    A problem but funny

    I bought a LED flashlight and payed $58.00 good light and very bright for as small as it is. Put it in my pants pocket then I dropped some change in my pocket yesterday. Got home took the light out and a quarter fell through and wedged over the lens. Fits perfectly over the light lens the only problem I have is I can not get it out. Tried everything. Ticked me off but my wife got a good laugh out of it. As long as she is happy.

    try hot gluing something to the quarter so you can pull it off

    I was going to suggest solder. Hot glue or super glue is a better idea...

    WD-40 a little around the edge, then duct tape over the coin and pull. Super glue might make the problem worse, I would use superglue or such as a last resort.

    scratch the quarter in the middle with a pin or pocket knife to make hash marks then lay a string across and put a small dot of gorilla glue in the middle on top of the hash marks.

    Let dry completely and gently pull the quarter off.

    to protect the edges from glue you can smear petrolium jelly or put tape on.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    At least you don't have to worry about changing your batteries anymore..."Introducing the new Ronco paperweight, only $58.00"

    Unbelievable. Hope you get it figured out...that would be driving me crazy. Let us know what happens.

    Try a dab of 2 part epoxy JB Weld in the center with a long bolt attached head down. Let it set up good a couple of days and thread a nut on the bold and pull it off with vice grips. That stuff is like steel and it won't run to the edge like glue....it's thick.

    That happened to me on a surefire. Drove me up the wall. I suggest making a loop of duct tape or using another adhesive. A real strong adhesive you might have in your house is those felt strips that are used to protect hardwood floors from chairs.

    Gluing and pulling may work. Epoxy would be best. Clean the quarter and the thing you glue it to very well before gluing.

    What you really need is an inertia quarter puller. Just like a bullet puller. You mount the flashlight in a hole drilled in a large block of wood. Leave extra space in front of the lens and bang it against a hard surface! Bam, no more problem. Take the batteries out before banging...

    Now how do you prevent this in the future?

    Alright. My solution would be to heat the flashlight in hot water to expand the aluminium and let the quater fall out. Aluminium (flashlight)has a higher coefficient of expansion then steel and copper(Quarter)
    Let us know how you get it out.

    Somebody here has a signature line that sez something like, "There are few problems in life that can not be solved through the proper application of high explosives..."


    "Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"
