    Default How to replace rubber tail cap?

    How the heck do I replace the rubber part of a tail cap? Am I just supposed to gently pull it out? I tried gently pulling at it with pliers but I don't want to damage the switch or tail cap. This has to be easy and I feel like moron for not being able to figure it out.

    Depends on the light.

    Generally you unscrew the switch module from the tailcap since the rubber boot is being compressed by the switch and the tailcap.

    Variations include a retaining ring on the outside of the tailcap.
    Finning does help dissipate heat. This is why the fins are removed before cooking fish. Otherwise it will throw off the heat and not reach the proper cooking temperature. --Duglite

    depends on the light

    but usually you take tail off and unscrew the switch assembly from the inside
