    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    This is a really simple item- basically just a quick release mount that lets you use your flashlight as a bike light, but it does the job really elegantly. You use the bottom lever action quick release clip to attach the mount to your handlebars and can then simply press your pocket size flashlight into the expanding top clip. This holds your light firmly in place but easily allows you to just pull the light off and take it with you, (leaving the mount in place on the bars) or you can just as easily take the whole mount as well by just flicking the lever. The mount also allows a small degree of adjustment between the bottom and top fixtures, so you can angle your flashlight in relation to the handlebars.

    Cons:

    The only slight irritation is the fact that the rubber grip in the handlebar clamp is not attached so it drops out sometimes when you remove the mount, but this can easily be glued in place with a drop of superglue.

    The flashlight clip is flexing every time you attach or detach a light- not sure how long it would last before it stressed and cracked, or whether this plastic will go brittle with the effects of UV light (but the mounts are so cheap you can buy several anyway)

    OtherThoughts:

    I have successfully tried this mount with Ultrafire AA Flashlight SKU 30987, Tank CR123 Flashlight SKU 19183 and a Fenix PD20+ all of which fit really nicely in the mount and make awesome bikelights.

    You could also use this mount to attach your flashlight to any tubular frame or a tripod as a spotlight or worklight.

    Bottomline:

    Buy a couple and have twin headlights on your bike.
