Why Should I Invest in a Pressure Switch For an LED Flashlight?

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

COAST's TX40 LED FlashlightWeapon-mounted flashlights are extremely important tactical tools. They allow officers and military personal to properly identify targets before pulling the trigger. There are a variety of mounting methods and manufacturers, including the Picatinny rail.  A Picatinny rail is a standardized mounting bracket. With a mounting system in place, you can also add a pressure switch. The advantage of a pressure switch is that it allows for correct operation, as the user is able to turn the flashlight on and off without removing his or her hand from the barrel of the weapon.

For precise operation, we recommend a combination pressure switch. Law enforcement officers and military personnel are especially keen on combination pressure switches, as they allow for multiple lighting modes. A combination pressure switch can create either momentary or constant light. When a single flash could give your location away, it’s important to have such sophisticated lighting options at your fingertips. The inclusion of a master kill-switch also keeps the flashlight off at unwanted times.
