Introduction: EDC Flashlight Bite Guard
Hello peoples! Today I will show you all how I solved the problem of misplacing your third hand. If you're like me, you never have a head light when you need it most. If you carry a flashlight on your person, you have solved half the problem. But you still need to hold it somehow. Sure you pinch it between your neck and shoulder, or bite the light itself, but who wants to grind their teeth or bite your lips off? Oh, you do? We'll, carry on then. FOR THE REST OF YOU, follow these few simple steps and I'll do my best to assist in situation!
Step 1: Tools and Materials
For tools you will need a pair of scissors, heat gun / lighter, and a razor blade.
For materials you need a flashlight of course, a piece of heat shrink a larger diameter than the rear end of your flashlight, and 2 O-rings.
Step 2: Cut Your Heat Shrink
Here you will simply trim a piece of heat shrink to about a 1/2 inch longer than the back cap of your light.
Step 3: Place the O-rings on the Light
Take your O-rings and roll them down to a good spot to where they will keep your teeth from sliding off the light. This one is lucky enough to have groves to sit in.
Step 4: Place the Heat Shrink
Now we will slide the heat shrink over the O-rings. Overlap is fine, we will trim it in a minute.
Step 5: Let the Heat Cannon Kick It!
Heat gun / lighter time! Simple as it sounds, just add heat and watch it shrink!
Step 6: Trim It
Now you'll take your razor blade and trim around the button (if there is one). And flush it off with your end cap, so you can still remove it.
