    So, the o-ring just sits on the light, it doesn't serve any functional purpose much like a rubber band over a cardboard tube right? This would work assuming my lights have a small indented ring to stick the o-ring.

    I'm not sure about the SF that nein has, but my GITD o-ring is used for keeping the dust/lint out of the tight "trench" that forms between the body and head of my flashlight. GITD is mainly used for that added fun factor, or as a cheaper alternative to tritium.

    How are you guys getting all those Tritium vials into the flashlights? Do you machine out a slot and then epoxy the vial?

    DaFABRICATA, did you use a milling machine to make that slot in your nitecore D10 for the tritium? It appears to be very nicely done. what size was used?

    The milled D10/EX10 pistons were available from 4Sevens and unless I'm mistaken, still are.

    Thanks. I see them now. What size trits would fit best in the 2x8mm slot?

    I believe we all got them from CPF member Bart. Look for his tritium thread.

    Looks like I lost track of this thread.
    Superorb for the upper left flashlight(Milky L-1:Hybrid L2 head w/K2 TFFC) in my picture I used superglue to hold the Trit in the Surefire Clip. Like FrogMan said the GITD O-ring lays in the "Trench"
    Here is a better view of my ML-1


    Most lights with Trits come with a slot milled into the light at time of manufacture. This is the case with the McGizmo PR-T below. Then the Trits are often epoxied into the slot with Norland 61(UV activated) or Devcon 2 Ton(2 part epoxy). A better look is achieved this way as superglue tends to frost and obscure the trit.

    The GITD Orings came from ?PFMedic? I think an old thread in the Marketplace. I haven't seen it recently

    Norland 61 is probably the best option for adhering tritium, though I have had a lot of success with Uhu brand glue as well (german made and dries ultra clear). I prefer it for some applications because it dries somewhat flexible (shock absorbtion).
    Light is sweet and pleasing to the eyes....
