Thread: ZeroRez Family: Twisty, Shorty, & Mounty

  1. #1

    Default ZeroRez Family: Twisty, Shorty, & Mounty

    What began as a simply solution to support ridiculous amps with no (zero) resistance, has grown into an entire family of brass tailcap inserts. Each can be installed into a variety of Z41 and compatible tailcaps.





    ZeroRez Twisty (ZRT)
    Works with the SF twisty + momentary package, adding no length




    ZeroRez Shorty (ZRS)
    Twisty only, adds 15mm to any standard body+tailcap package




    ZeroRez Mounty (ZRM)
    Twisty only, adds 1/4 tripod socket to any standard body+tailcap package

    I've been searching for tripod/flashlight options the last couple of days. Then I get the newsletter and what do they have, tripods and the ZRM tail switch mount. Got one of each on the way, thanks for offering these.

    I am not sure if I am asking in the right place, but can I just check if the brass insert for the Zero Resistance Twisty can be easily removed & changed, Just like the McClicky?
    The installation guide mentioned that we need to 'tap the factory rivet into the center', so I thought that it might be a permanent installation, or difficult to make changes in the future.
    Thank you!

    The ZRT requires the factory SF parts for attachment. Even when you have special tooks for removal, frequent processing will wear out the parts, reducing their lifespan. Of the 3 options above, the 2nd and 3rd can be changed as easily as our McClicky click. The first (required for momentary function) needs most of the SF factory parts.

    For changing between McClicky and ZRT, we recommend two tailcaps.

    I really like these on my C size tails. Too bad we don't have something like this for E series. I think an E1 body with a shorty style +15mm would make a cool light. I suppose you would have to bore out the body at the tail side for it to work but then you could tail load. You could use a 17500, 14500 or AA. I would be interested in using 1xAA with a custom led boost driver.

    I have a question regarding the ZeroRez Twisty (ZRT):

    I have an old Surefire 9Z with a tailcap that doesn't have a lockout feature. I'm wondering if installing a ZRT would allow lockout operation?

    Our ZRT is the stock Z41 guts with a new disk in place of the disk+spring. The lockout functionality comes from its installation in the tailcap. Without the threads of the newer tailcap, none of our tailcap options will hold, so none will provide the lockout you seek. The only option is replacing the 9Z tailcap in a newer threaded model. Once you have that you can do whatever you like.

    Default Zero Rez Shorty

    Hi, when using a ZR shorty, do you forgo the ability to mode switch for a light, or can you quickly screw in and loosen to switch modes?
    thanks

    Most modules look for an interruption in the power. This works just fine with the ZRS.

    To simulate this, leave your current switch turned on and rotate the tailcap open/closed.

    I have a ZRS in one of my Surefire lights (containing an OR 3-mode triple) and mode changing is a breeze, easy as can be.

    We are considering design changes and will likely not bring the ZRM back in its original form. We should have something this winter.

    Unsure yet. Our goals are ambitious and the design isn't finished. So there may not be room.

    Hello im a newbie to the hobby and i have (bought about 15yrs ago lol) SureFire Z2 combat light that needed a new tailcap boot (twisty Z41 with screw under battery spring). I used Overready instructions for the removal. Thanks for the guide. Unfortunately i cracked and striped the plastic retaining ring/disc. Where can i find a replacement in order to put my switch back to factory condition. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You

    Sorry, ZRM have not been popular enough to make a 2nd batch in their current form.

    We have ideas for an improved version and should have something next year.

    Hi, I just came across the shorty bodies and zerorez tailcap, and I have a few questions. Can a zerorez tailcap fit a malkoff md2? and at the other end, can a shorty body attach to a Malkoff head?

    Thanks,

    Stellar Canuck

    You won't fit a ZeroRez into a Malkoff tail, but you can fit it in a SF tail which is compatible with the Malkoff body. Can't remember the series number for the SF tails, but they are the same as the ones on 6Ps and P2X and P3X.
    You may find that the ZeroRez switches need a tad more clearance it you're using a protected 18650. It tends to crush the top of the cell before it completes the circuit.
    I started a thread about how to fix it here......
    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...Malkoff-Lights
    I don't think any tubes apart from Malkoff fit the Malkoff heads, even though the SF threads are the same. The SF bodies have a rebate for the P60, the Malkoffs don't.
    You can get Martin D White of this parish to cut you an MD1 tube which will allow you to use a single CR123....
    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...-quot-MD1-quot
    I use an MD2 head with an MD1 tube, SF tail, ZeroRez Shorty and a 18500 cell, makes a nice light.
    I use ZeroRez switches with Triad Tails on all my Malkoffs.
    Hope that helps.
