    Default McClicky Tool

    Not long after we started making flashlights, I made a little tool for installing McClicky switches. It's easily one of the most used tools around the shop. We just made a batch of these large enough to go around. The body is hard anodized 6061, and the pins are made from 304 stainless. The tool will hold the switch in place so it's easier to start the threads, especially if the light it upside down.

    I know many people use snap ring or needle nose pliers, but we've seen this cause a lot of damaged switches and flashlights. If you work on flashlights, I'd definitely recommend picking one of these up.

    They are up for sale on our site here: https://okluma.com/collections/front...ky-switch-tool

    Possibly. We're trying to get a couple new lights done this year, and they're taking precedence though.
