You need to unscrew the bezel. You can try putting a sheet of rubber or a leather glove on a flat surface and press the bezel against that while holding the head. I just used the palm of my hand but some are probably tighter than others.

Got it. The new body wants a skinnier O ring for the head. The old one doesn't really fit in there.

Sometimes it turns itself on though.
Even got it into some kind of strobe mode once, didn't know the EX10 had a strobe mode.

AT, I had the same issue, it was the brass ring of the light engine hanging up on the inside of the Ti head, I just put a wee bit of lube around the brass ring and all is good. Today I am going to polish up the inside of the head and see if this eliminates the need for lube, will let you know the results.

Edit: I polished the brass ring of the light engine instead of the inside of the head using a a Dremel with polishing wheel and it works very smoothly without any lube and functions perfectly.

i was able to restore momentary operation by the application of some Captain thin insulating tape to the piston.

This also restores the lock-out.

As my trit tube from 4 sevens has a slight shelf about 0.3 by 0.5mm at the bottom I took another approach to solving the insulation problem at the end of the piston as tape had a hard time sticking to such a small surface area. I took a piece of latex from the innertube of an old piste sew-up bike tire (very thin) and cut it so that the inner hole fits snugly around the stickup part of the piston and the outer edge cut to match the piston body diameter. One layer of cellophane tape on the other end and it works just like the original:D.

Got mine in a couple of days ago! I love it! While there's no fancy carving on mine, I did take a couple of pics. While the clip is useable, I think an actual McGizmo clip might fit it well too.

Pocket Saver - I have been enjoying EDC'ing an EX10-Ti but I am in a coat and tie all day. I notice that the knurling is great for grip, but tough on dress pant pockets.

So here is an option to reduce the wear on pocket edges - The local hobby shop had some 1.5" clear shrink wrap that does a good job covering the middle three rings under the clip.

I hate that it resembles Aunt Maude's plastic covered couch, but it really saves the fray on the dress pants.
