    I do believe that is a Shelf that the SPY 007 is living on?

    Love the last pic. Looks like some kind of futuristic alien titanium city.

    As much as I like the innovations on the recess of the knob,
    I prefer it as it is. I find the pattern in the Ti left from the machining
    very appealing.

    Just a few shots under different light conditions. I've shot these last "flashlight porn" pics before starting really using (and sooner or later scratching) my SPY

    Hi guys,

    I really like the SPY007 and I keep it on my kitchen table where I can grab it for use or just to fiddle with. I grabbed it the other night on the way out into the back yard to do some critter watching and had a LunaSol already clipped to my waist ( I live in swimming shorts over here that don't have any pockets).

    There are a pair of anoles I like to check up on and find where they have elected to sleep for the evening. Kind of like an easter egg hunt.

    Well I found the male with the SPY on a medium setting and I decided to get in close but wanted to switch over to the LunaSol flood. I wanted to clip the SPY007 to my waist but no go.

    The reason for my little story is that I really like the SPY and plan to use it but I need a clip!!





    It was a bit intimidating drilling and tapping the tail cap but the reward was worth the risk and since this light is a user for me, I knew I could live with any mistake or mishap that might have resulted. As it was, I was successful in mounting a clip and I couldn't be happier with the results. The SPY rides very well, low and secure on my waist now. It still tail stands securely but at about 30 degrees off vertical.

    I look forward to the rail mount options and particularly a 1/4x20 mount as I know this light will see action in my shop and I already have a Noga holder waiting to host it.

    I figure some of you guys are going for fancy holsters for your SPY's and in a way me adding a clip is not much different in terms of need and function.

    Don, very cool idea and the McGizmo ....... Ti McSpyClip looks nice but the leaning deal I would work on. I love my 007 in an AOTH horizontil holester because the switch is exposed with a hole light to shine through and I can use the lights hands free but the O-rings need to be removed because they make the exposed switch too easy to accidently turn on the light.

    While that pocket clip interferes with tail standing, it does make it so that if you can manage to convince Data to make you another tail cap, you can swap between them.

    Me? I'm not a pocket clipping kind of guy. This light is just too heavy to clip to my shorts with confidence. I'll be using an AOTH Holester.

    I'm interested in how the Mini Picatinny Clip will work. It could be mounted holizontally, so that you could clip it to your belt or pants, with the light aiming straight ahead.

    Hey Don, that does look nice on there, cool mod! I guess you did not load it too much so you would still get the battery cap on and off easily.

    I envisioned a clip that functions as Don's design but it would attach to the generic rail block.


    Cheers

    Hi Dave,
    There isn't a whole lot of loading but with the rocker in the tip of the clip and where its contact point is, the cap is already well "on track" and about seated when the clip makes initial contact. It worked out quite well as it turned out.

    Of course had you designed something like this clip into the light, there would have been a "T"slot in the cap to receive the clip tail and a ball detent securing it in place and allowing for quick install and removal of the clip.

    I haven't gotten tired of admiring the SPY007 for its design and form. Who would buy a painting to hang on a wall when they could handle functional art like this instead?!?!

    I'm sure they LOVE the time of night when crazy-flashlight-guy comes stomping around the backyard turning night into day, after they'd just gone to bed.

    But seriously, great looking mod!

    I felt the need to respond here.



    This guy is just hanging in there by virtue of getting wedged in. You can't see his back legs just hanging down. In the shot above, his eyes were still closed but with a few failed attempts of getting a shot and the flash going off each time, he rallied to the point of having his eyes half open.



    The SPY didn't bother him at all but I doubt he liked the flash and I gave up on trying to get a better shot. This particular guy just crashes where ever he feels comfortable whether he is hidden or right out in the open. His "girls" are much more selective and discrete with their choice of their sleeping spots. One of his harem climbed up onto my hand today to snag a bug I had caught for her.

    LOL! That branch in his bum can't be comfortable. And I like how the SPY is in all of the pics to keep them "thread-relevant." Thanks for sharing.

    There is just something about this photo that I can't stop staring at. Like the way he holds his head . . . like "I am the poop, so don't test my stand".

    Thanks Don for the cool critters, I always look forward to my escape to Maui.

    I am always afraid that I will drop my lights, especially the expensive ones. Because of this, I prefer a lanyard on my lights and the Spy presents a lanyard challenge. The lanyard hole is tiny, and I like something a little more substantial at the attachment point. For the time being, I've threaded a small zip tie (4 inch) through the hole, rounded the corners for easier carrying and a drop of superglue to prevent it from tightening. After a few weeks of pocket carry, I really don't notice the zip tie. I haven't found anything else that is tough enough and small enough to get through the hole. If anyone has found a better solution, please let me know.

    I like the BT lanyard we supply with the Lummi lights.
    Thin enough to fit the Spy 007 Lanyard hole enabling larger attachments.
    Also very strong Braided Stainless Steel wire with plastic coating. Option to cover with white or black teflon spiral.


    & just to share: I like this photo of my current EDC..

    shopped it just a little

    I had one of those cables on my Wee ( please, no comments Don ).

    IMHO it would be perfect if the steel end was covered in shrink wrap tubing and para-cord was run through where the split ring is. Orb, will para-cord fit through that hole?
