1. hat (with rim around the edges)

2. this headlamp

3. battery pack

Step 1: Dismantle the Headlamp


1. Rip off the battery cover (it doesn't matter!)

2. Remove all the screws

3. Pull out the battery holder

Step 2: Remove the Circuit Board

Simple! Just pull it out (be careful!)

Step 3: Solder It!

See the battery + and battery - on the circuit board? Solder the battery holders wires onto it!

Step 4: Attach It to the Hat!

What to do:

1. glue the circuit board to the front of the hat.

(OPTIONAL) 3. put a piece of foam tape on top of the battery pack, the press the hat down on it.
