Before installing your FlexPro N-Vison Night Lights for Bikes, slide back the cover. From the Battery compartment, and install a 9-volt alkaline battery. With normal use the battery will last from several nights to weeks of use.
You can install the bicycle safety lights directly to the spokes with the wheels attached or removed. Thesedirections show the wheel removed.
Although 2-Color Sticks are shown, the same instructions apply to 2-Color Fins and Single Color Sticks.
Before starting, it helps to see how the wheel is going to look at the end of the process.
Take note of the distance between the sticks, which is rougly120 degrees. Keep this in mind as your follow the steps below. You will begin insertion of the sticks on the opposite side of the tire in the next step.
Hold the three sticks together and locate an opening in the spokes, which will be the first spoke crossing closest to the wheel hub.
While still holding the sticks together, slowly thread them through this opening, and hold them in place.
Be prepared to thread the sticks though the wheel spokes slowly and carefully. Do not attempt to rush this step, or force the sticks as they can be damaged.
Looking at the bottom layer of spokes that the sticks will be going through, divide the wheel into thirds (or 120 degrees).
You will be threading each one of the three sticks into these openings. Please be cautious and move slowly during the threading process to avoid breakage.
Gently thread each one of the sticks into one of the 120 degree openings in the spokes, and thread them all the way through the wheel so they are starting to emerge from the bottom side.
Once the sticks have been completely threaded through the insertion points, gently turn the wheel over to complete the final installation stages.
Lay down the wheel with the sticks laid out on top. Arrange them to complete dividing the wheel into thirds.
Once you are satisfied that the safety sticks are dividing the wheel into thirds, use the provided plastic ties to attach the sticks to the spokes.
Attach the battery box to spokes as close to the wheel hub as possible while still allowing the switch to be easily accessed. You may choose to mount the switch to be accessible from front or back of the wheel. The arrangment shown here has the switch facing out.
