Works, but measure your flashlight first – Universal Bicycle Mount Reviews

posted by snotty on 10/07/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Inexpensive - Easy light mounting/removing - Shim for narrow handlebars is included.
Cons:
- Flashlight must fall within a narrow range of diameters to be held securely.
Other:
The diameter of the opening for the flashlight is 0.89", but a flashlight of that diameter or smaller will slide out. If the flashlight is too wide, it will likely damage the mount from excessive stretching. One light I have is 0.95" in diameter and it seems to be held by this mount relatively securely. A Google search for "twofish lockblocks" will return a better solution for narrower flashlights that use AA batteries.
Bottomline:
The mount provides a very easy method or inserting/removing a flashlight, but only a few flashlights will fit properly.
