The standard 6P tailcap is a momentary switch which has to be twisted for constant on. When looking at the internals of the switch is does have movement in it however when fitted and a battery is installed there should not be a noticeable about of slack movement. Simply press to momentary illuminate and twist for constant output. The internal switch components shouldn't fall out.

My old 'round head' 6p tailcaps come apart whenever I take it off the light. It was not built to do that but it does. No biggy.

The spring on my anti-roll head 6p stays intact, and does not dangle.
