The Night-Ops Flashlight Mod-U-Lok™ holder was designed to allow the operatorto securely hold many of the most popular issued personal tactical lights with a1.25" diameter bezel and a 1" diameter body. This holder is recommended foroperators to carry their tactical lights in a bezel down carry mode however it will work in a bezel up configuration. This holder features Blackhawk 's new patent pending "Mod-U-Lok™" belt mounting attachment system. It allows the end usert o mount the holder without having to strip accessories off of a duty or personal belt. Additionally the "Mod-U-Lok™" will allow the holder to be mounted at various angles for user comfort and for ease of rapid deployment of the tactical light. An optional Blackhawk S.T.R.I.K.E. platform can be purchased separately that will attach to the holder as well for mounting on to any MOLLE vest or similar platform attachment option.
Fits My Uprgraded C2 Perfectly and Securely
After reviewing and examining a number of flashlight holders including those offered by Surefire, I took a chance on this one after reading the reviews and boy am I pleased. It holds my upgraded C2 perfectly WITHOUT the rubber retainer and so far HAS NOT MARRED THE LIGHT like some Surefire holders will do. Deployment is simple from Bezel-Down mode and it stows my Z27 lanyard wrapped at the top just perfectly. A properly fitted lanyard is a MUST with any Blackhawk makes good stuff!
Blackhawk Flashlight Holder
So far, so good. I'm using it in conjunction with a Streamlight product because I have gone through 2 of their junk holders in little more than a year. Very unhappy with their holder. The light fits perfect in the Blackhawk and seems easier to draw than the holder intended for the light. The Blackhawk's little rubber strap tore off the first day but does not seem to be necessary to hold the light in place.

A perfect fit for the Streamlight Strion LED. I also removed the rubber retainer strap since the Streamlight snaps firmly into the holder and I too wear gloves. Also the flashlight holder firmly grips the belt after being attached to the belt. Helps stop that belt attachments creep about. Another fine Blackhawk product!
Good for everyday use
I use this product everday. I remove and replace my flashight from the holder at least 10 times a day. I bought the holder and quickly removed the rubber retainer strap. I am usually wearing goves which makes it hard to quickly unbuckle and remove the flashlight. The resistance the holder itself applies to the flashlight is more than adequate. I am climbing in and out of tight places and jumping up and down constantly. I have yet to have my flash light fall out. I like the fact that this holder doesn't use any type of nylon or velcro. Those types of holders only last me about 6 months, if I'm lucky. It also gives you the option to use it on a 2" LEO belt or a smaller belt. I've only used this one for about 2 months, but I've had absoulutly no problems. I recommend this product to anyone who needs a good quality holder for their flash light. Just make sure your light fits before you buy it.
Exactly what I was after
I ordered this to replace a simple nylon flashlight holder on my belt. I carry a Streamlight Strion and needed something that would make it quick and accessible. This is absolutely fit the bill and locks the light in place very tightly without the use of the rubber strap. My only beef is that it is wider than I would like on my belt, as the real estate on a belt is in short supply, but for its functionality this is easily over-looked. I strongly recommend this to any LEO looking for a quick deployment light that locks up tight. It should be noted also that the Mod-U-Lok attachment on a belt clamps down very tightly. You will not be able to adjust the position of the light holder once it is on. Sort-of a blessing and a curse. But it helps prevent my radio holder from sliding around to the rear.
