Step 5:

Place the light inside the bag to see how the light distributes. Try different locations if necessary.

Since the lid on these bags either opens away from the storage compartment, or comes off the bike entirely, there is no tilt sensitive switch on this model of the Top Lite™.

Use the manual switch to turn the light on and off.

Mark a spot where you want to place the light.

Step 8: Peel the backing off the mounting tape.


Step 9: Carefully place the Top Lite™ where you want it. The tape is very good, so get it where you want it.

If you get it crooked, you have a few minutes before the adhesive really starts to stick, just peel the unit away from the surface slowly.

Tthis particular adhesive actually gets stronger as time goes by, so don't wait to make changes.
