Attaches the Planet Bike Blinky "3" 3-Led Rear Bicycle Light securely to the rear taillight mount on a Topeak Explorer rack. Allows the rear light to be set to the proper angle and keeps it from vibrating around (lost the first rear blinky I purchased due to it vibrating off the rack when using the clip mount included with the light). It would have been better (and less expensive) for me to purchase the Planet Bike 3018-1 Rack Blinky 5- 5 LED Tail Light with Rack Mount and Batteries which includes the rack mount hardware.

Works great. I've used it for several thousand road-miles with a superflash. You do need to have a rack that is designed for tail light mounting to use it. The mount has held up well and the light is much more visible on the back of the rack instead of the seatpost. PB should include this with the light, but it is well worth $5.

I bought this to attach my BP tail light to my Topeak Super Tourist rack. The hole pattern in the bracket exactly matches the hole pattern on the rack's bracket. All good there, though just a note that the bracket in this situation ends up reversed....the light clips in snugly, fortunately.

However, the PB bracket comes with zero instructions. OK, it's not rocket science to figure out, but I do think that any product that needs to be installed should at least come with a diagram. Next, fasteners: while there are four holes in the bracket, you get two bolts, two lock washers, two nuts, and an assortment of washers in various sizes. No idea what the extra washers are meant for. And I guess with four holes I might have gone with four bolts/nuts/lock washers. I can always go to the hardware store to fill the vacuum that nature abhors.

Last point: aim is very critical with any light, and especially with LED lights which are very directional. The seat post bracket that PB supplies with their lights allows for this adjustment, but the rack bracket does not, so you may end up with a misaligned tail light.

So maybe my bike racks (two different brands, two different bikes) are anomalies, but if I mounted the bracket so that the light slid "down" into it (i.e. the bracket tab was downwards), there was just very little clearance between the bottom of that tab and the tire. Soooo just flipped it "upside down" so the tab pointed up. Much more clearance. The Planet Bike 3 LED light snapped in securely even upside down, so I'll just take my chances that a light slips out. To the other reviewer that said there were bonus washers & stuff, nope. I got exactly what was in the photo. Bracket, 2 bolts, two flat washers, two locking washers, two nuts.

But worth it for not having to "gerry" rig a mount to a rack.
I mounted this on my Surly Nice Rack and it works awesomely. You can't use the included nut though, but the boss on the rack is threaded, and while tight, it works wonderfully. Very solid, albeit subtle, feeling when I cut my Superflash on for the morning commute.

Fit nicely on my Public rack. No problems mounting, hardware worked fine. Snug fit- no risk of falling.

Sturdy, easy to attach, works exactly as advertised and holds the Planet Bike Taillight securely to the rear rack on 2 of our bikes. Works best when the bracket can be mounted to the extreme end of the rack or by re-tasking the rear reflector bracket/arm as a mounting point. On one bike, we have a welded steel one-piece rack/basket that has a projection over the mounting point (similar to Wald 520 Rear Baskets 13.5" x 6.25" x 11" Silver.109227). This condition required that I remove the face of the light (as if to replace the batteries), mount the back portion of the light to the bracket, and then re-install the front portion of the light. This is a slight hassle, but once the light is mounted we just leave it in place unless we feel the need to remove it when locking the bike in public.

I bought this bracket to fit my Tubus Logo Evo rear rack. The bracket fits fine, but I had to flip it upside down because the rear fender was in the way. I have a Surly Ogre with Planet Bike Cascadia 29er fenders. The fenders can't get much closer to the tires (29x2.15") so my only option was the use this bracket upside down (as other reviewers have also done).

I'm a big fan of the Superflash tail lights, so simply using this bracket upside down is not a big deal. I'm confident the light won't fall out of the bracket. But it would be nice to see Planet Bike make another version of this bracket that doesn't hang down as low. Instead of the "T" shape of this bracket, maybe an "I" shape with only the three bolt holes along the top of the bracket and the clip for the light moved up as much as possible.
