Free lanyards (UK only)

The PD35 v2.0 Camo edition came with a really great adjustable lanyard. The black version and my new PD36R did not, they’re non-adjustable.

So I found these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07XJ8TWD5/

But I don’t need 10 of them. First 8 UK people to reply to this thread I will send a free lanyard to. I’ll go by replies to the thread so others can see when they’re gone but obviously send me your address in a PM.

It’ll just be an envelope with a stamp so no guarantees on when it’ll arrive, RM are a bit slow at the moment.

The lanyards arrived from amazon this evening, they’re ok but not as good as i’d hoped. bit on the small size, i was hoping from the images they would be like the Fenix adjustable one but alas no.

will send them out tomorrow

To be honest I wish I’d waited until they’d arrived before offering to send them out as I think people will be disappointed now, they’re just a bit too small, but oh well you live and learn Big Smile

That’s what I was thinking – generous offer but it’s cost you a tenner, when you could have returned them.
Maybe a paracord one is what you need? they are actually pretty easy to make (and quite fun)
Take a look here – link
Also Phlogiston suggested this one (may be ott for your needs though) – link
If you get entirely stuck, I’m sure I could make you a simple one – what light is it for anyway?

I’m going to contact Fenix and ask if I can buy one of the good ones that come with the camo version of the PD35v2.

Sorry I meant to reply earlier but got distracted. PD35v2. I really like the Fenix one that came with the camo version, it seems pretty bog standard so I can probably find one on the internet somewhere that’s more or less the same. This one from Olight looks like a good contender:

No worries, if you get stuck drop me a line and I’ll make you one (no charge) give me something to do for an hour lol!
Also I have one of these which I found digging around in my spares box – which is pretty similar – you can have it if you like – not as good as the olight one, but up to you Smile

I received my lanyard today and it went strait on to my L21a. I actually really like this lanyard because of the feel, usually the adjustable ones are thicker and I don’t like that. Also I have very small hands so the fit is perfect! Big Smile

Thank you again for this generous give away.

Still got 5 of these cheap amazon lanyards left if anyone wants one.

They are ok if you just hold the torch normally, if you want to hold it and use the tail switch they’re not big enough imo.

You know now you show a photo, I think the one I was going to send is shorter….. so not a lot of point in sending that one. Would you like a paracord one?
Just let me know if you would. More importantly if you do is exactly how long you want it.
If you don’t pm me, I’ll assume you’re ok – it’s no trouble, I have a tonne of it laying aroung Thumbs Up
It can be adjustable as I can cut the adjuster off this too short one so your wrist can close against it – should be fine as is though.

Scrap all that…. I made you one anyway lol! Just finishing it off. Attach like a regular lanyard (the one you have) – I see you have a nice oblong hole which makes it easy!
if you want it shorter, just tie a knot in the tab end about an inch or so down.

Thanks that looks really cool Smile will definitely give it a go. I’m still waiting for someone at Fenix to get back to me about buying the fenix one that I like. The silly thing is I have one here in the box with the camo version of the PD35v2 which i’ve got listed for sale on ebay. I considered nicking it and putting the non-adjustable lanyard in with it instead but that just felt dishonest. Seems crazy that they don’t sell them separately like O-light do, I’d have paid a fiver for it without even thinking twice, they probably cost pennies to make.

Managed to get a lead on supply of the Fenix lanyard that I wanted. Should be able to order next week. Will post back here with more details if anyone else wants to get one.

Warning – Shameless self promotion.

I make paracord bits for heinnie.com one of the most popular being a wrist lanyard

https://heinnie.com/essexman-paracord-wrist-lanyard-red-black

But I guess the full size paracord loop wouldn’t work with most torches? I’m trying to think of a way around that issue….
