Cheap Bike Helmet Mount for EternaLight|
on Sat, Dec 8th, 2001 17:00:02 UTC
I've found that I can easily, cheaply, and securely mount my Model 3X ErgoXray eternaLight to my bicycle helmet using a single 12" long plastic cable tie. I used 2 for added reliability.
The beam ended-up oriented pefectly. The cable-tie is threaded through the lanyard hole, over the case top, between the two middle LEDs, down through a hole in the helmet, back under the top of the helmet, back up through another hole in the helmet, and in through the locking-clip.
Important notes! For safety, do NOT drill any holes in your helmet. I used pre-existing air-vents in the helmet. For comfort, I also made sure the locking-clip of the cable-tie was located on the outside of the helmet when the installation was completed.
My helmet is a Bell Sports (www.bellsports.com) "Rattler" ...apparently no longer made. I'm sure any similar helmet would work.
The top air vents are centered and aligned such that when the eternaLight is attached in this way it is virtually perfectly aligned side-to-side and vertically to point where I am looking. The "Craze" and "Arc" helmets look similar.
Note: I've also found a product called the "Handy Bundler" is really useful for securely attaching odd-shaped items, lights, batteries, etc. to equipment such as bicycles and camping/caving gear. This item basically lets you create your own cable-ties of any length up to 50ft. It can be found in discount stores for under $15 these days but can be hard to find.
