Way too thin IMO. The clip is easily detachable from the flashlight, plus it’s too narrow so it won’t accept a jeans pocket for example. Here is what I’ve done to mine :

Hum, any info on how did you this X3?
Any specific drill thickness? Did you use bolt and nut?

I am thinking about getting a new Tool AA 2.0 and the clip is always the headache in this light Facepalm
Not sure if I will be doing something similar to what you’ve done, but I appreciate any info on this Innocent


Drilled two holes, then tapped them with a tap at work… Alignment is not perfect but it does what it’s supposed to.
I didn’t use any bolt, but I grinded the stock alu washer in the tailcap because the screws were a bit long

Thank you very much for your answer mate Wink
I guess I will try first on my “old” Tool AA, so that I can perfect it when I get the new one! And eventually with a new type of washer Smile
I liked this method and if you don’t mind I may borrow it! Beer

Hey, the B in BLF might be for “borrowing”, who knows ?
One small advice though : make your holes slightly farther from the tail. That way if your screws are protruding in the tailcap, you can rotate your switch to aligne the flat side of the Omten with the screws

Ahah, thanks ! I guess I’m borrowing some ideas from you (opening the Olight, the eventual mod for the LT Tool clip…), hope you don’t mind Blushing

Thanks for the tip on this. If I drill it, I will try to do that, just to be sure it will all fit internally.

One thing I’ve been thinking after seeing a thread from CPF, is to use the M1T Raider clip on the Tool AA, if it fits. A guy there was/is using streamlight pocket clips, so maybe the M1T fits too !!

Thumbs Up
