i have always used zip ties to hold my pressure pad for my PEQ but i was wondering if there are any better ways out there.
if you also rue a surefire weapon light with the plug in tail cap such as the m600 you can look into the dual pressure pad that snaps onto your rail here
There are other options that allow the pad to snap onto the rail - I'll try to find links........
Thanks. Unfortunately I don't run any of those lights on my weapon.
If you have full size rail covers and not the ladder type you can just put the tape switch between the top and a side rail. It fits flush with the rail covers and stays in place, you can also put most of the cable in there too which helps keeping it from snagging. I've been doing this for a few years and haven't had any problems yet and to me the switch is easier to use, at least a more nature movement.
