    Hello

    How old is it?

    The Lightforce distributors in the UK, Ruag are really helpful and I am sure will fix it for you, as Lightforce have a pretty well respected warranty.

    You can contact RUAG on

    I recently got a wiring from them FOC as a replacement, I sent an email to Lightforce international (email on their website) who passed it on to Ruag to send. They were very helpful, although the replacement wire was the same as the original - i.e. likely to break again.

    Awesome lamps, but I do wish they would make the wire they use not so brittle.

    If out of warranty, don't force the handle apart
    1. Remove reflector and bulb, remove bottom of handle
    2. Drill out the pop rivet holding the bulb holder in place
    3 Remove bulb holder, double check but the rear mounted switch is a push fit, front switch usually has a collar that unscrews, you should now have access to wiring which can be pulled through and replaced,
    4. Assemble in reverse order, replace pop rivet, go lamping

    Thanks mate

    I suspect it's out of warranty as my made had it unused for a year before I got it ( unwanted crimbo pressie )

    so your reply is probably my best bet

    cheers
