Introduction: Simple Bike Light Bracket

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most helpful. I ride my bike to work and in the morning it's pretty dark by now. My standard bike light is not enough on unlit paths, so I would like to add a powerful flashlight which I can switch on if necessary. I built the right bracket myself from a few parts.


You can see what you need to recreate on the photo:

  • 1 threaded rod M8x30mm
  • 2 nuts M8
  • 1 pipe clamp 15-19mm for the bicycle handlebar
  • 1 pipe clamp 24-28mm for the flashlight

The following tools:

  • 13mm wrench
  • 1 Screwdriver

I only had 2 pipe clamps 24-28mm and had to adjust the diameter to the bicycle handlebar. I took some Tesa Moll for it.

Step 1: Assembling

Well, the assembly is almost self-explanatory. Attach the pipe clamp to the bicycle handlebar and screw the threaded screw into the clamp. The threaded rod is secured with the lock nut.
Screw the second lock nut and pipe clamp for the flashlight onto the threaded rod and tighten the lock nut. It is best to align the flashlight in the dark and tighten the screws firmly. Tip: If you screw the pipe clamp for the flashlight only lightly, it will not slip out of the holder and you can still remove it without tools.

I wish you all a good and safe journey!
