headband or affix some velcro.

Instructions on use
Holding the blinder with the opening away from you. Place a finger into center of blinder just below the hole, push down with this finger whilst holding the sides to create a slight curve, Then slide onto diopter. Small cracking sounds maybe heard on first few applications. Use same process to remove. Use Caution if turning blinder from one side to the other due to the clip on design the opening may catch on the edge of the diopter housing.Following these guidelines should result in many uses. (Random tests have allowed for min 200 uses although this may vary dependent on use}(Note this is for the Blinder Only, the dioptre sight shown is for illustration purposes only)

About

I am a qualified NSRA County Coach for both air rifle and pistol and regularly invovled in coaching local scouts and the Scout National Squad members. I am also involved in Target Sprint and currently an Educator for British Shooting. 
I started 3d printing when the cost of sight risers in particular seemed to be out of the price range for most beginner shooters. Sight risers being an important aspect in achieving a good position in shooting. Suggestions then came in about other products which have been developed with the input of shooters from many backgrounds some of which have also competed for GB.
If the items you are looking for are not on sale here then please to email me with a sketch and dimensions of your idea and I will gladly look into designing it for you. 
My printing is limited in size however so we are looking at smaller items within a size of 200x200x200mm. 
I am able to print in PLA, PETG and ABS and hold stock of a few colours, if the colour is not listed I may be able to purchase this for your project or Item.
