TEN-TAP® Programming for Flexible Lighting Options

Streamlight makes our flashlights for a wide variety of applications, but we understand that not everyone wants the same lighting options. Do you like most of the features of a flashlight, but not the pre-set programs? Now, with our TEN-TAP® Programming, you can reprogram the light from the standard default option. Reprogramming is easy and can be done from anywhere – with just a few quick taps of the switch you can change the lighting to fit your needs and how you’ll be using it.

With those lights that feature TEN-TAP® Programming, you can choose from three user-selectable programs. Depending on the model of the light you have, you will have one of the following TEN-TAP® Programming options:

Option 1 (As seen in lights like the ProTac HL®, Scorpion® HL, ProTac® 1L, and PolyTac®):

  1. High/Strobe/Low (factory default)
  2. High only
  3. Low/High

Option 2 (Used in lights like the 4AA ProPolymax®):

  1. High/Low/Strobe (factory default)
  2. High only
  3. Low/High

Option 3 (Used in lights like the ProTac HL® Headlamp):

  1. High/Medium/Low (factory default)
  2. High only
  3. Low/Medium/High

General Operation

Some Streamlight flashlights feature a programmable switch with momentary operation (light press or tap) and constant on operation (press until click). Lights are shipped from the factory in the default program.

As an example, to turn on each lighting mode within the ProTac® HL’s default program:

  • High: Tap and hold; click to lock on; click again for off.
  • Strobe: Fast double-tap (within 0.4 seconds) and hold; click to lock on; click again for off.
  • Low: Fast triple-tap (within 0.4 seconds per tap) and hold; click to lock on; click again for off.

For specific information on your light’s TEN-TAP® Programming, please see the instructions included with your light.

Accessing Other Programs

With lights featuring the TEN-TAP® programmable switch, you are able to select one of three different programs to meet your lighting application needs. To change to the next program, starting from the “Off” position, tap the switch rapidly 9 times (within 0.4 seconds per tap) and hold it down the 10th time. Continue holding the switch until the light turns off (approximately 1 second), and then release the switch. Repeat this pattern to change to the next program.
