Tough: Built from aircraft grade 6061 aluminum, not stamped stainless steel, or thermoplastic, so it can stand up to the same punishment that you do.
Light weight: only 1.8oz
Necessary: Superior under brim patented design securely holds the light on the helmet where you put it, where you need it.
Adaptable: Fits most firefighting helmets, both traditional and modern styles. The Blackjack helmet flashlight holder accommodates 4-AA size lights from Pelican, Streamlight, Kohler-Brightstar, and Underwater Kinetics. The Blackjack will also accommodate the new generation of 123 size lithium powered lights from Surefire, and Pelican.
Place the flashlight inside of The Blackjack.
Place the visor in the "Down" position.
Place lens assembly of the light next to down angle of shield. When in correct position the lens assembly of the light will rest in the ear arch of the helmet, directly below the visor mount assembly, with the visor touching the front of the light when the visor is down.
Secure all three setscrews. Caution must be given NOT to OVER TIGHTEN any of the setscrews. The 3-point contact design allows for SNUG screws without penetrating or damaging the material of the helmet brim.
