Different clip for Sunwayman V10R???

I have two of these flashlights and both stock clips are broken. I’d like to drill and tap some screw holes and use it to fasten a clip of said design. I just don’t know which clip to buy that fits the curvature and is proper length…suggestion(s)?

It’s a 22mm diameter light since no responses.

22mm? So roughly S2/S2+ dimensions?

Skinnier clip like on a Jet-II?

Not sure where drilling’n‘tapping holes comes in.

I wanted a temporary clip for a Minimag (I hate clips in general). Took one off a generic 18650 light (S2+?) and just bent the clippy part that fits around the tube, ever so slightly. Lather, rinse, repeat, ‘til it was the right size.

I thought of a way to make the S2 clip to work. Find a same diameter steel tube and use a hose clamp to change the radius. Tap and screw means drill a hole, use tap to make threads, and use loctite on threads when screwing it onto the flashlight.

Well, yah, I know what drill’n‘tap means, but not as it’d apply to clip-on clips. My ’502 has the clip bolted on with 2 screws, but that’s it. The S2 clip looks pretty thin to drill any holes through it, unless you’re using eyeglass screws or something.

Aha, there’s a S2 clip that bolts into the holes around the “lip” on the tailcap. This bugger:

I was thinking of these (got a bunch, so…):

The top one. I tried the clip on one and it didn’t work. The holes would be drilled in between the light’s existent holes. I’d then thread the holes instead of using the nuts it comes with.
