Pretty easy to flip cap on and off for me
It certainly isn't like the cover on a scope but the rubber/plastic is malleable enough for me to flip the red lens on and off with 2 fingers at minimum. Using 3 or more just makes it easier. I was expecting it to be almost permanent based on previous reviews but I like it. The amount of filtering is OK by me. If you have been sleeping or in the dark for a while you will still be able to see quite clearly. The infra red is an interesting option. With IR goggles you'd have a distinct advantage. Added a couple pictures to show it flipped on and off. Also with the red lens on I can see the night sites. With white light the sights are overpowered and I have to use the sights in silhouette.

Great for low light ops
Fits tightly on poly tac light. Keeps from waking the Mrs for night time fridge raids. Not much else to say.

Try the Flip-up Streamlight Filter
This does not slip on my TLR style light wery well. You must work it on. Fits a regular 501b flashlight better. So as a flip or hinged type filter, it is harder to push the lense on. UPDATE: This filters too much light and is not bright enough. Try the flip up Streamlight #85115 red and 85117 green filters. They are much easier to use and give you the light you would want. They are a little larger but, a round of electrical tape fixes that problem. Reviews a year ago showed problems, but now appear to be corrected.

Will do in a pinch.
Function is great, but the actual fit is not quite as good as I expected. I don't believe its going to come off, but it is a but loose. Construction was just a but lacking, and that's why I gave it 3 stars.

Quality could be better
Does what it suppose to, but very dark in green. Would work better with the TLR1 HP "600 lumens" vs the TLR1S "150 lumens"

Great lens filter for hunting, until I realized that the green plastic was gone halfway through...
This green lens was cool until the first time I brought it hog hunting and the lens fell out... Maybe it was just a defective part. I own several Streamlight products and this has been the only one so far that has been a letdown. Hoping they will replace. Will Update if they do.

Not Usable...
This Lens Green lens cover was recommended for the Streamlight 69219 HPL, And is ABSOLUTELY useless. First you have to remove the parabolic lens to install this green lens and your light projection goes from an awesome 250/300yd range to barely able to light a wall 20 ft away. Not on my list for recommendation.

Reduces light considerably. Paired with TLR-1 HL and was expecting it to be brighter due to how bright the light is (630 Lumen)

Ir lens is useless
Put this on my tlr 1 hl and it all but blocks the light completely. In complete darkness my night vision scope will only see the light within 15' and it is VERY dim even at that range

IR Model
My review is for the IR filter version of this product. I have a 650 lumen light and when putting the filter on I was barely able to make out a 12" circle on the side of a house roughly 20' away. I was using PVS-14 model NODS and it was very disappointing to see this filter perform so poorly. Even when pointing the light at my feet there was hardly any illumination. If you have seen a dedicated IR flashlight and are expecting anything like that from this filter you will be returning the product like I did.

Doesn't fit TLR-4, extremely loose, guess I missed that in the reviews. Dims your light A LOT, renders the -4 worthless (I sent that light back, too dim even without the filter) I'd recommend the HL models with 800 lumens ONLY to still get semi adequate output from this

STREAMLIGHT has GREAT Products! A-
For my TLR-2 the outside of the slip on lens gets in the way of the laser at the bottom. for TLR-1 without the laser it would work great, just for the ones with lasers it doesnt work so well. that being said its a great product, quality, fits great.

Works great, but not on LEDs
Nice little IR filter. Be warned most LEDs put out very little IR so this wont magically turn your LED flashlight into some wonderful IR illuminator, but it will turn your incandecent bulbed lights into a nice IR source.

Didn’t turn bright weapon lights into IR Illuminators
This filter did not work out for me. Though it fit both my TLR1-HL and Protac 2 rail mount lights, it only produced an IR signature about 2’, which isn’t nearly sufficient for use with night vision.

Fits well but interferes with the laser
I got the red & green kit for use on my older model Streamlight TLR-2 light/laser combo. It fits snugly, but the exterior of the boot partially blocks the laser. I cut out a slot to allow the laser to pass then used electricians tape to make sure the lens doesn't fall off. The lens clarity is excellent and I can't discern any reduction in brightness.

functions correctly
The IR window attaches perfectly to a TLR-1 HL tactical light, with no visible light leakage detectable. I can't speak to how durable the rubber hinge is or how it would hold up to heavy use, because I am not putting this through heavy use, but the rubber seems sturdy enough (could the rubber crack or fail later on? don't know). I use this as supplemental illumination for a PVS-14 monocular to spy on wildlife at night, and even though the visible light output of the Streamlight is 800 lumens (blinding), when passed through the IR filter the IR lighting effect is understandably quite diminished compared to the unfiltered visible light output as viewed through the night vision monocular. Viewed through the monocular, the IR-filtered Streamlight will illuminate a darkened room the way a weak flashlight would, but I can't say how far it would penetrate a pitch-black outdoor scene, which I don't have around here. But if you make the light source brighter than this, then you might create a faint dull-red glow light signature, since IR filtration is never 100%. If you stare into the IR filtered Streamlight while in pitch darkness, you can in fact see a faintly visible dull-red glow if you are quite close up to the light, but probably not from across a room. Can't say how this would meet the needs of a professional who relies on night vision in critical situations.

For all of those wondering if it fits the Protac Rail Mount 2, it does. The lens does what it says it should do, so I can't say anything bad about it. I couldn't find a solid answer on if it fit the Protac or not, so I gave it a shot, and now it's sitting on mine with no issue.

Does the basics well
I bought the green Streamlight flip lens (69117) for my ProTac HL LED headlamp, which has a 30mm bezel, and it fits perfectly. It flips open without too much fuss and closes the same. As pointed out by many other reviewers, the lens filters out about 75% of the 635 lumens that my headlamp is rated for, so if you are looking for something that can illuminate out to 200 yards or so, you're better off buying a true green LED flashlight - I've purchased the Odepro KL52 Plus for that purpose and I've been quite happy with it. However, if you have a relatively high lumen flashlight to mount the flip lens on and are looking for something that can provide enough green light to help you navigate your way through the woods, that preserves your night vision, and doesn't spook your prey, this will likely fit the bill. One thing to note is that this does not cast green light like a green LED. While the flip lens casts a green light, if you look at the lens from an angle while the light is on (Obviously without looking directly into the light), you'll see more of a strong aqua color instead of green. My reason for bringing this up is that I'm not sure if the filter cuts the white light down to that 540 nm sweet spot that most hunters are looking for. Unfortunately, I won't know this for certain until I get into the field.

The lens is clear and the poly ring mount is tight fitting and seems to ignore heat. No light leakage and lets my headlamp do it’s job flawlessly. Using on the Streamlight ProTac HL 61307. Very happy with my purchase.

Pass on this...
It doesn't throw any IR light when it's capped, but you'll see the glowing end of tac lights if you're wearing NV. If you don't have NV and you use it the cap smothers white light coming out of your tac light. Great way to make a tac light useless with or without NV.
