Originally designed as a Father's Day gift, this Tritium vial holder is perfect for Hikers that want to declare their presence, bicyclists, joggers, or anyone looking for extra flair.
Photographed in a variety of Stainless Steel options, and with several other materials and finishes available, this is the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Simply slide it onto a 1" nylon strap and you're all set. You will need at least one 3mm x 22mm tritium vial (sold separately).
How to install your Tritium Vial
Installation is easy -- simply install your Tritium vial, taking care to center the vial in the grills, and apply glue to both ends of the Hiker Tritium Presence strap attachment. Allow time to dry as directed by the glue you select. Two-part epoxy is recommended, however products like crazy glue should be sufficient.
How to attach to your nylon strap
To attach the strap attachment to your nylon or leather strap simply slide the large opening over the end of your strap. For straps which are already attached, I recommend having a seamstress carefully remove the strap seam, install the strap attachment, and sew the strap back. Alternatively, it's possible to cut the strap and weld it closed with a lighter after installing your strap attachment, however this is not recommended as the results will vary based on your patience and skill level.
Tritium is a low energy beta emitter. It is not dangerous externally (its beta particles are unable to penetrate the skin), but it is a radiation hazard when inhaled, ingested via food or water, or absorbed through the skin. Visit Wikipedia to learn more about Tritium
. Tritium has a short biological half-life in the human body of 7 to 14 days, which both reduces the total effects of single-incident ingestion and precludes accumulation of Tritium from the environment.
