Blinky for Bob Trailer?

I'm going to use my Bob with my old Stumpjumper as my grocery shopping bike. Now that daylight savings time is over I'll be going after dark. I'd like to put a blinker on the Bob. Is there any kind that will fit as a replacement for the reflector? Any other arrangement anyone has used? Thanks!

I had a large blinky that was missing the mounting clamp and I was able bolt it to the fender eyelet. Sorry no pic.

You can check out this one here: https://www.biketrailershop.com/catal...nder-p-75.html

I rarely leave my driveway without turning my headlights on no matter what time of day or conditions.

Newer cars turn on when the key is turned, why should bikes not light up?

We lost both of our fenders on our ibexes, mine lasted less then 300 miles off road, Heathers lasted almost 500, but ultimately, both came off. This may not be a problem if your on a road tour, we were on washboard roads.

I have a blinky on the left side of the bob tire, mounted to the wheel fork. I don't know if its too low or not, I hope car drivers can see it, it gives me a bit of peace of mind.

Won't zip ties work?

My planet-bike blinkie came with 2 clamps and one will attach directly to the thin rail next to the wheel. I modified a reflector holder off an old bike (the kind under the seat) and put that where the reflector on the fender is, but it kept coming loose.
