MYOG keychain flash light clip on 03/07/2012 23:24:51 MST Print View


I just wanted to share cheap keychain flashlight MYOG clip.
For this MYOG I used vinly ID 2 hole clip (press stud on vinly band with small tin clip at the end like this: ), cheap keychain flashlight from DX (photon micro light knock offs) and some two component glue.

First I've cut the vinly strap in half and cut out the press stud hole which was then glued to the keychain flashlight on to the opposite side from where the on/off button is. The other half of the vinly strap was tailored to hold only press stud and clip, the rest of the strap was removed. Once glue drys you just simply attach the flashlight back to the vinly strap using press stud and there you go. The light can be attached almost anywhere, can be detached to exchange battery and can be turned in all directions by rotating press stud or simply to attach it different way. You can easily unclip the lihgt and use it with hands.

Light + clip

It might be nothing new here but it's cheap, functional and light. The whole rig weighs in at 9.5g, and once in camp you can use the clip to hang your socks for drying
