Thread: Titanium Boot Retaining Rings to fit Mac & Sigma EDC lights

  1. #1

    Default Titanium Boot Retaining Rings to fit Mac, Sigma, HMW Tridents

    Welcome to the first Official Offering from BratGuy Enterprises!

    Ti Boot Retaining Rings

    Made to same specs as McClicky, so should work anywhere a riing in used to hold a boot in with a McClicky!

    These rings should work in the following lights (if equipped with a boot ring):
    Mac's Customs EDC/Tri-EDC, XM-L series
    Hanko Machine Works Trident
    Sigma Customs (thetasigma)
    BratGuy Enterprises (mcbrat)
    TM Design & Fabrication (DaFabricata)

    This set will be slotted instead of having the tiny holes.
    No stonewashing with this design (the slot stays shiny)



    Unfortunately, my costs went up considerable on this batch, so p[rice has been adjusted accordingly.

    Rings will be sandwiched between two index cards, and mailed in a small standard security envelope.

    Pricing: $22.00 each.


    Paypal (goods/services) is: bratguyenterprises@gmail.com

    Availability: Available (see below)

    Batch 1 Info:

    Created originally to fit Mac's Customs Tri-EDC and EDC lights, however these rings were made to the proper 11/16-20 UN thread specs, but it seems not all of Mac's lights were made to the proper spec.
    The McClicky switch is way under spec for that thread size, and it looks like Mac's lights were made to fit the undersized spec of the McClicky, but it varied from light to light.
    Unfortunately, this batch will not work in Mac Ti or Damascus lights. I've not found one of the Mac's Ti EDC or Tri-EDC lights that they fit. The machine shop and I have been discussing option for the next set to be sized to the McClicky so they will work with the Ti lights, and we will also be doing something different for the install holes. That batch may not have the quantity to get this same price though...
    These have fit every copper light I've had, and most of the aluminum and brass, but not all.
    With the Brass or Aluminum lights, the internal threads could be cleaned up with a standard bottoming tap if you have access to one, or possibly you could use a small round file to flatten down the tops of the threads in the light.
    These rings will also work in the Sigma Customs lights, as Devin uses a tap for the threads, so they are to spec.
    I don't have a Hanko Trident to try them in, but in theory they should work in them as well if the retaining ring on them is to the thread spec, and not the McClicky specs (undersized).
    These are made basically the same way the stock Delrin ones were made, in that a long rod is bored and threaded, then each ring is parted off. because of this some look like the hole is not centered (just like the stock rings), but it's just an optical illusion because of where the threads are visible. if you hold a ring up to a back light, you can see it's uniform.
    These just have 4 small holes to screw in with. size of the holes was a limitation because of the landing area with the threading, they visibly look smaller than the stock ones, but I've always used a curved nose tweezers for these rings, and it works fine for these as well.
    Blasted finish was just a test. a couple have marks from test fitting, and due to the nature of how these install, there won't be any more blasted ones.

    Batch 1 Run: SOLD OUT

    Raw machined finish - ALL SOLD
    Stone Washed finish - ALL SOLD
    Blasted ALL SOLD

    Regarding the holes, you might consider a milled slot across instead of drilled holes.

    I'll take 2 blasted rings, paypal incoming.

    Sigh. I wasn't going to do it, I don't really need it, but stone washed is nice. I'll take a stone washed, shipped to Canada. The delrin ring is my least favourite part of my sigma.

    Edit: Paypal sent.

    Received mine yesterday, they are matched to thread spec as expected. Thanks Mick.

    Aluminum Bronze and Tellurium Copper, hand tapped so my host should be fine for any made to proper spec.
