I like the Energizer Romeo light, but its pocket/molle clip keeps popping off. It is the kind of clip which snaps around part of the flashlight body.

The fix is simple and applicable to other flashlights which employ a similar clip. Place a small section of bicycle inner tube around the base of the clip. That secures the clip to the light.

The first photo is the original light, before adding the inner tube. The remaining photos show the inner tube section installed.

Good thinking. You should post that in the "share your McGuyver tricks" thread; it's been in need of resurrection for some time now.

[EDIT]: of course, I can't find the one related to flashlights anymore...

This will work just fine.

I use heat shrink and bicycle inner tubes to solve several problems. Which one to use is largely a matter of what size is required versus what I have in my junk box. :)

Glad you find the idea useful.
