    Default PERFECT \"Bezel\" protector for ArcLS

    WalMart sells a Garrity 1XAA flashlight for $2.97 that has a rubber bezel cap that pops off. It fits PERFECTLY and snug over the end of the ArcLS, and the lens opening of the rubber bezel is the EXACT same diameter as the lens opening of the LS. It not only fits the LS perfectly, but it looks pretty neat also [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]! It makes the LS's lens a little more recessed when it's on, so you have a little more scratch protection. FYI...

    I was looking at a post yesterday where a 35mm film case was used to make a small area lamp when put on the end of an ArcLS. Another neat thing about the rubber bezel from the Garrity light is that when it's on the LS, one of those film cases (top side down with the lid ON)) fits snugly right inside the bezel opening without any modification. It makes a really neat little table lamp, or hanging lamp with a lanyard!

    P.S. It's NOT the Garrity 1XAAA "Cool Beamz" light, it's the 1XAA light...I think it's called a "Colors Light", or something like that. WalMart has 'em hanging all over the store on side racks.

    Do you have the Arc-LS 1 or 2? Different O.D. and all.

    PJD - Is it this one or look like this one?



    BTW, these are Garrity AA flashlights. They are promo lights thats why they have the different logos on them.

    AP...I have the LS1rev2
    Joe...That's the one!

    If the LS2 has a bigger OD than the LS1, the bezel should still fit because the rubber it's made of stretches quite easily. If the LS2 is smaller it should STILL fit because it is quite snug on the LS1...
