OK, OK… I didn’t reinvent the wheel here or anything, but there are two important points. First, never be afraid to mod something that just isn’t working for you. Second, even with basic hand tools, this procedure took all of three minutes start to finish.
Removing the little “v” in the pocket clip’s channel has really made a huge difference in how easily the light can be attached to thicker pants but has not affected retention; near as I can tell after more than two weeks since the mod.
Now, if Olight could find a way to make this clip work on these lights so it could carry just as deep bezel down as bezel up, the clip really would be perfect.
