What you’ll need:
1 small screw
1 small drill bit slightly smaller then the screw.
1 small screwdriver
1 flashing safety light
Price: About a buck or two at any Target, Walmart, or other retailer.
NOTE: You can often get these flashers FREE at health fairs or fitness/wellness events.
The process is a simple one where you will place a small screw into the clip arm of the light to keep it attached to the back strap of your bike helmet. This makes the biker highly visible since the light is higher and thus, easier to see. I have found this is far superior to placing a light only on the back of the bike frame near the seat post.
Step 1: Check to make sure you have a strap on the back of you or your child’s helmet that will allow you to place the light on it. Slide the light onto the strap and confirm it fits.
Step 2: Remove the safety light from the helmet and drill a small hole near the bottom of the safety light arm. Be careful not to place the hole to close to the edge of the arm to avoid cracking the arm when placing the screw into the arm
Step 3: While drilling the hole into the arm. Be careful not to go beyond the arm and back of safety light. You do not want to drill into the red reflector.
