Default Re: Dust caps for dummies!

Just to note, I was wrong about the inside.
They hang on a LOT better if you cut the inside off.
The green ones also work very well as a flashlight in a pinch, I lost my truck key in the snow at 2am and I wouldn't have found it without the laser + dust cover.

I dont think the poster is claiming to have figured this out on his own. Hes just posting the information because its long buried in the forum.

I wish I had seen this when I first joined this forum. I ordered 2 on ebay for the same price as 20 on DX. I did order a pack of green last week for $2 so I'm happy with that.

Just thought I'd bump this thread so people can see it

I wish I could get some of those blue tailcaps I want some for a Aurora c6 and as caps. They are flat on the back so they look nicer (to me) and can help non-tailstanding lights to tailstand.
