3FTech M-Lok Light Mount V1: FFFTech/FFFTechnology

A 3D printed M-Lok mount for 1 inch diameter flashlights.

Note; the CAD model shows the front tabs of the retainer do not exactly line
up with the front of the mount. That's because the end result will have you
squeeze the retainer closed, tightening it around the weapon light.

(I already had to explain that once before... might as well type it in here)

Printer Used: Monoprice Maker Select Plus

Filament Used: PLA+

Print Settings:

Extruder: 210C
Bed: 56C
First Layer Print Height: .22mm
Standard Layer Height: .14mm
Wall Thickness: .40mm
Wall Perimeters: 4
Infill: 25%
Infill Pattern: Gyroid
Material Flow: 100%
Support Material Percentage: 18%

Hardware Needed:

2x M3x12 Machine Screws

2x M3x8 Machine Screws

2x M5x10 Hex Socketed Machine Screw/Bolt

2x M-Lok T-Nuts (Be sure both bolt & nut are the same thread pitch.)

Installation:

1) Mount the weapon light base to the preferred M-Lok slot location with the M-Lok
T-Nuts and M5 screws.

2) Slide the flashlight retainer over the mount, then drive in the M3x12 screws
through the front tabs of the retainer, and into the front of the mount.

3) Once both screws are tightened down, slide the flashlight through the front of
the mount until reaching the desired depth to which the user can access the on/off
momentary switch on the flashlight. (See Note 1)

4) Once the light is in the desired position, drive the M3x8 screws through the
retainer, and into both sides of the mount.

5) Check for fitment; the flashlight should be held tight within the mount, and
shouldn't move. (See Note 2)

Notes:

Note 1: The fitment should be pretty tight when inserting the flashlight, and may
need the user to apply pressure downwards and twist in order to get the flashlight
in place. If you attempt to slide the flashlight in first, THEN screw the retainer
front tabs in, you may find it extremely difficult to attach said retainer.

TL;DR Just attach the damn retainer first. Inserting the flashlight may be harder,
but it was a hell of a lot easier this way for me... the guy who actually designed
this...

Note 2: If the flashlight is still too loose, add a layer or two of tape to the
flashlight's grip/handle/tube part thingy.

If it's too tight, specifically to where you cant insert it at all; (It WILL be tight,
just put some muscle in you wimp) sand the inside of the retainer, or upscale the model by .01 - .02%.
