    Hi, just wanted to share some photos and ideas about getting a pocket clip on the superb little Astrolux A01 light.

    Since it is a bit larger than other lights in it's category, I really do not want to carry it on my keychain nor alone at the bottom of my pocket. I am used to carry these little lights just clipped inside a random pocket of my jacket, shirt, etc., but this little light has no pocket clip option.

    So I managet to make a quick and simple clip from a steel pen clip. Just drilled a little 3mm hole at the top of the clip and secured it on with a screw and some washers. The bent top of the clip prevents it nicely from moving or rotating. Will see how it holds on, but for now it seems pretty stable and firm. ;)

    Would love to hear any other clip options from you guys, because when this one breaks on me, I will have to try something else :rolleyes:

    I also have the copper version and while I carry mine loose in my pocket. The clips for the aaa size Felix lights(LD01) will fit snugly. Tried it for a couple days, but prefferred to remove it. I lose things at work if they are clipped in my pockets, R. I. P. Spyderco...
