¡ENDED! FS: Grip Tape for flashlight bodies (CONUS only) ¡ENDED!

For sale are 2" x 6" strips of adhesive backed grip tape.  E1320 came up with the great idea to use strips of grip tape on the flats of his DRY triple XM-L torch to add grip without damaging or adding girth to the already thick body of the light.  I knew right away that I had to try it out and it works every bit as well as expected. The only problem is I had to spend large money to buy an entire roll just to get 1.5" of 2" wide tape.  What to do with all the extra grip tape from the roll?  After adding it to my SAiK SA-305 to improve that as well I ran out of immediate ideas.  What better than recouping some of my investment than helping out my fellow BLFers so they don't have to buy $15-$20 of tape for just a few inches that are needed.

I am selling the tape at $1.00 for each 6" long strip shipping included to CONUS BLF members.  Sorry to the rest of the members outside of the US but shipping such a small item is not worth the cost of mailing.  I will start with 24 pieces for sale and will list buyers and the quantity purchased.  Once the 24 are sold that will be it.  Shoot me a PM stating how many you want and I will give you my PayPal addy so you can send the money as a gift or add in PP fees.

Each 6" strip is enough to do 4 DRY flashlights.

Below is how it looks on the DRY.  3 strips of just under 1/2" wide are placed 1 on each of the 3 recessed flats along the body.  The added grip is amazing and works just as well when wet as it does dry.  Placing it on the recessed flats means the already wide body doesn't get any wider plus it keeps it from chewing up the holster when taking the torch in and out of it.

The flash form my camera makes the grip tape look lighter than the black that it really is.  It blends in great in person and looks great.

Below is how it looks on the SAiK SA-305.  I added it to just 3 of the 6 flats on the body.

Again, the flash reflects off of the abrasive crystals in the tape making it look grey instead of black.

Thanks for checking it out.  I look forward to hearing from you. Smile

Johnny

If you have the patience to trim it down it works great for other things. There are templates for different firearms if you search google.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

Put it on your stairs, for non-slip. Same in the bathtub. Any slick walking area.

For people you don't like, put it in their chairs or on a couch. (have to conceal it with a pillow or something).  At work, put it on the underside of door knobs or the inside of the coffee pot handle. It's amazing how quickly someone will let go of what they're trying to pick up, when they feel something rough like that. Put it on office chair wheels, that's always fun.Sealed

 

I already have some, so I can't buy any more, but hopefully others will help relieve you of it.

but this is what I thought vaseline and ben-gay were for. Innocent

i'm betting that stuff will be spoken for by tomorrow - I only said 2 so I wouldn't seem greedy

edit: btw, if someone is looking for a lot, I've seen it (in store) at harbor freight at decent sale prices, but not in a roll (package of sheets/strips)

Been under the weather the last couple days.  Will pack up the orders tonight for those that have paid and get them in the mail no later than Monday (I think the post office is closed tomorrow).

I will swing by and try to mail them in the AM.  If it's not open then Monday at the latest. Wink  Our local post office is weird.  Some are open for mailing out, others here only deliver mail on Saturday.  If I have enough stamps I won't bother weighing them.  I'll just slap extra on those that need it and get them out. Smile

Grip tape is gone and the sale is closed. Thanks to all who partook of it.  I have finished packing the last of it and addressing the envelopes.  If I can't get the last orders out tomorrow morning they will go out Monday morning for sure.  Please let me know when you get it.

Thanks again!

Johnny

That stuff is great-with my wrists and arm not bein' good, I put it on lots of things. Pimped out a few lights with it. Works great!

Some hardware stores sell it by the foot.

be careful putting it on zoomies - tends to get inside the slide as it sheds grit Embarassed

had to take it off one - i think i'll try putting a coat of clear on it before reapplying
