Want to share this with ya'll.

Super cool dude on Instagram hooked me up with a couple extra he had left over. Perfect replacement for the TW open hooks. Now the helmet shock cord functions as both a bungee for tension and a lanyard.

This is a super CHEAP night vision accessory at $10 for a dozen on Amazon. I ordered a dozen so I can run them in my Ops Core bump but I only need two. That leaves 1 set that is up for grabs (three already spoken for).

I'll send them to whoever wants them, paying it forward like how I got mine. Amazon says delivery is Feb 24 - March 16 so it'll be a minute, lol.

Great find and fantastic idea.

I bought some off of ebay awhile ago, they held up well. For bungees I use the black Nite Ize ones you can find at Home Depot.

Cool. I never seen these before by themselves.

I like those Nite Ize biners and used them for a lanyard. I like that this one only has one gate and a hole for the shock cord so my bungee can be my lanyard.

Oh those look handy. Thanks for the link.

Those are excellent clips. Got one with my IR Patrol setup. Took a long while to track down a source, and buy more.
I researched the break strength, and it was something like a good, safe 75 pounds.
The offset gate spring pivot points keep the gate closed very reliably.

This is awesome. I have a couple questions.

First, do they stow when they're not attached to NODs? Either clipped to an ops-core base plate or clipped to one another.

Second, what are you using for the bungee and how are you attaching the carabiner? I can't really see in the picture in the OP. My ops-core bungees have hooks on them, did you use different bungees or cut off the hooks?

The pic is on a TW LTP. Is perfect for it because of how the bungee works on it. You run the cord through the hole, tie a knot, and the knot goes in the T-slot. I’m still waiting to get the ones I ordered for my Ops Core. I’ll probably run the cord through with a short end and heat shrink it together. I was planning to hook the hooks together across the brim.

I think there's one set left. I was holding them for someone but he never claimed them/acknowledged he wanted them. IM where to send.

Just to make sure everyone's clear - I don't have them yet. Amazon says they shipped China post ETA Feb 24 - Mar 16.

Don't worry, I'm going to be gloved up and disinfect the ever living shit out of it all!

Those SF clips from the OP are legit. I bought a 10 pack from amazon too.
Another good use I found is a Helstar 6 “oops” lanyard.

Take a short piece gutted paracord
Fish it through the small hole in the base of the Helstar
Knot the end so it doesn’t pull back out (and sits flush in the base of strobe)
Slide short piece of shrink tube onto paracord
Tie the clip on
Heat shrink tubing overtop of knot at the clip
Baller overkill setup

I did similar for my SF Scout light through the shrouded clicky tailcap.

Pics later tonight if there’s interest.

Ordered these awhile back and received a makeup sponge instead. Amazon wouldn’t allow me return/refund but I guess I’ll give it another shot.

Sorry for the delay. Weekend has a funny way of blurring.

Lanyard is pretty clearly not needed with this Perroz cover but on my Ops Core bump this was perfect looped through the air holes.

I didn’t pull the paracord out of the recessed pocket in the base of the Helstar as I don’t have a means to grab it down in the basement.
I melted the knot before pulling it down inside so there wouldn’t be concern of it untying somehow.

I think it turned out pretty slick.

Some copper wire wrapped tightly around the paracord, then heated with a lighter until the nylon started to fuse.
