Thread: Nitecore 1/4-20 threaded accessory reciever thread

    Default Nitecore 1/4-20 threaded accessory reciever thread

    Flashoholics and EDC folks are very creative and it seems like this threaded attachment point on the EZ series just begs for some cool uses.
    Attaching it to a tripod is a useful but rather basic use of the feature, but there are probably many more amazing applications.
    I'm sure there's a "why didn't I think of that?" use for this feature, wanna share?
    Pics?

    A eye stud will let it hang from the center of a keychain or neck lanyard.

    The right bolt inserted can be attached with a neodymium head, making it magnetic and stick to anything.

    Perfect size for a trit, including a larger sphere shaped one.

    If you can find or make one, a single flex shaft with 1/4-20 threads would give the light sort of a lightweight "monkey's tail" attachment for the ultimate pocket snake light.

    With a simple stud you could attach two of them together, add some diffuser cones, and go all mini "Darth Maul", or make the most confusing traffic wand ever created...

    Marduke,
    exactly the kind of things I was thinking about! Great idea about the Trit, big 'ol 1/4" would be nice.
    Maybe a stud on a caving helmet, bicycle handlebars, headband. It's begging for use.
    I have the EZ123 and the low on this is so nice I could imagine the modern kid would be able to carry something small like this and never need anything else. Not having to remove (for security) your bike light and lug it around would be handy. It would fit in the mini pocket on Levi's with room to spare.

    I can see it now, a night sky full of paratroopers, all with their D10's activating accidentally...
