I bought this for my Cateye light (can't remember model, but it looks identical to the new HL-EL450, so it would be the old model of that light), and it was a very worthy purchase. The bracket that came with the light was absolute gash and broke in a few weeks. I ordered this one, and it is still going strong two years later, although only for road use. If you are off road then the bumps can make the light jump out, as the little clip part that holds the light doesn't cope well with constant bumpy ground (I actually gaffer tape the light to this bracket if I'm going to be off road). At present though I have slick's on my mountain bike and only use it on road, so this bracket is perfect for that.

Bought one of those wicked CatEye lights, the £50+ variety over 18 months of bumpy offroading and the bracket gave in, partly because I unscrewed it and allowed it to wobble, but nevermind! I bought two of these replacement and I agree with the previous review it is BETTER than the original!

Good enough at holding the light in place. However it has a known problem where the screw works loose, as the light exerts a pulling on it every time you hit a bump. One day my screw got loose and jumped out onto the road, where I couldn't find it. Cateyes response to my request for the size of the screw to replace? "Buy a new bracket". So i've got to buy a whole new bracket (£5.99 rrp), because some 2p screw fell out. Poor customer service from Cateye..

I bought a road bike with wider diameter handlebars than my mountain bike so the original bracket wouldn't fit. This one fits and works well. Does the job. Only down side is the price...seems very excessive for what it is but, hey.

I have 3 of these mounts on 3 different bikes, for holding a larger HL-EL540 front light.

They are not fit for purpose and regularly work loose, so the light ends up pointing at the road - it simply isn't possible to do the tightening nut up enough to hold large front light securely. I'd rather have something fit for purpose that requires tools to fit and remove.

I have the problem to a lesser extent with the FlexTight fitting for the rear light too.

I ordered 2 of these - as a spare set for a second bike - not realising that the back light required a different bracket."Fortunately" only one arrived - I called the suppliers and a very polite operator apologised, sent me the required alternative which arrived the next day, and even refunded me the difference immediately - Brilliant

Great i really didn't think i would find this. It is original quality and means i can move my light between bikes without having to undo etc. It also means i can trim the strap to avoid catching with my fingers.

I already have this bracket on my Hybrid bike and wanted the same for my second bike so I can transfer my lights between the two bikes. This bracket fits my second bike perfectly, exactly as ordered.

The strap is smooth plastic which slides easily over metal handlebar. So my headlight gradually ends up pointing downwards as I ride. I end up having to re-adjust it as I ride. I cannot tighten it enough to stop this. I bought this to replace one where the plastic strap had broken. Cateye really didn't test this product enough.

I'm only buying it grudgingly because it is the only mount that fits my lamp and I am not going to buy a new lamp.

I will try to fix the problem by putting some high-friction rubber around the handlebar. Or glue it in place.

It fits my old cat eye lamp well~and it is stylish too, I really like it. It would be much better if the price can be lower a bit though.
