    Conduit Hanger Mount for Romisen RC-N3 CREE Q5

    Although I have a Two Fish block on order, I was intrigued by the D-I-Y mount using the conduit hangers. So a quick trip to Lowes this morning, and a stop at my local Ace Hardware were all I needed to put it together. The article describing this mentioned using a 3/4 hanger for the handlebars and different sizes for the flashlight. I wasn't sure what to get for my Romisen but I picked up the 1/2 inch. It turns out I should have bought the 3/4 for the light as well. The 1/2 will work (see crappy phone camera pic below), but even though I used a wing nut, it not real easy to remove the light. I have to loosen the wing nut and then spread the clamp with one hand while working the light out with the other. The 3/4 would be perfect--small enough to get a tight fit but large enough for easy removal once the wing nut is loose. The thing I really like about this setup is that you can adjust the beam both horizontally and vertically--something you can't do with a lockblock. I got the clamps and other hardware at Lowes--my local Ace store had a little package of 3/4' heat shrink for $1.99. No shipping, no waiting--a great mount for a little cash!!

    Use a similar set-up for my "D-celled" Mag-Lite and Task Force light from Lowes.

    Made the same setup for my two TaskForce lights from Lowes. Got the idea from www.nordicgroup.us

    x2. SMS turned me on to this theory, and I've used it to mount lights and my camera. Loving it. I was less fortunate finding the right conduit hangers, after 3 hardware stores (including a lowes) I went to an industrial supply place. @ $0.50/clamp, and already having heat shring adn hardware lying around, it was one of the cheapest, best working DIY mods I've done in a while, at least on the bike.
