Comments:

This replacement switch cover is approximately 10mm x 8mm, whereas the original cover is approximately 10mm x 6mm. Not an exact fit (see pictures below), but works just as well as the original as far as operating the switch is concerned.

     

 

The slightly thicker flange causes the switch retaining ring to stick up about a half-millimeter more than the original. Because the retaining ring does not snug completely down to the flashlight body, there is a slightly increased risk of water intrusion via the threads. I would recommend against intentionally dunking or using this flashlight (with the translucent switch cover) submerged underwater.

     

 

Before and after pictures of the switch (like night and day!):

     

 

Removal of the side switch retaining ring is a simple process of unscrewing it. See this link if you need further instructions: http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/484918#comment-484918

You can use a pair of long-nosed pliers, snap ring pliers, or tweezers as a tool for removing the retaining ring. It is not screwed on very tightly. However, be very careful not to scratch the anodized finish of the flashlight or the retaining ring.

Rule 1-1 as it applies to life, take it as it comes.

Yes, they are the KD ones.

I’m just offering these up for people who only need one and who don’t like to wait the two or three weeks that it typically takes for shipping overseas. Innocent

Last bump.

This sale has been going on for a week now, so I guess whoever was interested has gotten theirs. I’ll continue monitoring this thread for another few more days. After that, if anyone happens to stumble across this thread and is still interested, please send me a PM.

Hope you liked it as much as I did mine!

I can’t imagine why anyone with a gray cover would want to miss out on the lit switch, when it’s such a simple fix.

I received the Thorfire S70 today. I have the translucent buttons from Kaidomain. I cut part of the base of one of them and put it in the Thorfire, this is the result:

What a transformation, it’s a shame that Thorfire weren’t interested.

I don’t know how I missed this thread. Sad I could use one if they are still available.

Thanks!
