You Need to Think About the Safety of Others More Than You Need to Think About Fixing Your Flashlight
The Blackjack Flashlight Holder keeps your flashlight securely fastened to your helmet. Built from aircraft grade 6061 aluminum, not stamped stainless steel or thermoplastic, so it can stand up to the same punishment that you do. Its superior under brim patented design securely holds the light on the helmet where you put it, where you need it. It's highly adaptable and fits most firefighting helmets, both traditional and modern styles. Call 888-222-9118 or visit www.blackjackholder.com.
