Clips/clamps to attach a flashlight to my door

Post by izakjbrt » 13 Oct 2019 19:36

I am looking for some advice as to what clamp or clip I can use if I want to attach/store my led lenzer mag light size flashlight next to me in the door.

I bought 28mm terry clips from builders and that worked for about a day before the one clip snapped in half.

Anyone with an idea where I can buy some clamps or clips that might help and if it’s terry clips, then a lot stronger than the crap they sell at builders

I suspect in the long term the weight and vibration will br3ak the door trim panels in the long term.

However you can get steel clips at decent bolt and nut shops.

It’s not a maglite, it’s a led lenzer . Just looks like the maglite. Only comes with a belt clip

Dankie man. Ek kyk bietjie na die quickfist clamps, maar dit is darem maar baie vir “clamps”
