Guide :Camping, Backpacking & Hiking : 2D Aluminum Flashlight

I am having touble reassembling my Garrity flashlight. It is stainless steel with a rubber grip. There are two metal pieces, one is round with a square cutout in the middle, and the other has prongs coming out the center, it is also round and somehow fits inside the flashlight. The flashlight has a rubber plunger on the bottom to turn it on and off. I need help putting it back together, please.

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.

LED Flashlight Battery Drain Problem


This particular flashlight uses a microchip that consumes the power of the batteries, whether in use or not. Loosen the case to where the batteries go in, so there is no contact with polarity. Or just take the batteries out completely and replace them for actual use. GGBMDB
