Make my day (a little brighter): the Flashlight Speed Holster is designed for torch quick draws with left/right-hand mounting, a triple battery compartment and three size adapters.

Gorillatorch

Gorillatorch

Hot on the tentacles of the Gorillamobile, the Gorillatorch is a 65 lumen LED flashlight on a tripod; it comes with magnetized feet and rubberized surfaces to prevent scratching.

Screw Key
