this is what i have af-p dx nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6g. it came with insert that makes 55mm-52mm so i can add on a 52mm lens insert. i do not like screw on hood since it get to tight around insert to screw off. i want one that does not screw into insert. i want one like other full circle one where it screws in to lens and not insert. not sure when i got package deal for my camera it came that way.

The hood you need is the HB-N106. You can get either the Vello copy or an original. B&H sell them both. HB-N106 | B&H Photo Video They mount using the bayonet on the outside of your lens, so when you have mounted them correctly, they can't twist.
It is a great disservice to beginners that most of the beginners' kit lenses don't come with the hood anymore.
