Cut the end of the belt leaving enough material to cover the bulbside of the lamp.
Finish the cutted edge with a lighter and simply push it over the head of the flashlight.

You could also add some velcro or a button, but this solution works fine!

Attach it to your belt and have a nice day out, with your illuminating friend at your side!


(If you have a different flashlight try to tape some ducttape inside of the holster, with the sticky side to the outer tape, to get more space for your lamp. But remember: The tighter, the better!)
