A sturdy and versatile mount than the ones included in conventional bicycle lights.
on May 2, 2012
I am an avid cyclist and I ride my bike everywhere. I have been relying on these mounts to hold my flashlights for a long long time during all my rides and they are very sturdy in holding my flashlights. You can count on these mounts to survive from bashes and bumps on the road with only the exception of the quality of the flashlight your are using. Although conventional bike lights may already include a mounts for them on the handlebar of your bike, the lights are held on by weak and hard plastic that can be susceptible to cracks and other damages in minor or serious abuse on them. Unlike conventional bicycle light mounting include with the light itself, this universal flashlight mount on bicycle can easily absorb shocks from abuse because it is made of hard, flexible and thick rubber. From my experience, using this kind of flashlight mount, I am able to expand your my of choosing from a variety of flashlights at a much cheaper price than conventional bicycle lights sold in stores. I can also find cheaper and brighter flashlights on amazon such as the Trustfire flashlight with a variety of different lumens to accommodate my needs. For example, I went to home depot and bought 2 sturdy industrial flashlight, which are the Coast PX45 and the Rayovac Indestructible Flashlight at around 140-200 lumens. Although both these lights are a little wide for the mount, they both fit perfectly and snugly without falling off even after rough bumps.
In addition, I sometimes mount my flashlight with the rubber torch upside down to accommodate other stuff on top of the handlebar such as a bell, water bottle hold and other big lights. The rubber torch can also be mounted upside down on your handlebar with the flashlight coming from the handlebar instead of the top. Anyway, I will try to find some pictures to explain to everyone. This is a really sturdy mount, I highly recommended as long as your flashlights are not too big such as the one that uses D cell batteries.
