Kyberlight Top Pieces (Emitter Pieces)
Kyberlight top pieces slide over the top of the emitter area and are secured to the hilt with one or two screws. Unlike Kyberlight pommels, Kyberlight top pieces are not threaded. Kyberlight top pieces come in 9 designs (select models are available in multiple colors).  The designs range from a classic, slanted emitter style top piece called Kepler to ‘devil horns’ crossguard top piece named Red Dwarf Accessory.

Kyberlight Sleeves
Kyberlight sleeves slide over the top of the hilt, changing the color and texture of the middle grip section of the lightsaber hilt. Kyberlight sleeves come in 13 designs ranging from black, silver, and copper, to metallic purple and even a woodgrain pattern.

Kyberlight Pommels and Coupler
Kyberlight pommels are threaded and attach to the bottom of the Kyberlight lightsaber hilt near the speaker. Kyberlight offers 8 different pommel designs and one Dual Saber Connector Accessory. Kyberlight pommels are compatible with SOME, but not all Saberforge lightsaber hilts. Likewise, some Saberforge pommels and couplers are compatible with Kyberlight.

Kyberlight Blades
Kyberlight offers 4 different types of lightsaber blades: standard, day blade, (5 color options), decorative flat acrylic blades (4 styles), and a black ‘lightning effect’ blade called Crack Blade.
