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.

Number of questions: 1
Any suggestions on how to remove the existing shield? One hinge snapped, but the thing does not seem to budge off the pins. Trying to slide it to the right without doing even more damage. Thanks.

Thanks Pati62365! I figured it out. Used a piece of wood and a few light taps to drift it off to the right.

There really aren't any special tricks to it. To remove and replace a shield, you just have to use a bit of force. Some people suggest using a blowdryer to apply heat to the plastic peg/hinge to make it more pliable. I hope that's helpful for you!

Exact replacement cover for my KD-8000
MyWeigh customer service referred me here to purchase a hinged replacement cover that protects the LCD display on my KD-8000. I was pleasantly surprised to find an exact replacement at a very reasonable price and shipping cost. This was my first time ordering from Old Will Knott Scales and I found my order was processed quickly, well packaged, and received in good condition. I was also kept well informed of the order status. Thanks for the great service!

Scale protection shield
I have had my scare for about 5 years, one day I found one of the hinges had broken off.
I thought I would have to replace the whole scale. I found this company on the internet, and ordered a replacement set.
Due to COVID-19, and Christmas, it took a week to get it from Denver. It was very easy to replace it, once we got it
Thank you for having replacement parts.

Perfect Replacement Shields
When I damaged the shield on my KD-7000 scale, one of the two metal prongs that hold the shield broke off as well. I am happy to say that the replacement is holding and working well on just one prong. The shield is excellent quality, a good price, and fits perfectly.

Fit perfectly
I was hesitant about buying because of some reviews here about the shield breaking or needing to widen the hole. Did not have issues at all, fit perfectly.

Make it fit
First, drilling in plastic can create sharp edges that are prone to cracking. If you're going to use a drill, use one that's oversize and deburr by hand. Second, most do not have drill indexes or the need for a single use bit. Third, after a magnified inspection, the problem is a burr on the inside of the right hinge that can be removed by gently scraping with a pointed knife. Use a wet Q-tip with cleansing powder to smooth the scrape. Both covers I received had the same defect. Thanks OldWillKnott for the fast shipment.

5/32” Drill Bit
KD7000 scale that is 10 years old needed new cover. The new cover would not go on, so per other reviews, I used a 5/32” drill bit to “clean out the holes” on the new cover. Just manually turned the bit to clear the little bit of extra plastic that was preventing the installation. Worked out great!
Reviewed by: Jennifer D from on 12/23/2019
The plastic hinge on the first one snapped as I tried to install it; the inside diameter of the hinge just wasn't large enough for the hinge pins.

The second one wouldn't fit either, so I enlarged the hole with a 5/36" drill bit. That one then went on fine.

Replacement "gunk guards" on scale adequate but flawed
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!

Great Product but a little hard to install
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.

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!!

Replacement Shields for KD-8000 scale
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.

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.
