Looking for long(er) rubber tailcap boot

Hi guys, i love forward clickies, even in multi-mode lights.

For this reason I have modded a few of my lights with forward clickies.

Even though forward clicky switches are easy to source, i have yet to encounter long/longer rubber boots, except this but 1 long blue and 1 long black for $9 is way too much for me.

So my question is: does anybody know of a place to buy rubber boots longer than 8mm?

I'm not sure which switches  you're using, but most rubber boots have the little nipple on the inside that can be trimmed off for different length switches.  This is what I've done in the past.

Have yet to find a rubber boot that cannot be trimmed enough to proper fit a forward clicky. What flashlight are you having problems with?

Thanks for the replies guys,

My issue is not fitting the rubber boot (i do trim it if necessary),

I just need the boot to protrude. (or protrude more if it already does)

Thats the exact same set I wanted, but like you no way would I pay 9$ for 5 cents worth of rubber accessories.

I even asked 47s can they just send me one for free, and they said no.
