Bought a Topeak 'RedLite' a few days ago.
Decided to put it on the bike now, opened the box, tipped out all the bits, opened the battery compartment to put the second battery in (!)... and a little 'L' shapeed piece of metal fell out, too!
Can't fathom out which way it should be, in the light and, yes, Halfords are now f*ckin' closed :evil: :evil: :twisted:

  • Calm down...
    I had the same problem recently, but had a spare light in the shed.
    The L shape go's into the cap rather than the light the lower part of the L next to the pin on the cap, the bump on the lower part of the L facing down, simplez.
    Having re-read that not so sure how simplez it is.
    Can post pictures if required.

    Don't calm down.

    In fact, have you ever seen the film Falling Down?

    That's what you should be like now.

    Got to love this forum... The chances of me solving that, before Christmas were zero!
    If I was a bird, I'd have your babies :shock: :oops:

    Cheers mate, I'm much happier, now. :wink:

    it's a decent light too - very neat and bright with it.

    that said, napd was possibly right about the smart 1/2 watt - it's in a different league - I have both..

    sorry.
