Nop! The flashlight has an integrated shelf.
The way to do it is from the top (bezel) as I described.

I have a copper TK16.

Great light. But it did have one problem.

One day, the clip just broke apart and shot off the light. One of the arms on the clip that grips the light literally just snapped off. I wasn’t even carrying the light when this happened. It was sitting on a desk. The light was less than 3 months old at the time.

Apart from the crappy clip quality, it’s a great light.

I asked the question because I thought TK18 and TK16 were of the same construction… I’m really sorry.

If you don’t mind, may I see some images around the TK16 lens?

Here’s an image of the TK18 around the lens and the driver’s side

@Naito:

There's a link in my signature to a thread on how to post pics on BLF.

If you don’t mind I will post it later today as I don’t have the light with me at the moment Wink

I managed to take some photos above the MCPCB and you can see that below it it has a shelf.

I also took some others, with and without the glass lens, similar to your photo.

I wasn’t able to take the driver of its place. I guess the wires are very short, so I would have to unsolder the driver to take it out.

It is screwed in with 2 screws too, as show in the review post!

No glass lens >>>> With glass lens

Indeed a nice little light! I didn’t have any issue with the clip so far. I just wish it was deep carry from the tail.
I also would like that changing modes was a bit faster (as Olight), but it is not unbearable Wink
Definitely one of the best, brightest smaller 16340s in the market! Thumbs Up

Yup! Take the bezel out, take the lens, take the o-ring and then tap with the flashlight in your hand, with the lens down.
If you cannot remove it, try a toothpick or something pointy but not hard to alleviate the TIR on the sides. Then tap again.

It is not glued nor stuck, but the holes in the MCPCB and even the thermal paste below it may be hindering it from coming out.

Try the toothpick gently around the TIR, without much pressure Wink

If you have a suction cup, you can also attach it to the TIR and try to pull it out!!
