Does anyone have a instruction book on this product or a link to a site on the web that still has instructions?


I was just issued this with a flashlight. The department has no regular encaps for a flashlight so I have to live with this. If I have to live with it I want it to work.


Was told that there is a piece that goes down into the light that is missing. Might have to fabricate somethig since I think the product is no longer for sale anywhere.

It toke me a pretty long time to find one and the one I got is also missing that part.


I had the orig packaging but that doesn't even show this peace.... Next to no info on the packaging.


It's supose to have a metal strip that goes to the tip of the batt, the copper ring of the strobe has to connect to this.


But if your dept doesn't have normal tail caps, do all the flashlights have this tail ??


If so, then it may be an option to take another one apart to see how it looks (and take a pic to post on here) and replicate it.

Uh, why is ANY employer issuing a employee with faulty equipment in the first place? I would also expect your employer would need to replace it, or fix it. Depending on what your job is, it may be a safety/OHSA issue if they refuse to fix/replace it...


What do you do for work?

Police-Jimmy,


Nobody that I know of is using one so I can't check it out. It was a phase the department went through years ago I guess.


If someone else on here can post some pics of the strip and how it connects then I am sure I can fabricate something.

You may have better luck over at CPF- Candlepowerforums- they are all flashlight crazy over there.


I still say its your employer's responsibility to give you proper working equipment if its issued.. seriously.

I think I have found an accidental fix for the problem.


Was working a wreck- first on scene- when the first volunteer that arrived asked if I had a flashlight. I thought he was going to check pupils of the entraped driver or something. He used it to break the only window not already broken during the rollover.


Broke the strobe right off. So now I guess I will be getting a new flashlight or at least a regular endcap to get it back going. :lol:
