Coleman 2D armor flashlight cuts off, wiggling the switch button brings it back on. there appears to be no access to the button, it's sealed in front (on bulb end), and sealed from the back (battery end). Any ideas on how to access the switch?

Surefire 6p I was changing the battery in my Surefire 6P flashlight. The back end that has the push button slipped out of my hand and fell in the console of my car. No big deal....at least so I thought. I put the batteries as I always have. But it would not work. Could not get the button to depress. The spring is still in the back end. The button appears to be stuck or something I am just not doing right. Can you assist? Thanks in advance


Have you tryed looking for the button? Or you can try WD-40 but make sure that you wipe it down and when the button slipped out did you drop the flash light cause if you did you need to buy a new bulb.

My new flashlight wont stay on


Flashlights of this type are notorious for poor design. I had one where the contact spring at the top broke its connection. Others break the ground wire when the top is unscrewed. Another design flaw is trying to solder a ground connection to the anodized aluminum case - doesn't work. I am replacing the broken ground wires with longer, more flexible ones but that's not a permanent solution. Some LED board case grounds have been repaired by scraping the solder-to-case joint although in one case I had to replace the joint by wedging in a piece of bare copper wire. Hope these tips help.

Can you open the switch end of fenix hl21?


The plastic will break and even if you do get access to that, the issue with the corrosion will still cause problems.

I have a Garrity Industries #06443....AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT.....I cannot figure out how to open the case to change the batteries. I can unscrew the top of the unit to access the bulb. And, I assume that the small, notched end of the unit unscrews to access the batteries. I just cannot open...even with channel locks. So, I want to be sure that is the correct way to access the batteries before i really crnak on it....Thanks for your help. Bill


The notched end of the unit is the lid of the battery cover. It might be cross-threaded. Immerse that end in hot water and then twist holding with a dry towel. Hopefully that should open it.
