    i came across the maglite solitaire and liked the size and the fact that it could take a split ring to fasten it to a key ring. problem was that it seems to dim considering all the new state of the art LED technology now. so i got a streamlite microstream that ride in my front hip pocket with a gerber lst magnum jr.

    the microstream comes with a metal spring clip and a lanyard. neither of which ar emy preferred method of carrying. there seemed to be no acceptable way to attach a split ring toadd it to my key ring, so i drilled a small hole in the top of the spring clip, which is the perfect solution for adding the split ring.

    Be careful, that bend is where the clip failed on mine after only a few months. I ended up buying several extra from their site in case it happens again. Still love the light, though.

    Here's how I added a ring to mine (I've got my Stylus Pro on me today but my Microstream is done the same way). I grabbed two different o-rings from my home brew kegging equipment. It takes a way a tad bit of carry depth, but it hasn't been an issue.

    Looks like a solid way to add functionality, so long as you don't ask too much of it.
