Did anyone see this mount around?


Picture of it in action:


I used to buy them here: https://kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=1922
but they are now sold out.

Not that I couldn't use some other mount, but I already have a working setup of two front lights and I've lost the nut on one of the mounts - would love to get a new one.

eBay, DX, Kaidomain, qualitychinagoods - where else should I look for it?
Does anyone know where these can be bought?

Didn't think about it, thanks!
The solution you suggested is good and weighs less. :)


I still feel uneasy knowing that I won't be able to get a new mount if something happens to this one...

Seeing this is a torch mod: A couple questions....How does the light work for you, do you like it? Is this a P-7 or MC-E? What kind of battery configuration are you using...ie # of cells ? voltage ?

Well, it's a low beam/high beam combo.
Runtime is about 5 hours.
It's 3.7 volts using DX 18650 batteries.
My cables are pre-Magic Shine era and they are pretty thin, so I cut them to the minimum 20 inches to avoid voltage drop.

Some more pics:

("police strobe" works great in the daytime)
The main mount is called "Photon Handlebar Space Saver" and was bought at Nashbar in 2003 - no idea where to get it today.
Using Turboferret's 4*18650 battery holders with all four batteries in parallel.
The cable is Sigma Artikel-Nr. 17370:


The helmet mount from this kit was used to mount the battery holder to the frame.

The lenses are from here: https://www.flashlightlens.com/str/index.php?app=ccp0&ns=prodshow&ref=ucl_lens

Will try to post pics of the battery holder in a couple of days when/if I have time.

p.s. Just noticed that I gave a wrong part number/image for the helmet mount.

Here are finally some pictures of the battery holder.
They are pretty much self-explaining, but I will be glad to answer any questions on dimensions/materials/glue used (glueing pp turned out to be is a pain in the butt).

Sorry I don't ride in winter, but wait till spring and I will provide beam shots. :)
On the other hand, I can just take the light and go out and make a few shots...

What shutter speed/aperture should I be using to make pictures comparable with other lights' beam shots?
