Good design, fail quality – Universal Bicycle Swivel Mount for Flashlights and Lasers (1.7~3.0cm Flexible Diameter) Reviews

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

Pros:
A good design using sticky rubber for the straps that hold onto your handlebars and hold your flashlight onto the mount. The sizing is fairly good, and the mount is capable of gripping almost any small to medium diameter flashlight. The swivel mechanism is definitely a plus.
Cons:
Rubber strap for the flashlight grip broke after 3 days of use. Expect the same result for your purchase.
Other:
I had my suspicions that the rubber had not been treated / machined properly. Well it turned out I was right.
Bottomline:
Great design, entirely unreliable. I would not take this on night rides for fear of dropping / breaking / losing my flashlight.
