There are a number of great flashlights on the market that do not come with pocket clips. Thankfully, Prometheus Lights is here to help with their Titanium Pocket Clip.
The Titanium Pocket Clip is, well… it’s just what it sounds like – a pocket clip made from titanium. The specific alloy used is 6Al/4V. The pocket clip has a large ring at one end that can be slipped over the barrel of the light along with an included o-ring when the tailcap is removed. The o-ring serves to remove any play between the clip and the light, and the tailcap, once reinstalled, retains the clip. There are two o-rings provided: black and glow in the dark.
This clip fits several popular lights including the popular Surefire Fury series and Elzetta lights. I picked this up specifically to try it on an Elzetta ZFL-M60.
The quality seems excellent. It has a sort of stonewashed finish that looks great. You can also tell that great care has been taken to remove any sharp edges. Retention is strong and well suited to pocket carry. It is just right.
Observations from Use
I have been carrying the Titanium Pocket Clip almost daily for a little over a month. In that time, it has done nothing but hold my beloved Elzetta ZFL-M60 right where I want it and that is all I really need it to do.
It fits the Elzetta ZFL-M60 like it was made exactly for it. The ring that rides around the barrel of the light sits almost exactly flush with the outside diameter of the tailcap. The end of the clip can be nestled perfectly into the lengthwise oval shaped grooves in the light where Elzetta engraves their branding. This keeps the clip from rolling around the body of the light and keeps the Elzetta ZFL-M60 light from rolling when dropped. This is the clip that should come standard on the Elzetta lights!
It isn’t called out specifically on the Prometheus Lights website but there are two cutouts in the clip and the smaller of the two makes a great lanyard attachment point. So, whether it was intentional or not, the Titanium Pocket Clip adds a lanyard attachment point to your light in addition to the pocket clip functionality.
I also tested the Titanium Pocket Clip on several other lights: Surefire G2X, G2L, C2L, and Streamlight PolyTac LED. It worked perfectly on all of them and didn’t preclude the use of constant on like some thicker clips can. In fact, the PolyTac LED makes a dandy budget EDC light with the addition of this clip. I suspect that this clip will fit the vast majority of lights with standard 1″ barrels and removable tailcaps.
The Titanium Pocket Clip turned a light that I love, the Elzetta ZFL-M60, into a light that I can’t live without. There are so many great lights out there that this will fit. This is such a simple and great product.
