Greetings Tacticlip® fans,
Here's a creative hack:
Using the cleverly placed hole in the Tacticlip®, you can turn your tactical hair clip into an oil lamp. Here's how to do it, or watch the video below:
- First thread a small string (6 inches will do) through the little hole in the Tacticlip®
- Then soak the bottom end of the string in olive oil (1/4" will do)
- Once you light the string's tip, which is sticking out of the little hole, the olive oil 'fuel' will be drawn up and consumed by the flame.
I just did this last night as a part of a test (we test and re-test a lot). The flame was still burning after 20 minutes.
Here's the video demonstrating how I use the "wick holder" function on the Tacticlip®:
Do note: Your Tacticlip's finish may have some cosmetic blemishes after you essentially light it on fire. Most things do. But it will still function just fine.

This seemingly normal hair clip keeps getting cooler, doesn't it?
All the best,
