Light Mount not big enough

Bought the below set of lights for my Triban 3 (front light seriously bright) but the handlebar mount is too narrow for my bars. Are there any decent generic mounts I can use that can be recommended that would fit the fatter bars on my bike?

    Take the bolt out and put in in your spare bolts tub. Then, with the mount in place on your bars, take a ziptie and thread it through the holes and pull it as tight as you can. Solid as a rock.

    You can either use re-usable cable ties if you want to take it on and off regularly or buy a big bag of 100 zip ties for a quid or two of eBay.

    Good shout. Worked a treat.
