    A Hair Tie For Your Light

    A HAIR TIE FOR YOUR TACTICAL LIGHT

    Hi guys,
    Many tactical lights come with a lanyard, so you can let go of them while you are reloading or opening doors, etc.

    However these long lanyards give the light too much freedom of movement, and sometimes can cause some problems as they can get hang on something or as I saw it happening, colliding the light into your head when trying to clear a stove-pipe jam.

    The inexpensive hair tie can be knotted into a light that doesn’t have a point of attachment, so it more practical in all situations.
    Its short length, help to keep more control on your light, and it is very easy to use; one flip of your wrist and the light is in the back of your hand, another flip and is back into your palm.

    The pictures show it attached to my thumb (due to my large hands is in my case more comfortable) but it also can be used in the middle finger, or even in the index finger.

    Visit your GF or wife and give the hair tie a try.










    Cheers

    I've carried a SureFire Z2 this way for about 8 years now. I use a black hair tie that I knot where the original lanyard was. The great thing is the light still fits lens down into the speed holster with the loop exposed for easy grabbing. Great tip to pass along.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    I just use a boot lace with a toggle... I let my wife keep her hair ties.
