Cateye TL-LD1000 taillight modification
Well I got bored since everyone had to leave work early, due to computer glitches nothing could ship....so off to the bike shop!!!
Left with a sepcialized Indie saddle and a cateye....TL-LD1000 to be exact.
Well that light is fine and dandy, except for two problems, both related:
1) no belt clip
2) belt clips will not work with it, however the seatpost mounts from about every other model will work with it.
...all of a sudden the power of the buffalo wings kicked in (endorphin rush, WOOT!), and I noticed something....there is a plastic prong that seems to be there for not reason at all on the top of the light's back.
a minute later after using a utility knife on that prong, and it was gone....and VOILA! slides right into the old blet clip I had...allowing me to attatch it to the back of my seatpost bag.
Those belt clips can be special ordered from most LBSs, and some shops might even just give you the clip from a display model. Sadly only the lower end taillights came with this clip. I wish more did, as this thing is really versatile.
