Maglite Flashlight Mod

I saw this somewhere in a powerstroke.org post.

Yesterday I completed it - it's freakin' amazing (and easy).

Here's the link to the instructions, attached is my picture of the final product.

I actually bought two sets of light clips, I read that once your wife sees it, she's going to want one on her side too...

Yep, I'm really happy with the mod. All credit goes to others who first turned me onto it. I tried to find the old thread which I was going to provide for credit but couldn't find it so started a new one...

Thats sweet, those clips are pretty strong. What did you use to mount the clips. I wouldn't want to pull them out when I went to use it

I used machine screws with a nut on the backside. I was worried about the same thing but you'll be surprised on how sturdy this setup is.

Gotcha! So I can pop that plastic cover off and put a washer and nut on the back?

Yep, taking the floor panels off was easy. Taking the side plastic panel completely off wasn't possible but I pryed it away from the wall enough to work on it. Once it pryed it open, I shoved my maglite and a large screwdriver in there to keep it open so I could work on it.

Screw, washer and nut was all it needed. I was going to put some blue loctite on it to keep it from vibrating loose but couldn't find it. I figure if it comes loose it's not a big deal to access it - which it isn't.

Another guy commented on the mod - "Now I have a club AND a flashlight mounted inside my door!"

I feel the same way.

You can also mount the rechargeable Maglights in the same spot!
