Switchback S Backup (small) - THYRM®

R 650.00

The SwitchBack® S Backup Flashlight Ring turns your Surefire® compact flashlight into a flexible tactical tool.We’ve improved on our original design to fit the latest “EDC” models while remaining compatible with most Surefire E-Series legacy Backup flashlights. 



The SwitchBack S Backup Flashlight Ring enhances your compact flashlight, optimizing ergonomics for searching and shooting.
  • Securely mounts between the tailcap and body of the flashlight.
  • Rigid retention ring helps reliably deploy and index flashlight from both pockets and pouches.
  • Shoot using a natural two-handed grip (the SwitchBack Technique).
  • Employ all traditional low-light techniques such as Neck Index, Modified FBI, and Harries.
  • Positively retain the light when drawing a firearm, reloading, and malfunction clearance.
Designed in collaboration with Chris Costa, Costa Ludus.
The SwitchBack S Backup comes with two o-rings.  See below for compatible lights and recommended o-ring to use.
Note that the E1B- Backup MaxVision comes with a shorter tail cap so that this flashlight cannot be activated with the knuckle in the SwitchBack Technique.  Instead, users turn the light on with a finger, then can modify the position of the light using the SwitchBack.

The SwitchBack S Backup is not compatible with lights larger than 0.830 inches (2.1082 cm) in diameter.  Have a 1-inch diameter light? Check out the SwitchBack Large 2.0. Looking for a 1.12 inch inner diameter Flashlight Ring? Try the SwitchBack DF.
Designed and manufactured in the USA.
