THYRM Launches the SwitchBack S

Monday, September 17th, 2018

Fits SureFire’s EDC Lights

Sunnyvale, CA — The THYRM® SwitchBack® is widely considered a must-have flashlight accessory. Now, they have added compatibility for two new SureFire flashlights with the introduction of the SwitchBack S Backup.

THYRM improved upon the design of the original SwitchBack Backup to fit the popular SureFire EDCL1-T and EDCL2-T while retaining compatibility with most legacy E-Series Backup flashlights with click or tactical tailcaps.

The SwitchBack S enhances your compact flashlight, optimizing ergonomics for searching and shooting.

• Securely mounts between the tail-cap and body of the flashlight
• Rigid retention ring helps reliably index and deploy the flashlight from both pockets and pouches
• Shoot using a natural two-handed grip (the SwitchBack Technique)
• Employ all traditional low-light techniques such as Neck Index, Modified FBI, and Harries
• Positively retain the light during reloading, and malfunction clearance

Designed and Made in the USA, the SwitchBack S is in stock and available for purchase at Thyrm.com and at authorized dealers.

THYRM Introduces the CLENS in Dedicated Sheets

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Sunnyvale, CA —

In September 2017, THYRM introduced the CLENS, a revolutionary lens cover for weapon lights. First available in a variety pack to fit many models of lights, consumers requested the ability to order only specific sizes. In response, THYRM now sells the CLENS in three sizes in addition to a variety pack. New items include 18 lenses each to fit the following lights.

SureFire X300U, XH30, Scout Lights
Inforce WMLx

Streamlight TLR, TLR-HL
SureFire G2X, 6PX

Streamlight HL, HL-X
SureFire Fury, Intellibeam

CLENS (pronounced “cleanse”) are heat-resistant clear polymer circles that are cut to fit on a wide range of flashlight and weapon-light lenses. CLENS protects the lens from carbon and other debris that can build up from the use of lights during firearms training. CLENS can be removed to quickly clean a light, rather than having to apply Vaseline before shooting, replace a lens or risk abrasion with lens cleaners.

The CLENS is the collaborative effort of Thyrm and Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics / Sage Instruments. Designed and manufactured in the USA, these new dedicated sheets are now available at Thyrm.com.

Thyrm Launches PyroVault

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Sunnyvale, CA —

The metal fluid lighter has been around since the 1930’s. It’s a beloved piece of Americana. But it’s not without fault. Major complaints include the evaporation of fuel, slippery case and lack of an attachment method. Thyrm addresses these issues and takes the traditional metal lighter into the future with the PyroVault.

“We had a blast designing modern-day armor for the classic, fluid lighter. The goal was to create a shell that retained the ability to use fluids available in remote and austere conditions but adds sealing to keep the elements out and the fluid in.” said THYRM CEO Andrew Frazier. “We also wanted a clip to attach it to gear, and grip surfaces so it doesn’t turn into a bar of soap when it’s wet and dirty.”

The PyroVault fits most Zippo-style inserts including butane torch versions. It’s made of reinforced nylon for toughness and an O-ring provides a waterproof seal. The latch is spring-loaded for one-handed operation. The MOLLE/PALS compatible clip means that your lighter will be right where you need it when you need it.

The PyroVault is made in the USA and available for purchase at Thyrm.com and at authorized dealers.

New Features and Refinements Based on 1000’s of Hours of Use


Sunnyvale, CA — Thyrm introduced the SwitchBack in 2014, dramatically improving the most popular flashlights for military, law enforcement, and civilian use. Features included a pocket clip and a finger ring that provided increased flashlight retention and opened the door for new flashlight techniques.


The SwitchBack 2.0 is the next evolution, incorporating new features and refinements based on 1000’s of hours of use by subject matter experts and customers. New features include:
• stronger pocket clip that also works with MOLLE/PALS webbing

• optimized design to ease installation
• wider thumb rest with traction features
• small crush ribs on the lip that create a custom fit across a broader range of lights

“We spent the last year paying close attention to our customer’s feedback, working with our experts to test dozens of prototypes. We couldn’t be happier with the new design,” said Andrew Frazier, CEO. “As with our other gear, we are proud to design and manufacture the SwitchBack 2.0 in the USA.”

The SwitchBack 2.0 is in stock and available for purchase at Thyrm.com and at authorized dealers.
