Explain it to me like I am 5! I have a shiny new dive light (Orcatorch D550) and the kit comes with a wrist lanyard and a bolt snap. What is the best way to attach both of these items? Is attaching the bolt snap to the lanyard just begging to lose the light? Should I use a split key ring to attach the bolt snap? Do I need to worry about the material of the key ring? Do I need to worry about the lanyard being loose?
I've used a dive light exactly once before and it was borrowed and I kept it on my wrist.
What is it that you are actually trying to achieve? The boltsnap will keep the torch attached to you while you're not using it, and the cord lock on the lanyard will keep it tight on your wrist when you are.
