Attaching LED lights to bike trailer bars which are too narrow?

Afternoon everyone,

Got some LED lights but the bars are too narrow to fix them onto. Are there any products I can buy to insert between the bar and LED light to firm it up?

Thanks for your time,

Give us a picture of the trailer and where you need to attach them. There are some very inexpensive bike mounts that can be used in combination with a piece of 1/2" thin wall aluminum tubing (pole from old tent) or 1/2" PVC irrigation pipe to mount stuff. I used these for a mirror mount, mount for a rear blinkie, and for a 2 point attachment flag mount on a recumbent trike. I could have bought a commercial mirror mount for $25 but it was much more fun to build my own for less than $5.

Sounds like you need to fab up some mounting plates out of sheetmetal
