Gloworms wire setup is far from perfect when compared to other high end lights but they are on the right track.
    Yes, I should have used "improved" instead. Jim simply stated it was "much better".

    What I don't understand is why it seams like strain reliefs are a thing of the past. Why?

    I see 2 improvements to the lights:
    1/ To use the cables with silicone type insulation (more flexible and cold resistant);
    2/ To use button battery powered wireless remote control, which allows to control either one or more (at least two) paired lightheads simultaneously. That would be perfect!

    2/ is more important to me than 1/.

There was even a modern marvels TV episode on how crazy strong that tape is and how they use it in extreme conditions to hold editor building panels on when they don't want screws showing.
    We have after market adhesive mounts that come with 3M double stick foam tape.
    For these or the velcro pads be sure to clean the area with alcohol before mounting.
