Rear light bracket for Brooks B-17

I'm looking for a rear light bracket for my Brooks B-17 saddle. My rack has a steady light attached, but I'd like to add a blinking light for additional safety. I have Bontrager, CatEye, Nite Ize and other lights that I can use. My rack bag doesn't have a rear loop (WHY???) so that won't help plus I don't always use my rack bag anyway.

Thank you.

There are a bunch of mounts that attach to the saddle rails on AMZ. Mine has a Garmin style mount, I see clip-in and Bontrager mounts too.

If you mean a light mount that ataches to one or both of the bag loops on a Brooks, then, no, I don't think anyone makes such a thing.

Of course, you could hang a Carradice from the loops, and then attach your blinky light to the Carradice, but that would be cheating.

Surely it would help folks if you included just one photograph.

Here's a $5 option where you can clip a rear blinky:

If the rear rack already has a light, which (IMO) already would be more than sufficient if it could blink (most can), a second light (IMO) should be helmet mounted vs be at saddle height. Some jackets have a loop at around shoulder blade height and many backpacks have loops/tabs explicitly for rear light mounting, on the assumption that most riders would prefer to get the second light significantly higher than the bike mounted light.

My bad. I left out the fact that it's for a Brompton so attaching a light to the seat post or putting a bag under the seat would interfere with the fold. The light attached to my rack is the Brompton light which doesn't blink per some/many European standards. Hence, an attachment to the B-17 rails is what I'm looking for.
