Product Details

Two My Weigh scales, the KD7000 and KD8000, come equipped with one of these hard clear plastic shields. They're designed to precisely cover the KD's weight display and control buttons. They do a good job of preventing whatever gunk you're measuring from fouling up your scale. When ya get too much gunk ruining the view of your scale's weight readout, you'll need another of these specially designed swiveling shields to replace that used and abused shield.

Replacement "gunk guards" on scale adequate but flawed
Rating:
Replacement LCD shields for a MyWeigh KD8000 scale were satisfactory but were flawed. In both shields, the fitments to attach them to the frame of the scale were too small to fit over the pins on the frame. On one shield, the lower right corner had cracked off, leaving a rough, jagged edge.

The main problem was fitting the shield onto the pins. This problem was mentioned by several earlier reviewers. They were right. But forcing a blade between the edges of the fitment and gently prying, I was able to expand it without breaking it, and was able to force the shield onto the pins. It squeaked when moved. I applied a light lubricant to the pins and that reduced the squeaking somewhat.

The result: serviceable replacement but the casting mold is not properly shaped.

Made it work

Unfortunately the holes in the shield’s attachment area where not big enough. I checked against the original shield’s holes just to make sure, and it confirmed my suspicion. The new shields had smaller holes. I had to get the electric drill and carefully make the holes bigger. I got it on, but it still is tight so it makes a horrible squeaking sound when I open the shield up. I even tried to lubricate it, but the sound is still there. I fear making the holes any bigger so that the shield won’t stay up. So, I’m just going to have to deal with the abrasive creaking noise.

Super happy!

I didn't even know replacement shields were available, so imagine how happy I was to find this. They are perfect and amazing and I immediately threw out my old, gross, damaged shield and replaced it. My KD8000 looks like a new scale!

My scale looks like new!

After 2 years of making cold and hot process soap, my plastic shield was pretty shot. Getting a new one made my scale look like new and easier to read. It came with a backup, too! Old Will Knott Scales provided exactly the right item and great service! Thank you!

Great Product but a little hard to install
Rating:
I would give this a 5 star if it were not for replacing the cover is rather difficult. The two tabs fit very tight and takes several tries before you are successful at getting it on both pins at the same time. Their service is great and shipping is very fast.

GOOD DEAL ☺

I am happy with these shields, (2 pack.) The one I installed works WAY better than the original.

As one reviewer observed, there may be some molding residue which needs to be removed, and that is a very simple process.

Use a 5/32 drill bit, hand held, NOTHING ELSE; just run the bit through the hinge while twisting a little to make a perfect fit.

I do believe clearing the hinge should be done by "MyWeigh," but I am just happy it is available; it is super clear, well made, (with the one exception noted hince the four star rating,) and it does protect the panel from splash etc. Worthwhile purchase!!

I received the product I ordered in a timely manner. The shields had manufacturing defects: the pins could not be placed in the hinges, because the hinges were clogged with plastic. My wife is a jeweler and was able to ream out the hinges for me. They now work properly.

Great Product

You will want to keep a couple spares of these around which really help to keep your scale looking like new. Very hard plastic that can take the abuse of oils and especially Essential and Fragrance oil spills.
