The SwitchBack dials your full-size SureFire Flashlight up to 11 adding a pocket clip, and optimizing ergonomics for searching and shooting. Developed to enhance your shooting need with a backup light.
After taking a look at all the options available for flashlights and weapon-lights we realized that there was a big disconnect: Weapon-lights are great for shooting, but they create a lot of liability when searching. Flashlights are better for searching, but they require awkward grips to align the flashlight and firearm. SwitchBack allows the user to rapidly deploy the flashlight for searching or single-hand shooting techniques, but then reorient the flashlight for use with a two-handed grip just like a weapon-light. We also made sure users could perform reloads and clear malfunctions without having to stow or hang the light. Overall, the SwitchBack allows military, law enforcement and responsible citizens to deploy their flashlights faster, search more safely, and shoot better, without having to own a drawer full of illumination tools.
The SwitchBack fits between the flashlight’s body and the tail cap, making it secure regardless of impact, moisture or heat/cold changes.
The SwitchBack is black and includes an optional o-ring, which may reduce rotation on some models of flashlights. Flashlight not included.
Designed in collaboration with Chris Costa.
