ADVICE - Quality handlebar holder for the Ultrafire 501b ?

Postby bilabonic » Mon Dec 10, 2012 13:52 pm

Hi All

As above really, looking for something that will not slip/move on the bars. Got a velcro one for my lid.

Been on Fleabay and seen a few but not sure about fitment, or do Dealextreme do them ??

Thanks

Don't buy this type like I did. It holds the torch securely enough but it is more difficult than it should be to take the torch on and off, then the torch clamp has to be tightened if you want to ride without the torch on the mount.

This style that use a friction fit would probably be better:

You can get both types from DX and eBay.

My lockblock rubber and velcro mount works fine for me. If you're getting it slipping on the bars what about adding a strip of that non slip plastic pads that you can get for dashboards ? I know Tesco were selling it for £1 a while ago ?

Even insulating tape works fine.

On one lockblock on which the strap finally wore out I used two cable ties and this holds it very securely too.
