    Hi,

    I have the shockwave LED and the rubber cover/ring that goes around the plastic lens is loose. Whats a good glue for attaching this back to the plastic part?

    Attached is a picture just in case you have no idea what I am talking about :)

    I see no one responded. Did you figure this out? I have the same problem. I think a glue that holds both plastic and rubber will be a challenge to find.

    I just ran across this forum which is why my reply to the original message is delayed.
    If I were using glue to reattach the rubber boot, I would probably use AquaSeal. It is recommended for almost all things scuba that need to be glued. Another glue you could try is "Black Widow" available from Honda Goldwing Parts & Honda Goldwing Accessories - Honda Goldwing Parts & Honda Goldwing Accessories. I used some to attach a new left handgrip on my motorcycle. When you apply it, you have 6 seconds to set the two pieces together. Please note...*6 seconds*....NOT 7 seconds.
    The rubber boot came off my lens and I simply used a cable tie around it pulling it as tight as I could. It has been holding for years.

    I tried superglue on mine and it didnt work. Im going to get away from Princeton Tec Products after having problems with this light and the big 8 cell floodlight.

    3 wraps of duct tape over the bezel and then slam the rubber boot over it.... Done!

    Or contact PT and maybe they'll send you a replacement piece that doesn't come apart. Other than that I'd bet on the duct tape over glue.
