Thread: v5 Triple BOSS Flashlight (Bright Output Small Size)

  1. #631

    Default v5 Triple BOSS Flashlight (Bright Output Small Size)

    Update

    Several customers have attempted to open their BOSS heads, only to damage them in the process.

    We are working with these customers to ensure they are not left with damaged lights
    We are working to make future builds easier to open
    We are working to offer a tool that makes all BOSS heads easier to open


    In the mean time, there is also an unofficial strap wrench method
    Do not use this or any method if you are not comfortable with tools. Better options are coming.


    There is no single strap wrench small/grippy enough to handle 1" lights but:

    1) Purchase two of these wrenches
    http://www.acehardware.com/product/i...ductId=1273237

    2) Purchase one of these wrenches
    http://www.acehardware.com/product/i...uctId=32145946

    3) Remove the white straps from #1 wrenches

    4) Slice the strap off the #2 wrench, slice this red strap into two equal lengths

    5) Weave the two new red pieces from step 4 into each of the red wrenches from step 3 with the grippy side inside the loop (some thinning may be required)

    6) Adjust the new strap loop sizes to ensure a snug fit at the correct angle



    7) take your custom strap wrenches and apply them to the hot/heated BOSS head like so

    Your response to the bezel removal situation (for those so inclined, mind you...) is yet another reason on a long list of why I'll continue to do business with Oveready. Customer Service at it's best...

    Dan, you guys are awesome. Tom already messaged me to send my light back and it is on its way. Y'all rock.

    I agree. I've never seen such a high level of communication skill or the willingness to accommodate those that need assistance. I say this based not only on the examples in this thread but also on my general experience with these guys throughout the years.

    Right ..... now after such an endorsement, where's my free Copper Boss 35 with Amber secondary led?

    Has anyone seen the picture of a black HA boss 70 on Instagram yet? Makes me think, maybe my boss 35 and 70 wouldn't have to match after all! It looks pretty mean in black!

    Oh wow. I was not excited about black vs patina. I was wrong. I can totally be in board for that!

    I just took a look. Man, the BOSS looks great in HA black. Sort of like it's dressed for a "black tie" affair instead of the rough-and-tumble casual dress of the patina finish. With all the upcoming finish and material options I'm starting to worry about my bank account.

    Ha, yes I'm not a regular on Instagram, so it took me a minute to find the right instagram account too. Try "@torchlab".

    To "pile on" - agree with Scout and everyone else here. Oveready continues to set the bar high for customer service. Now I just need to snag one of those beautiful B.O.S.S. lights!

    I want copper. I know it weighs a ton, but...I love me some CU. But, really, IMHO, this, will be, the perfect EDC light, no matter the material. It is making me comma crazy!

    OH my..................stunning

    Well the year of 2016 has been a pretty cool year for us flashaholics, xhp70's and 35 HI's and stuff, but for me hands down, the BOSS is the light of 2016. It is a work of art............that is useful!

    I may have missed it in this thread, but do we know what the colour temp will be for the Nichia Boss when it is released?

    It was a lighthearted comment meant to praise a small American flashlight business who is at the top of their game. I'm positive every USA Made flashlight has components partially produce in other countries. Not to mention i have been purchasing from OR for years, I'm aware they rep countries of origin in their product pages. Jeesh!
