Thyrm has a new thingamawhatsit out — we've liked their previous releases, let's see how this one holds up to abuse.

Here's what we know.

Thyrm is pleased to announce the launch of The SwitchBack Backup Click, expanding the SwitchBack line to the EB1/EB2 SureFire Backup lights equipped with click-type switches.

The SwitchBack Backup Click turns your compact flashlight into a flexible tactical tool.

We've improved on our original SwitchBack Backup Tactical design to offer a SwitchBack Backup Click with a slightly larger diameter to fit more Surefire Backup lights.

The SwitchBack Backup Click is for SureFire Backup Click Tailcaps only; NOT compatible with Tactical (non-clicking) Tailcaps.

“Our customers have been asking for a SwitchBack that works with the click-switch equipped EB1/EB2 backups, especially the new 300 lumen EB1 Backup that SureFire released this year.  We are pleased to meet their needs and offer the new SwitchBack Backup Click in all colors starting this month.  You can find them at your favorite domestic and international retailers and at”

Designed with Chris Costa of Costa Ludusthe SwitchBack securely attaches to tactical flashlights and provides faster deployment, better retention, and an enhanced shooting grip for low-light techniques. Available in 3 colors (Black, Tan, and Grey), SwitchBacks are designed and made in the USA.

About Thyrm in their own words:

Thyrm LLC was formed to create innovative products for tactical and wilderness applications.  We specialize in outfitting end users in a wide range of environments, such as military, law enforcement, and outdoor enthusiasts who depend on the field-proven simplicity and efficacy of their gear.

“Unlike other Bay Area garage startups, however, the problems Thyrm is most interested in solving are those that affect people engaged in force of arms professions.

Thyrm involves the entire Frazier family…

Design and testing takes place in Sunnyvale, while production, prototyping and fulfillment takes place in Ohio and Chicago. While the various aspects of the company may be distributed and in some ways “virtual,” all Thyrm products are 100% American-made.

Thyrm is also working on developing devices for military and civilian medical first responders, gathering feedback from those in the field in order to try and solve technical problems to help them be more effective in saving lives.”
