I’ve tried 3 different “universal” holders and all three are barely usable. One was hard molded plastic that I have to forcibly bend to slip the flashlight in. The other is basically a multi-size rubber band that holds it and is able to pivot. The other one was an old holder from a previous light that I won’t even bother mentioning. Never worked at all which is why I gave #1 and #2 a try. I’m looking for something that will mount to my bicycle handlebar and hold my Convoy S2 very securely. It doesn’t need to pivot horizontally. It just needs to stay exactly where it is once I tighten everything. Everything that I’ve tried has to be constantly readjusted during the ride because even minor bumps shift the direction of the light.
help please! I don’t care if it’s the ugliest thing. It just needs to hold my flashlight securely and allow the light to be unmounted when I need to use it elsewhere.
Thanks for all the responses everyone! It looks like there’s a clear winner here. I’ve got an S2+ and was going to try it out on my next ride. I just had a dedomed 1040mA S2 that I’ve been using just to get it rotated into use instead of collecting dust on my desk. But yeah, the wide flood of the S2+ should be nice.
What is hilarious is that on the ebay link page, the last three suggested bike light mounts are exactly the three that I have. haha.
I guess they work for some people and not for others. Are you riding roads or trails? I ride mainly roads and have not problems with the 2nd and 3rd mounts on the pictures. Otoh I’m still looking for a mount for a 26650 sized light.
The second mount wouldn’t fit my S2. The third one required a ton of effort to get the light in and out each time. I think i was literally scraping away a little of the mount plastic each time i put the light in. It’s super hard/dense rubber. Feels like the vulcanized rubber from a hockey puck. I’m using the first mount now just for the convenience of removing the light. It’s just not very secure.
