How do you carry your Aleph?

I've been playing around with Aleph lights for a bit and have really grown attached to them. The performance and flexibility are kick a$$. The trouble is, how do you carry it? As of now, there are no pocket clips and just adding a lanyard takes away from the light's ability to stand on end.

Well, I just some Berkely Point clips and was fascinated by them. The little McGizmo clips. These things are GREAT!! Anyway, I wanted to put one on my Aleph III, but how?

I had some stainless rod laying around and this is what I came up with.

Now I have a McGizmo clip AND it can still stand on end. Probably a lot of trouble for nothing (actually, not too much trouble), but I think it's pretty cool.

I really like these clips. I think I like it better than I would a pocket clip. For a light this big, anyway.

Pssst! Hey Tony... the shiny button on the switch there? That's snaps into a little plastic gizmo that clips to your pants. Works GREAT for carrying these little buggers. That's how I carry mine. Did you think the button was to ward off evil, negative energy or something? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

But seriously, I like the little stud, you stud.

Biscuits and Marlboros? So are you one of them health nuts or something? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

The Vaio would suffice for me. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Nice way to attach a lanyard Chop /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif I guess you'll be 'marketing' these soon? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/naughty.gif

I may whip a few out and make them available as an accessory on the lights that I build.

Great Idea Chop, I use a split ring in the lanyard hole to attach a clip. The lanyard attachment you have made is exactly what the Aleph series needs hope there will be some available for sale one day.

How do you get any work done with popeye's grease all over your fingers???

Personally, I prefer a beer if I'm going to put status-symbol food products in my pictures. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Clipped to pockets(s).

Aleph 1 and 2 heads mounted on E2D Defender bodies with 2-stage Z54's. I replaced short clips with long M2 clips on all my E series lights.

Aleph 2 1 cell with McE2s switch fits perfectly in an Uncle Mike's Aerosol Chemical Agent Case!

Got my BE tubes today! The Aleph 3 with a BE4 is a perfect fit in a RipOff CO-127 padded pouch. The flap closes perfectly, both Velcro pieces are aligned.
