Well, here it is.Black decorative pocket clip, bezel down carry
I ordered and received one of the new HDS clips.
Yeah'a! >>>> (regarding Henry's $15.00 shipping fee for a Freak'in pocket clip).... But It's ORDERED!!!! ... .... Oh! Thanks for the Head's Up!
This just may be the most expensive Pocket Clip I'll ever buy! .... Heck when I get it ... maybe I'll polish it, pet it, install it, talk to it, take it off, then put it in the safe! ... LOL

If you mean like the HDS standard clip?So is the lip of the clip still so small it can't be slid over the top of a pocket without lifting it?
Yeah, pretty much.
The lip remains the same.
I holster mine anyway.
Henry must be making a fortune from his shipping fees lol
The black finish on these clips is awesome! Very much like the finish on the black bezels.
I gotta get my head examined, it's no wonder I'm always BROKE!
Seriously though, so far every thing I've ordered from Henry (my 170T, Flush Tail Cap & O-ring kit and now this Clip) I've had to pay the $15.00 shipping! However after this order, unless I really need the part or sending either of my lights in for warranty work. Aside from ordering a light, it's too expensive buying stuff from him.

He's probably also hoping the high shipping charge will encourage people to buy from his dealers so he can spend time building lights and not shipping them.
I agree, but when you can't supply your dealers with product and when you're presently recieving over 100% of the Retail cost of the light (product's retail price + Shipping fees + sales tax if applicable) Up Front on all back orders (or to the end user). You don't need the vendors, well until a manufacture has inventory sitting on their self to sell on a wholesale basis.
In regards to shipping the light itself, yeah if you're in a different country you'll pay the higher cost of shipping + duties (in addtion to the time to fill out the customs paper work). However, I ordered my Rotary from the UK and it cost the vendor to send it via the Royal Mail (hold on let me look) ... Ok, the vendor paid $10.32 English lbs. to ship the light and I was charged only $5.79 English lbs. when I ordered the light.
On the same note, I ordered a custom light from the builder as well as accessories at a later date and was charged $6.00 shipping at check out.
However, I'm talking about $15.00 shipping for a $22.00 Pocket Clip! I'll post what the actual cost was to ship the clip.
Before anyone thinks I'm trashing HDS Systems, ... I'm a fan, heck I own a 170T and Rotary, purchased a flush tail cap and o-ring (since the vendors didn't have it in stock at the time, or I didn't find one that did) and now the pocket clip .... So we're just talking here!
PS to further emphasize my support of US made products in this case flashlights (not US based company who builds their product overseas).
I started several threads in a Dive Watch Collector’s forum I’m on (who's members are also into custom firearms, custom knives, etc.) to give them the heads up on and to start a discussion in regards to Henry’s lights, as well as Jason’s custom made lights.

He could do that, but it would goof up the custom orders option. I don't know what the right answer is, I was just offering a possible reason. In any case, I'm sure charging a flat rate is much easier than calculating individually. But when a small Priority Flat Rate box is $5.00 anywhere in the country, I'm not sure why it's still $15.00. I'd get a huge stack of Flat Rate boxes and go with that like Don does for all his orders.Originally Posted by pjandyho
Ok, I think we are all going off the track. This post is about HDS lights and not about shipping costs and duration. Let us get back on topic please.
Does anyone know if this pocket clip will work bezel down with an HDS light? It's from a Solar Force L2 series, which I believe has a 1" body but I am unsure on the diameter of the clip ring.
I have the same question about the Solarforce clip. I PMed a member who posted a picture (I believe on the "how do you edc your hds" thread) In his posting he mentioned the clip was modified. He may have been referring only to the lanyard he was using. In any case, I haven't heard back yet. If anyone has information, I'd appreciate it, too, as I think this clip would be a great option as it allows for a lanyard attachment.
Edit: here's the thread with the picture of the Solarforce clip on an HDS light.

I think some of these threads lose a lot of valuable information that many people would like to read or discuss because so many people are so worried about going off topic or they are moved to a different section and the hot topic dies because no one goes to read it anymore.
Resistance is futile...
So, has anyone received a new 120 lumen High CRI yet? I'm curious to see what emitter it uses.
It's unfortunate but things like this happen and I think I can wait. This isn't going to be my first HDS light so I understand there are standards of quality that have to be met.
More machine shop issues? I thought he got that mess sorted out months ago.
Just a thought. Does anybody think that if Henty was to make a limited run twisty, would they sell?
