Hmmm, there must be an alternate way as those end thingies on the lanyards are usually locksnap types and pretty difficulat to pull apart again without braking something.

Got a pic?  Even if you have no way to host it FF has its own pic host, just keep it under 128kb in size.

Here's a link below to the Surefire website. It show the clip between the lanyard and the split ring. This is what I'm assuming it SHOULD look like.

Mine has the split ring on the lanyard where the clip should be, and the clip isn't attached to anything - it's was laying alone in the bag. No way for it to be disconnected accidently. Looks like I may need to send it back and get another one! I'll try to attach a picture of mine. Never done a photo attachment, so if it doesn't work, let me know how to insert it.

Can you get the clip onto the split ring?

Hmmm, I think Zen's onto something here - you'll need a pair (or two) of needlenose pliers, though.

Yeah I have seen the lanyards go both ways meaning that in this case, the clip goes on the split ring, and then you get another split ring for whatever light (or item like a battery holder) that it will be attached to.

Fo example, my A2 doesn't need a ring, not does the battery carrier.  OTOH, an E2e would need an extra split ring!

Oh and while I am thinking about it, where can I learn to make some of these cool lanyards?  There are a few I know, but these (and those like the Cub Tail) look nice.  Would love to have a better resource if available!

OR we could have class right here in this thread!

Can you get the clip onto the split ring?

Didn't try that, but it looks doable. Then, as Charlie said, I can get another split ring and hook that to the light. The clip is too big for the light, but the split ring should do the trick. I'll just have an extra split ring, which is no problem. Thanks for the idea!

BTW, still no word from Surefire support. I sent them the picture as well. I was the same lanyard on e-Bay, and it didn't look like the clip was connected on that one either. But the picture on the Surefire website shows it differently. Now I'm just curious about how it's supposed to be configured, but the solution here sound very doable. Thanks for the great idea, Zenghost! :thumbup:

Wait guys.........let me get my camera from my son


BRB

These are very easy to open......you just need to be careful and take it slow.



As you can see there are 2 little tabs that hold the cover closed.
Using a very thin screw driver...insert it the right side and pry just enough to disengage the tab...now holding the cord and cover, lift it open while pulling to the right, to pop the left side open. The cover should now be open and will swing up to expose the cord. Take out the cord....string on the clip....put the cord back and snap it closed.......

ALL DONE  :thumbup:

as far as weaving lanyards, it's dead easy, and fun, and really kind of the equivalent of knitting. :)

Absolutely what I needed. You da man!!   :sunny:

Following your directions and pictures, it took less than 5 minutes to get it on the right way. I really appreciate your time in taking the pictures and walking me through this. The key for me was where to pry it up with the screwdriver. I fiddled with doing this, but in the wrong place, which wouldn't have helped at all.

BTW - still no response from Surefire support - almost 3 days and counting.

Probly not the best idea for a throwing knife, well the actualy lanyard anyhow, the grip is pretty nice though and thin and tight, couldnt resist adding matching lanyard even though it may get caught up and slow it down when actually thrown

still fun to hold and look at~ Maybe ill just do a grip on the second one
