    DiNotte XML-3 custom mounting options for bar and helmet?

    Hi Guys,

    I have a new DiNotte XML-3 but am looking into different mounting options. I want a mount that has a slide-and-clip mechanism rather than a rubber strap.

    Last week I was looking online and came across a post about how someone had modded the light with a mount from another light manufacturer - I thought it was cateye but I just can't find the post.

    Does this ring a bell for others? It looked like a really clean mod.

    Thanks!

    I've been looking at this for a while, but haven't bought anything yet.

    Here's a nice thread about it:

    Varider,

    You're the man! This is exactly what I was trying to find.

    I just ordered from www.shopcateye.com:

    H-27 Spacer
    Helmet Mount
    H-34 Flex-Tight Bracket

    I'll report back on how the parts work and how the install goes.

    Yes, please do that. I would like to know that the spacer works with the bracket before ordering.

    Worked well! No issues but I do have to say that I am on the fence as to whether this is a better option than the really convenient rubber strap option. I can't say that it was a lifechanger but it did work very well if you're into a bracket style mount.
