    I notice that DX no longer lists tritium fobs on their website. Anyone know what's going on? They used to have several sizes and colors -- in fact, I just bought a small fob a couple months ago and would like to get another one.

    Really? Doesn't anyone have a source for these besides Deal Extreme (DX)?

    Lummi has the SS H3 Locator beads for attaching to practically anything. Assisting you to locate your various items in the dark, without the need for a power source or light charging AKA Trit. They cost 35 bucks pre-shipped though, kind of pricey here's the link http://www.lummi.co.uk/H3beads.html

    Here is a picture of what it looks like on a keychain.

    I think lummi/orb are also having trouble delivering products to customers - have a look at cheers/jeers over on cpfmarketplace

    I got a nite tritium fob from a seller on the cpf marketplace - i cant remember who, but there is a few sellers

    I bought a locator bead from Lummi a month ago and everything went super smooth. He shipped it out right away and even made a change to the order at my request at the last minute. I have found him to be really responsive. I read all the Lummi problems at CPF before I bought it, but really liked the look and decided to give it a go to see what happened. Nothing but positives for me in dealing with Lummi thus far. Just sayin...

    Kyeforsome .... your H3 locator bead looks to be mounted in a square metal device. On the Lummi website, they seem to be sold in round metal devices.

    I think for tiny ones, you can pick them up from fishing supplies too - markers or something (I don't fish!).

    Maybe in UK but not in USA. The only thing fishing store may have are glow in the dark beads, which is totally different (and I fish !)
