I made a lanyard for my Acebeam TK16!
As it is a tailswitch light and the pocket clip is non reversible, I thought of this configuration would be the best to grab the light in a comfortable manner to use it with the tailswitch.
It allows to pick the light up from the pocket by the knot/bead in the tail.
It allows to wrap the fingers with the lanyard in different ways.
The orange thread glows under UV so I can find it in the dark with the RovyVon Aurora A8U without turning ON a “white light”!
There are probably other and better options but I came up with this!
I didn’t test or calculate the distance, but my eyes saw it reaching at least 200m, as shown in some photos above. More than that, I am not completely able to say concrete data :zipper_mouth_face:
Well, it can be reversible, but it will a) open the clip and force it more, and b) scratch the head.
While with the tip towards the tail it has a “groove” that allows that clip curve to pass without scratching, towards the head it with have friction with the fins! And it will scratch the anodizing.
I should have explained better this before.
If comparing the clip inversion in this light and in the Olight S1R Baton and the On The Road M3 Pro, in these last lights the clip (that has similar shape) will fit much better and without friction with the host!
I believe my answer will be a little like the above one, as I don’t have the LD10 to compare. If I had, I would do real comparisons, but I guess the best way to compare them without that is picking the specs:
TK16 3xOsram = 338m
Imalent LD10 = 247m
About taking the bezel out and reaching the lens / TIR / Leds? I just pressed the bezel against the hand or a glove and rotated the flashlight.
It was not glued. Once you have the bezel out, you’ll reach the rest easily.
If you are asking about the driver side, I didn’t dismantle it, but it has a screw that can be taken out eventually.
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.
