Does something like the Cloud Defensive LCS exist for Steiner tape switches? Looking for a more secure way to mount my tape switch than the velcro garbage that comes with the DBAL-A3. Does anything exist besides zip ties? Don’t need a dual device switch, so TAPS doesn’t really make sense in this situation.

I gave up on them. Now I peel off their velcro from the switch, sub in some high quality 3M double stick tape (thin foam core) and then take one wrap around the outside with McNett camo wrap tape, for insurance.

Does everyone else just add a Surefire light and run the dual switch then? This is going on a night vision only gun and I don’t plan on running a white light at the moment.

I like self adhesive medical wrap (vet wrap). Comes in many colors.

I can wrap tight and it holds the switch right where I need it. It protects and manages cables too.



Just dont wrap over the gas block if you blast quickly.

The Magpul Insight switch holder works, if you have Mlok you can fit it on. I don't think it'll fit anywhere but 12/3/6/9 o'clock, though, on just about anything.

I use a lot of the Manta switch holders now, they work fantastic IMHO. Just dug one out and a spare Steiner switch to make sure the hook velcro-backed ones fit in them - they do.

If somebody made that in Multicam Black, all the gun hipsters would buy them out in a heartbeat.

Does the Tangodown Insight option work with the Steiner tape switches?

I have no idea. Another option is to use ranger bands or an inter tube tire to hold down the tape switch.

I've been using the McNet tape to secure my tape switches over the past year. Wish I had started sooner.

The Ergo doesn’t fit the tape switch on the DbalA3.

Good to know. Ordered the Tangodown option. I’ll report back if it works.
