I tried out this idea on my D cell Maglite this morning.  The paracord loops can be slid on/off the light, but they're tight enough that they don't move around freely.

Looks good!  Are the loops adjustable in length?

I tie them directly onto the light, so the loops aren't size adjustable, .  I use about 15 feet of cord to make one, if done in one color, it's one continuous piece of cord with just the two ends to trim and melt when finishing it up.  I didn't have the knots lined up on the first one I made in black and olive drab, so I fixed it and tried another in maroon.

Since I made the grips and posted 'em on a few forums, someone else has made their own version and posted it on ebay, that's cool with me, I don't mind sharing ideas.  They didn't do it exactly like mine, but that's why I post to my blog page, to share ideas.

Here's what I did with 6 feet of type I paracord and a AAA clone LED light.  My mom called it a 'flashlight cozy', arghhh, I prefer 'tactical clone wrap'.  ;)

Yeah, it really is.  I like the skull bracelet and the long skull beads.

I tried making a couple of paracord neck lanyards.  Black and olive drab 4-strand plait(diamond braid) and black and gray in a spiral braid.

Mini monkey fist attached to a photon clone.  Type I paracord used, small marble center, 5 turns in the fist.
