    Greetings Ladies and Gents ,)

    I received the opportunity to get my hands on both of these samples from TEC Accessories for review; and my first unbiased opinion, to say the least, is ! WOW !
    [​IMG]

    Having some empirical knowledge of keychain/marker fobs as well as machining process I find these little beauties not only well designed and constructed as well as the finish and size of these samples dictate durability and multiversity for applications in EDC use as well as many others ..
    [​IMG]
    I attached bearing swivels with and without a Pico/Nano Clip to both and have been clipping these things everywhere including the bathroom light chain while thinking how much I need to own more of these (^;

    All in all this is a very well made item that I'm sure will please anyone that likes cool useful gagets, and even if you don't, you will after seeing one ,)

    I honestly have no idea when they will be available but I can direct you to the makers site with links below ..
    http://www.tecaccessories.com/products/product.php?II=31
    http://www.tecaccessories.com/products/product.php?II=32
    I also encourage you to acquire them when they are available at the EDCF Forum Store; notice of this will be posted on this thread as well as the other realted threads inculding the givaway thread >> http://edcforums.com/showthread.php/79739-TEC-Accessories-Product-Preview-and-Giveaway!
    This thread also has more info on the product ..


    There is much involved in the release of these items and on behalf of TEC Accessories and Jon, I ask you to be patent for the release date and availibility info .

    Have a great new year !

    BE WELL .. Griffin Hawks

    Love 'em, but aren't they GITD rather than tritium? How's that work out?

    The "Glow Pellets' are very high quality and last for hours with a good charge ..
    A kit will be available to convert them to Trit:
    "The TEC Glow Fobs are designed to allow easy replacement or exchange of the glow pellet by simply removing the o-ring at the end of the housing. We offer an optional DIY kit for those of you who may want to try making your own pellet inserts. Possible projects include glow pellets of different colors, or making a self-luminous tritium insert.
    A DIY kit will be available so the user can mount a tritium vial in a clear tube and replace the glow fob pellet with the tritium pellet. The tubes will accept a 3mm x 23mm tritium vial, which can be purchased on CPF from MERKAVA.
    "
    It's still a great deal after modification ,)

    BE WELL .. GH

    Thanks for the excellent review, Griffin! I'm going to pick up a few of these glow fobs. I have a great use for them. And it sounds like they are of good quality and bang-for-the-buck.

    Nice one GRIFFINHAWKS, gotta keep checking in to see if they've arrived yet and caught your review. Nice pics as usual, definitely getting the conversion kit(s).

    Scared of missing them though, if you see them on the store can you fire me a message either here or BB? Would be much appreciated.:bounce:

    If they were Tritium, I'd be buying a handful of them. Any chance of a Trit version happening?

    I just ordered 2 fobs today from J.S. Burly - and I'm stoked to get them!

    Although I was not offered a menu option to choose the metal in black or in grey .... as the photo description shows. I would prefer black for both of mine. But grey is acceptable as a 2nd option.

    Any take on that, Jon?
