Flashlight mount for Streamlight

I have a couple streamlight flashlights which are very bright and have long burn times. Instead of buying a new bike light system or dyno, Id like to find a mount for these.

Does anyone one have any recommendations? Id prefer to mount it to my VO Porteur rack which has threaded eyelets.

Best,

Aaron

Whatever you do, don't order this hunk of junk. Your flashlight will go flying the first time you hit a bump.

I use twofish lockblocks strapped to a 1/2" PVC endcap (cheap version of eyelet stub mounts) with a 5mm hex bolt run through to my Rawland rack. Kinda hacky when compared to more expensive/complex dynamo set-ups but very stable and secure. I haven't had to adjust the angle in several months of riding.

Here's a pic, I like a 90 light but this setup would work with a regular flashlight as well.

Two interlocking hose clamps. Rock solid, cheap, and requires tools to steal.
