Nitecore EC2 With Crenelations Removed - tam Removed, Crenelations, Nitecore,
To hell with ordinary! I've just removed the ugly, pointless crenelations off the bezel of my new Nitecore Explorer EC2. I guess there goes my 1-year warranty. You only live once (not twice, as they said in the old JB movie title)...

You don't need any power tools to perform this mod, just a plain metal file, few patches of carbide paper (e.g. 100, 280, 600, 1500), some polishing paste and a cotton cloth.

Cover the lens and the upper part of the flashlight with a few layers of adhesive paper tape (masking tape) and give it a go. The resulting rounded, shiny polished surface is more aesthetically appealing and more pocket-friendly, at least IMO.

Please note that any modification performed on a flashlight will most probably void your warranty!





Cheers,

Tam

Fenix AB02 Flashlight Holster Modified (Rotor Removed) - tam Removed, Rotor, Modified, Holster, Flashlight, AB02, Fenix,
After only few hours of use I've found my new Fenix AB02 flashlight holster to be annoyingly clumsy, owing to its bulky rotating mechanism and clip being attached in the middle of holster.

It was also obvious to me that carrying my Solarforce L2 angled down in this holster (although that's what it is made for) can only lead to it being dropped and damaged, or lost, since there's not enough grip to hold it securely in place. In other words, no real use for the rotor. So out came the Dremel tool and sewing kit.

After removing the steel clip (unlatch with a knife blade and slide it out) use needlenose pliers to squeeze the split plastic pivot (arrow!) and remove the plastic clip, exposing the rotating mechanism. Note the amount of grease!


Use grinding disc to sand down the brass rivet heads (arrows!) and a knife blade to remove them. Now the black plastic rotor housing can be removed from the holster. You can now remove two useless...
