Plastidip seems like it wouldn’t work. I have fumbled a few times and surprisingly the ceramic tiles did not break. I don’t want to risk it anymore. Thought about using electric tape but that looks tacky.
Try a wrist band.
You could also create a silicone sleeve with common caulk .
You could use a different flashlight
You could switch to a headlight.
Get a good flashlight instead. Try the Lenser M7R. You won’t be buying another one for quite a while. Mine is 6 or 7 years old now, original battery. Stays right on your hip. Don’t even notice it. 1 handed operation.
Buy it, try it. If you don’t like it, I will buy it from you. Win / Win.
Retractable key chain on belt would be another.
T-Reign if you drop a lot
I use one with my circuit tester. It probably has a several 100K cycles on it by now.
Use a single 16550 powered LED like a Fenix TK that is bright, durable and doesn’t weight a ton. Time to retire those big old Streamlights and Mag Lights.
Are you afraid that your flashlight is going to knock up someone else’s flashlight?
Sorry, I had to do it.
Not sure I could handle a lanyard or retractable. Im considering the silicone idea , at least test it out on part of one of the flashlights I have.
Heck you could get a baggie and tape it up to desired shape plus squeeze it with your hand for a custom grip.
I used to create molds with it all the time.
Do not laugh but if you can get out the wiring you can create a all silicone body and to give you a few ideas just use clay or sand even to make a shape or shoot it between plastic sheets then press in a shape .
It takes over night to harden and some will harden quick if you spray water on it .
I just upgraded from the streamlight Ultrastinger to http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BD9OKC6?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00
HVAC Foam tape.
I was thinking condom. lol
The ones posting here about getting rid of the old stodgy Streamlights are correct. I wouldn’t think a sleeve would be needed if the flashlight was small and light. I have dropped my Nitecore a couple of times on tile and wood floors and have not had an issue.
Hey Linus, I think that’s similar to the Plastidip the OP mentioned. Pretty neat stuff for tool handles.
I’ve had great luck with this one…it focuses the beam so I can get just the right exposure for my pictures. Costs $30. Have dropped it on tile numerous times with no ill effect!
