Lens hood/ matte box for WD-H58 Converter?

This wide-angle converter has proved a great addition to my Canon HF S100, but in bright light I sometimes notice a loss of contrast, flare etc - duh!

Has anyone come up with a lens hood solution, given the lack of filter thread (why would Canon omit that!). Or are we into the DIY territory of black plastic sheet and duck tape?

There should be a "petal" type lenshood that came with the Canon WDH-58.
I've got one and it's very good.
