I often use Perma-Lok lacing needles, different sizes depending on the cord. There are many folks/vendors that also make lacing needles in stainless steel/aluminum that also work well, or you can make your own improvised versions too.

Ma & Pa gave me an iProtec 1400 zoomable LED flashlight for my birthday, and I used a remnant strand of gutted paracord to tie a Turk's head knot around the grip with a simple wrist loop lanyard to finish. :)
