    I've had a Streamlight MicroStream for seven (+) years, and today the clip broke. I have a habit of sticking my right, index finger under the clip and today it just broke right off. :(

    The light, originally black and now a polished gray-silver, still works fine.

    I'm impressed the clip never came off in 7 years with that habit. I never trust those clip-on clips.

    I believe Bright Guy still has replacement clips for them, if you prefer that rather than outright replacement of the light.

    Had an issue last year with a protac aaa that was resolved under warranty. They actually upgraded the light to the most recent 115Lum version...no extra $$. Picked up some replacement o-rings/clips from them at the same time. Good service. Contacted via phone and email.;)

    Just let them know at Streamlight and I think they will just send you a clip.

    Stream light has a lifetime warranty. They'll send you a new one

    My work is a Streamlight repair center. Outside of a bulb or battery I haven't heard of Streamlight not helping a customer if we can't get it fixed .

    Our fire dept uses streamlights based on their above and beyond customer service alone. They have replaced whole lights before for free even though we were at fault and sent it in for us to pay for repair. I would contact them first and see what they say.
