    Default Surefire E2E and Lanyards

    Well, bought the lanyard for the SF E2E and did not like it. Not a good fit at all.

    I read several threads about lanyards and E2E but still have no clue what the best way to attach one. So which/how did you attach a lanyard to the E2E? The SF lanyard for my G2 fits perfectly.

    I was under the impression that the lanyard was supposed to be hooked to the pocket clip on the E2e.

    you can do that as well. I've attached a small split ring to mine and then attached the lanyard to it.

    I wish SF would make a tailcap lanyard ring for the E series lights. I removed the clip, and now have no place to attach the lanyard to.

    You could make a lanyard loop out of the pocket clip. This will also serve to close the gap and keep the O-ring in the bore.



    If you heat the clip to red hot in a vise with a torch, it is easy to bend without breaking.

    Hmm, I was hoping to just buy something. I guess we'll wait for Surefire to provide a better lanyard attachment to the E series flashlights.

    I like the idea of bending the clip but it's too complicated for me.

    I agree with GreenArcher,the E2e lanyard hole is a joke. The smallest split ring I could find sits perpendicular to the clip. Even worse, the light balances at an awkward angle, almost perpendicular, rather than pointing down. This makes it impractical and uncomfortable to hang around the neck. Somebody at Surefire wasn't thinking.

    The lanyard holes need to be enlarged to allow a split ring to freely rotate. And the holes needs to be positioned closer to the head allowing the light to dangle closer to the vertical.

    As you say, the stock clip does put the hang point dead amidships; see pic with wrist lanyard below:



    One alternative is to get the long clip which will give you a good bezel down hang. If you want a bezel up hang, I think the modified small clip where it is converted into a Lanyard loop is the best solution.

    Where can I buy clips like the one on that lanyard? (not the lights clip)

    They are nice clips. I ordered several ones last week. Still waiting for them though due to UPS screw-up.
