We use ASTM Certified Domestic 6Al/4V titanium, which is 50% more expensive than consumer grade titanium, to insure maximum quality and consistency. Many marketing wonks throw around "aerospace grade" like it's going out of style. Aerospace grade means the material is qualified for use in aircraft applications, and it's not aerospace grade unless it's Certified. Certified means the material conforms to stricter material standards and is NIST traceable: the product has complete quality documentation all the way back to where it was mined from the earth.
ADJUSTING CLIP TENSION:
Check out the video at the top of the page for general guidance on adjusting pocket clip tension
- Remove the clip and install it in reverse, with the clip sticking out into the air
- Make sure the clip is clamped tightly between the tailcap and the body, like a vise.
- Grip the free end of the clip, near the bend, and gently bend the clip further.
- Put some masking tape around the body so you don't scratch it
- Remove the clip and install in the normal direction and you are all set
IMPORTANT (Installing your clip)
- First, the o-ring must be removed to install the clip. Replace the o-ring after installation.
- Second, the clip will scratch the anodize finish if it's allowed to rotate during installation.
- If you scratch your light during installation you didn't read this bright red text.
