What might I hold?

I've got a few device mounts that came off bikes, that I am not quite sure what they used to hold. I'm pretty sure they are not the run of the mill OE stuff like reflectors. There are two styles, the zip tie mount (probably bar/stem mounted), and the clamp on with screw that seems it is seatpost mounted.

Any thoughts?

The 2nd one looks very similar to a headlight I once had. Can't remember the brand. Headlight has a groove in the bottom that slides on to the mount and clicks into place.

Put them in the recycling bin. Maybe they'll get turned into something useful.

I've had a headlight mount like the second one. The first also appears to be a mount of some sort but I can't see how it would work.

I had a handlebar mount like the 4th pic down; kept it for a year, then threw it out a few months ago. Last week I realized it might have made a great mount for my mirror. So it goes.

That first one looks like an old Topeak mount that is square so the topeak phone case can be slid on regardless of the orientation of your phone or the mount. I used to have one with a "head" just like that.

Thanks CargoDane, I fired a note off to Topeak, who responded that it was not anything they were aware of. Much appreciated.

Ah, well. Pretty sure it was a topeak I had back when, but maybe not.

looks a lot like a Cateye mount.
