    cateye el450 turns itself off

    My cateye el-450 seems to turn off when hitting larger bumps in the road. (happened 3 times this morning) The light is mounted on the handle bars and I have only had it a month or so. Anyone else have this problem with this or any other light? If so any suggestions on how to remedy would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't have that light, but suspect that when you hit the bump the batteries are getting knocked from the contacts. Check to see that the batteries make good contact and that none of the little springs or contacts are bent or loose.
