    I've never had that happen to me but don't usually (pocket) carry Python clipped gear that isn't vertically loaded.
    Thanks for recounting your experience.

    Thanks very much Glo.
    Their design addresses lots of my use cases. As backup in kits and bags and or on my person.
    I've not found them difficult to maintain and enjoy their simple DD design.
    ... now all I need to do is turn up 10250 and 10440 batt bodies for them ... :cool: ... to share my battery inventory.

    I too enjoy quantum very much. So I decided to bought another and keep as spare.
    The D2 black coated has been on my keychain over 2 years and it's still going strong. (except the tail trits broken because my niece thought it would bounce off the floor). :(

    Pity about the broken Trits. Except for my Ti Customs I installed the Trits with clear nail varnish. They have stayed in place perfectly and removing or replacing them should be straight forward with some acetone. It would probably be more difficult if I'd used Norland epoxy.
    Are you going to put in new Trits?

    Are MatchBox Instruments still producing lights HF?

    Not really looking to buy, just one step beyond curious (not in Danger Zone yet...)

    Hal, Guy at MBI is still developing and making lights and accessories (new charger assemblies are on the way). It will probably be a month or two before some of his flashlight models and updated assemblies are released for sale.
    As you've probably recently read (thanks :)) here is the post in my thread to the links of his lights in production and development...
    http://edcforums.com/threads/hfs-edc.108230/page-15#post-1802858
    If one is interested in getting any of his gear those threads are the Oracle.
    BTW MBI/TGWNN also has a URL.
    Just Google "matchboxinstruments" and first off the rank is the URL.

    As always, I like the attention to detail...its the little things that count, minor tweaks to things, gear mods, constructive critique etc :)

    See not all Aussie threads are random memes and pages of puns. HF covers the classy stuff and we cover...... ..........

    Everything else.
