Stoplight in Helmet

I had been thinking about the safety benefits in having a stoplight mounted in the back of a helmet. I searched the internet and came up with the following cool item;

Has anyone had any experioence with these? I didn't even know they already existed. The concept is way cool!

Thoughts?

I didn't know they existed either...any added lights would help. and they seam cheap enough that it wouldn't hurt to give it a try



funny just yesterday I had a thought of a spotlight mounted to the back for those lovely times that 4 wheelers like to get up our a_ _ _ _ and ride there

Certainly wouldn't hurt to have one of those.
Kinda just like the third brake light that (I believe) is mandatory on all cars in the US now-a-days.

One thing I would add. I have LED marker lights on my dirtbike trailer that look similar to the unit that attaches to the helmet. After a few years of being in the sun, the clear housing started getting a little clouded over. I haven't tried buffing it out to see if it'll clear up again though.

But then again, the trailer always sits outside, all year. A helmet on the other hand isn't usually out in the harsh elements that much, so if it would do the same thing, it'd probably take ALOT longer to happen.

If you decide to go ahead and get it, do let us know how things go.

I've bought from these people before, and they were ok to do business with.......

I replaced my rear red reflector with an led light of similar size, and made it into a high mount stop light. I got mine at Autozone, but have seen them at Walmart a little cheaper. Blazer # C536R. I also used the C536A amber lights to replace my amber reflectors on the neck covers, and wired them for marker lights.
