Hello, All,

I purchased a Strion and while I think it is a great light, I believe it lacks in the grip department. Where can I obtain a "sleeve", rubberized or other that would fit over the flashlight tube to enhance grip and girth as well. I am not really interested in increasing girth mor than 1/8" but I do want something that will substantially improve grip, especially when wet...

Thanks A Bunch

Radiator/coolant/heater hose. It's a bit thick, but it works. A drop of superglue between the hose and body will hold it in place if the friction coefficient isn't enough.

Hey thanks a lot for the reply, Iwill check that out, as long as it thickens the tube no thicker than the head, I'll use it...

I have also had success using a bicycle inner tube. I have done this with my streamlight sl-20. I would guess that you could get a road tire inner tube and cut it to the correct size.
