    3mm x 23mm. You also need to purchase the DIY kit if you plan on installing tritium.

    Has anyone tried jamming say 5 sticks of 3x23mm trits in one of these instead of using the DIY kit?

    ^^^ Doesn't work, I already tried it :p

    You can only get 3 sticks in there, and they won't be centered in the housing.

    I wonder what kind of mods can be done to TEC glow fobs? Apparently 5 trits won't work :(. The orange is coming off mine. I like the way it's aging, but if it goes to far I'm going to strip it down and try to use reflective powder on it. Maybe instead of glow build a mini fire kit inside?

    seems like we need a glow fob designed to house 3 tritium sticks or a skinnier version designed to house just one 3mm snugly without the diy kit

    Translation: SOON I will have them perfected, and with luck: by New Years 2013, they will be for sale in the EDCF Forum Store.




    As a major favor to Gnarly, the first run of single-tubes will be Cerakoted in Orange.

    Stainless would be most likely. The problem is that if we design a tritium-only housing there is a limited market and the price would not be worth the risk of manufacture in Ti. The glow fobs are nice because we can sell to anyone as a stand-alone product. Since we cannot sell tritium, we would only be selling the housing which is not really a product. It is more of a boutique item that we could only sell to groups like EDCF and CPF. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I am not sure we could sell thousands which is what we have to make to keep the cost down.

    My $0.02 FWIW
