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:

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

Ya know - just going on aerodynamic principle and I could be all wrong here, if the lanyard were long enough it would trail behind when the knife is thrown and act as a "tail piece", keeping the knife pointed forward as it sped through the air...:dontknow:  Same principle as on fireworks rockets with that long stick attached to the side and extending back, the aerodynamic drag on it prevents the rocket body from "tumbling" and the dang thing flies straight - until it either explodes (rocket) or lodges deeply into its intended target (throwin' knife).  Worth a try anyway.

If if the tail was long enough, you could hold on to it and reel it in afterwards!!!

OK maybe not but it seemed like a cool idea

No, REALLY!  Try it with, say, a plastic tube of some kind or whatever - it will tumble when thrown far enough - but attach a string to one end and it'll fly straight - I promise!

I finally received an e-mail from Surefire support last Friday. I was out of town, so didn't pick it up until yesterday. In about 10 words (wish I had saved the response), they basically said to attach the clip to the split ring on the lanyard, and then hook up the other end of the clip to the flashlight. The problem with that is that on the E1E, which is what I bought that lanyard for, you are supposed to hook the lanyard up to the pocket clip, which has a very small opening. The split ring is the only thing that will fit on the flashlight clip. The lanyard clip is too big to hook through anything. So their suggestion wouldn't have worked.

So another hats-off to BruddahBill for his outstanding response!  :D

Power to spare, but it would be a little difficult as an EDC! On the other hand, some of the pants that I see some kids wearing probably have big enough pockets to accommodate!

Looks nice!  I got some paracord - maybe I need to figure out how to make something with it!
