When I got my Surefire from ebay, i was very happy with this tool of illumination, though not very happy with the price of its equipment.
So i thought about some ways of not spending all my money on gimmicks but using my brain first.

Look at what happened!

Step 1: What you need:

- a Surefire or similar lamp
- some weldingg wire
- some (combination) pliers (not in this Picture)

Remove tailcap and batteries.
You could solder the ends with tin
is the tail cap still water tight?
Yes. There is no change in design. If it was waterproof before, than it is still know. I just found a way to do it myself, than to order it from the U.S.
nice idea. will the hook open up if the lamp gets stuck somewhere? maybe a risk for losing your flash light.
I think the paracord is tough enough to painfully remind you of a stuck lamp, before you bend up the ring wide enough to let it slip. And a crash thats hard enough to break the wire would damage the lamp too, so be careful! :-)
How good is that flashlight
the lights are very good, the customer service is better.
I do like it very much. Its bright, its handy and its very lightweight, due to the nitrolon hull. A guy from the German Military Police told me its "one of the best lights available for small money." It gets the job done!
How is this green?
the color, duh
it saves a purchase from the web, thus saving an airmail package to Germany, thus saving a lot of fuel and by the way: all items are recycled, except the flashlight!
