General suitability for birding
A) You have not stated to which model of Zhumell scope (of which I have never heard) this refers, but the new Swarovski has not only superb optical quality, but also a binocular eyepiece.
B) Thank you for stating the blindingly obvious in the second part of your query, which appears to be in response to some previous interaction between yourself and Fixya, the details of which you have not indicated.

Do the barrels on my pentax 20x60 pcfv binoculars
NO, I do not think the actual barrels do at all, however often the inserts in the ends that hold in the lenses may, it depends on manufacturing process. regardless of how they are constructed and even if initially the barrels did detach, they most often however are sealed at manufacture to stop the ingress of moisture and keep alignment.

Need an erecting diagonal for tasco 11TR
Why? are you going to use the scope for terrestrial viewing -- bird watching etc etc
You do not need it for astronomical viewing--- no up or down in outer space.
Here are some:
These are usually sold in 1.25 inch size-- measure the hole in the focuser.

I just purchased a Meade
You stick it into the focuser and tighten the small thumb screw. Then you put your eyepiece into the diagonal.
BUT! why would you do this? You only use this for terrestrial viewing not for night time Astronomy.
