I'd like to have a ring of GITD goodness on my lights like the light in the upper left. How is this accomplished?

Superorb,

lighthound should have some GITD O-rings for sale, I like them in this arrangement as well. I have one on my Ti Aleph 19

So, the o-ring just sits on the light, it doesn't serve any functional purpose much like a rubber band over a cardboard tube right? This would work assuming my lights have a small indented ring to stick the o-ring.

I'm not sure about the SF that nein has, but my GITD o-ring is used for keeping the dust/lint out of the tight "trench" that forms between the body and head of my flashlight. GITD is mainly used for that added fun factor, or as a cheaper alternative to tritium.

How are you guys getting all those Tritium vials into the flashlights? Do you machine out a slot and then epoxy the vial?

DaFABRICATA, did you use a milling machine to make that slot in your nitecore D10 for the tritium? It appears to be very nicely done. what size was used?
