    Does anyone know if there's somewhere to get custom clips? I end up never using the clips on my flashlights for EDC because I don't like any of it sticking out of my pocket. When I'm hiking/camping, etc. then I don't care, but I just don't like it where people can see while I'm at work or wherever in my normal course of the day.

    I'm the same way with my knives. I only buy ones that sit flush or even a little lower than the edge of my pocket.

    What light are you looking to buy a clip for?

    This is literally the only spot I posted and nobody has replied. Any suggestions where else to ask?

    Sew a button hole on the inside of the pocket in which you wish to carry the knife or light. Insert the clip into that button hole so that it is still suspended and your are able to reach to reach it. Cheaper that buying a new light or clip unless that is what you intend to do in the first place and you are looking for justification to do so..;)

    I would have to sew a button hole on all my pants and shorts though. I'll just end up carrying it loose in my pocket like I have for years now if I don't see a way to get a custom deep pocket clip that's affordable for it. But it would be nice to have it clipped and at the ready.

    I have not found any custom low ride clips for Fenix lights. I think you best bet is going to be a pocket caddy or Raven pocket shield.

    I'm not sure if he has made any clips for flashlights but Pop's Custom Clips on Etsy does custom work. I had a knife he had never worked with so I sent him pics of the knife and the original clip (with screw) for reference. I gave him specs for the length I wanted and he made a pair for 2 knives. Cost was reasonable and took only a few weeks.

    Thrunite has replacement clips, you might have to contact their customer service. Their clips fit most flashlights in my experience.
