Add a Burst of Light to Your Leatherman ARC.

This super slim flashlight backpack can provide up to a sustained 30 minutes of constant discharge before the batteries need a rest. The recovery characteristics are great when using silver oxide batteries (Included). This little flashlight is best for brief use, it's not designed for constant illumination. Give the batteries some time to recover after long bursts, they will recover, don't throw the batteries out!

  • 90 Degree Horizontal Spill: Perfect for checking a bag, checking a fuse, inserting keys into a lock or any task where you need some discreet, close up illumination. 

  • Front facing LED:  The front LED allows you to hold your ARC like a flashlight, with the tool open Flashy illuminates the pliers area. Hold your arc upside down for walking path illumination (gets you more ground coverage due to the large pivot screw on the arc blocking some light).

  • Rear facing LED: Illuminate the ground without removing the ARC from your belt. Due to occlusion, the LEDs do not directly illuminate the folding tools of the ARC.

Above: The LED will not directly light up the folding tools unless there is a nearby surface to reflect light.

Below: the "rear" LED can illuminate the ground while attached to your hip.

  • Batteries Included: 2 High Discharge Silver Oxide Cells Included. (Replace with same type)

  • Gold Plated Touch Buttons: If you run your flashlight "Naked", this has a few advantages: you can lick your finger and touch a button to get the flashlight to run until evaporation (1-3 minutes). If you have really dry hands, we recommend using a "wiping" motion over the pads for a solid activation.
  • Water Resistant Membrane Overlay: For users that use their tools where they might be subjected to splashing / damp pockets, we have included an overlay that should provide some protection. Another advantage of using the overlay is you can activate the flashlight while wearing gloves. Keep in mind this does not make the flashlight "Waterproof". The membrane does require significant activation force so you might find yourself using your finger nail to turn on the LED for extended periods. 

Above: Included Membrane overlay.The backing is by 3M and it is recommended to clean the PCB surface with rubbing alcohol and let the membrane adhesive cure for 24 hours before mounting it on your ARC. See: Pressure Sensitive Adhesives.

  • Screws Included: T6 / 1.5mm Hex mounting screws included.

  • If you have trouble getting the batteries out, fully remove the screws from Flashy and use the small opening to insert a needle or hobby blade to assist in battery extraction.
  • The batteries directly contact the surface of your ARC to complete the series circuit: in our tests the battery cans are the softer material so it should not scuff up your tool. Long term testing has not been done.

  • Mounting Screws Included: Head type and/or screw color may vary from photos. Flashy mounts to the 2 unused mounting holes on the Leatherman ARC.

Please expect up to 1 week lead time for shipping of Flashy. The email you get us saying it's shipped is us making labels in advance.
