Tips and Usage Guides

Do not use the rear of the Paddle Shifter thumb rest to activate the “constant on” function. The rear section of the Paddle Shifter thumb rest was designed to give traction and more surface area for your support side thumb to use when pushing forward to activate the “Momentary On” function. Pushing downwards on the rear section could result in damage to the Paddle Shifter and/or weapon light.

Never reholster with the light on. Reholstering your pistol with a Paddle Shifter equipped light in the constant-on position can result in damage to the Paddle Shifter, weapon light and/or holster. Only reholster when the weapon light is set to the off position.

Avoid reholstering on an angle. The Paddle Shifter was designed to follow the mounting hardware of the weapon light. To reduce the chance of snagging the paddle on the exterior of your holster, make sure to reholster straight down, without running the egde of your firearm against the holster.

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Start by dropping your extraction tool bit into a screwdriver. Carefully wedge the bit underneath the stock SureFire paddle and begin to slowly rotate the tool left and right, to walk the paddle up and off the switch armature. Be careful not to pry on the armature itself when extracting.

2. Slide the 2-piece installation tool underneath the switch armature. This provides a support and flat surface to press the Paddle Shifter onto.

3. Place the Paddle Shifter onto the switch armature and push it into place. Be sure that the Paddle Shifter is fully seated and making complete contact with switch armature.

4. Remove the installation tool by carefully pulling the two pieces apart. Be careful not to impact or move the paddle shifter while doing so.

Your Paddle Shifter is now installed in a testing capacity. Try out the form and function and confirm fitment with your equipment before proceeding. If you are ready to complete the installation, proceed to the next step.

5. Wedge the spanner bit underneath the Paddle Shifter by slowly rotating the tool left and right, to walk the paddle up and off the switch armature.

6. Slide the 2-piece installation tool underneath the switch armature. This provides a support and flat surface to press the Paddle Shifter onto.

The next step requires the use of the included Super Glue adhesive. Please use caution when working with Super Glue. Gloves are highly recommended.

7. Gently apply a light layer of adhesive onto the Paddle Shifter armature channel. You don't need a lot of glue. Do not over apply.

8. Quickly position the Paddle Shifter onto the switch armature and push it fully into place. It helps to maintain forward pressure for a few seconds. Be sure that the Paddle Shifter is fully seated and making complete contact with switch armature.

9. Remove the installation tool by carefully pulling the two-pieces apart. Be careful not to impact or move the paddle shifter while doing so. Allow the adhesive to sit and cure for a few minutes before use.

10. Inspect Paddle Shifter and make sure it is fully seated and has not been knocked out of place.
