Default How do you mount your flashlight/laser pressure switch

I have two pressure switches that I am trying to attach to my tango down forward grip.

I have seen people doing it in various ways (double tape, electrical tape, etc). What I can't seem to find anywhere are those extra wide black rubber bands that will hold the pressure switches in place. Does anyone have any ideas? Pictures would be nice as well.

Thanks!

Put two vertical fore grips on the gun but one on the side so you can turn the gun 90 degrees and use sights bolted to the side of the gun.

jk jk I have no idea.

Try cutting a bicycle inner tube of the appropriate size into little cross sections of whatever thickness you think will work. I used to use them on my DIR scuba rig for holding the two backup lights and they stand up to a LOT of abuse. I used about an inch of innertube per band.

Bike tube is an old trick like a custom rubberband.

I would like to give you some words of caution on this.

The laser is a constant on device. It is used for fast acquisition of close targets. Its standard use is NOT momentary on. It should have a on/off switch. You should plan on NOT having two hands on the weapon.

I think those tapeswitch bands come with the Larue FUG ... you might want to check their website to see if they sell them separately.
