    Quick Release Handle Bar Mount - Where from ?

    G'day all,

    I'm getting really close to having all the parts I need for a home made triple Seoul light but the only thing left to get is a quick release mount system.

    I saw the "Handle Bar Mount for NightPro" on Batteryspace but I don't want to pay $50 USA to get the thing down here to Australia.

    I can't find another source of these closer to home either.

    The quick release would be great to have since it would match my Marwi Halogen system.

    Thoughts ?

    Maybe I should just make my own mount ?

    Tony

    Hi Tony,

    Check out the O-Ring style mount that Lupine use. I had no troubles getting a few off the Australian distributor.

    They are a simple, secure mount with no moving parts that are easy to install and remove from the bars.

    Dave.

    Alternatives to the O-ring are those Livestrong style wrist bands or bands made from cut up tubes. Most of my home made lights I mount using reflector brackets usually sourced from the toss out bins of an LBS. Not QR, but just takes a screwdriver to get on and off.

    dealeXtreme also have some mounts which aren't exactly quick release but they have a big nut thing to tighten / loosen without tools. They have a bit on top which is meant to hold a torch but you can just unscrew it to leave a 'platform' you could bolt your lights to.

    They cost 99c but probably aren't practical unless you're getting other stuff from dealextreme.
