Improve Your Ability to Function Effectively in the Dark
(March 2003) Battle Carry Lanyard now available for Surefire E2 and E2e Executive flashlights!
Do you want a simple and inexpensive tactical illumination system to employ with your handgun for home defense, concealed carry or police patrol that doesn't occupy and tie-up both of your hands?
If you already own or are considering buying a Surefire flashlight, our Battle Carry Lanyard offers you capabilities similar to a dedicated handgun mounted lighting system.
Our lanyard system allows you to employ your Surefire flashlight in a manner that keeps your support hand free. You can promptly clear handgun stoppages, perform combat/tactical reloads, grab your K9's harness, open doors, key a microphone, give hand signals, telephone police or perform other actions without pause to juggle your flashlight while your gun is drawn.

You're able to perform these tasks without delay because our lanyard allows you to lash your Surefire flashlight directly to the palm of your support hand. Properly fitted, your fingers are not required to maintain grasp of the light. In most cases you have sufficient manual dexterity to perform many tasks that require the use of only one hand.
The Battle Carry Lanyard promotes economy of movement. You don't have to clamp your flashlight between your thighs, wedge it under your armpit, stuff it in one of your pockets, stick it in your mouth or lay it down somewhere. This capability allows you to tackle a problem that needs your immediate attention without fumbling around or wasting time.
If you're in the middle of a task and a threat appears all you have to do is stop what you're doing and respond. You don't have to clumsily grab for your flashlight, drop it or abandon it. If you need light, your flashlight is properly located in your hand so that all you have to do is press the tail cap switch with your thumb.
The Battle Carry Lanyard works best with the Harries two-handed handgun-flashlight shooting technique. The Harries technique is similar to the Weaver Stance, except the back of the support hand is pressed firmly against the back of the shooting hand. This technique enables the support hand to operate the flashlight while simultaneously providing isometric stability to the shooting hand.

Our flashlight/lanyard system is safer than a handgun mounted flashlight because you don't have to point the muzzle of your handgun toward anyone perhaps a family member when illumination is needed to determine if a person is a threat or not.
If you already own or are considering buying a Surefire 6P Original, 6R Rechargeable, 9P Original, D2/D3 Defender or G2 Nitrolon flashlight, you can order the Battle Carry Lanyard assembly directly from us. You'll receive a Surefire Z26 welded tail cap lanyard ring and two lanyards. Cost is $11.99 plus a modest shipping and handling fee. All profits go to support this web site. Click on the appropriate PayPal button (below) to purchase Battle Carry Lanyard Assembly for Surefire 6P / 6R / 9P / D2 / D3 / G2 Flashlight using your credit card, debit card or checking account. (Note: the Z26 tail cap lanyard ring does not fit the E2 Executive model.)
We provide you two lanyards, not because they wear out quickly (they don't), but because this is tactical hardware you train with and depend upon to work when needed. We believe you should have a spare lanyard that's ready to install in case of a problem.
If you own a Surefire 6Z, 9Z, C2, C3, G2Z, Z2 or Z3 Combatlight or M2/M3 Millennium Combatlight, don't fret.
