I have been messing around with my McE2S switch, after trying it on a Z57 tailcap i crossthreaded the jam nut (black), it looked weird but i fit again on my McTC and it works good, however i now dont trust the reliability of that part because of that accident.

i was looking around to buy that threaded jam nut (shoppe), but i cant find that piece anywhere, just the whole kit, is there a way to get these by themselves?

Manoloco,

The shoppe took over the McE2S program as well as all of the components. Providing individual components such as the jam nut is really a hassle in terms of inventory control and maintenance not to mention the added number of items to catalog on a site. If the nut is all you need, I suggest you contact the shoppe and see if they can help you out.

In terms of function, the nut threads are really only needed to keep the assembly together when the tail cap is off the pak. It does provide some force in sealing the boot. When the tail cap is installed and operational, the spring forces all of the components against the tail cap shell and the threads are not really necessary. If the existing nut will jam against the boot and hold it in place, I don't think you have any cause for concern in using it.

Thanks for the info Don, it does hold the switch firmly in place, even when off the body of the light, and since its not resisting any force in operation like you said, its doing its job nicely, it just looks weird when taken out which at this point doesnt bother me at all.

i Just got an aleph trim tailcap, i prefer this one to the McTC it seems fit better and i love the knurling on the top part, still has good grip for cigar hold, works a lot better for twisting and rides great on the pocket

i am really liking to play with my KL1R head and different parts, its getting to a great point on comfort.
