IL-560-2110 - IL-560-2113 - IL-560-2112

Since we first started carrying these wonderful LED portable navigation lights, we have sold hundreds of them with almost no complaints. What's to complain about - they work! These lights are very well constricted and robust.

Each of these lights is the same - only the mounting hardware is different. Carefully read the following descriptions to determine which is best for you.

  • IL-560-2110 - Suction cup mount. The 3" dia. cup will screw into the end or side of the light. Fine where a smooth surface exists where the light needs to mount. A safety line should be tied to the light.
  • IL-560-2113 - "C" Clamp mount. The clamp screws into either the end or side of the light. Attach this light to a gunwale, or any lip less than 2-1/2 inches thick. This light also comes with an 18" pole and a wider variety of mounting hardware (see below)

  • IL-560-2112 - Flange Mount. This light comes with a hard rubbery 2-1/4" dia. flange that is designed to be glued to an inflatable dinghy, but could actually be glued or even screwed to almost any surface. It comes with a Stainless Steel spring clip so it can be removed when not in use. Like the others it will mount vertically or horizontally.
Each of these lights has two waterproof, threaded sockets that the mounting hardware will fit. One is located at the bottom of the barrel and one is on the side. If you are using a suction cup, for instance, it can either be screwed into the end or the side of the unit.

    The following applies to all three lights:

    # Requires 4 "AA" Batteries (Not Included)
    # Molded One Piece White Body Construction
    # Shock Resistant Neoprene Accents
    # Rated at 100,000 Hours LED Service Life
    # Uses 90% Less Energy than Incandescent
    # Sealed Heavy Duty On/Off Switch
    # Insert Molded Brass Threaded Mounting Bushings
    # Removable Lamp Carriage Assembly
    # Fully Buoyant

My friend Bill Tosh used one of the IL-560-2113 lights to make a masthead anchor light for his Montgomery 17. Here is what he did:

I drilled an extra hole about midway of the tube and inserted the black eyebolt that came with the light.
Next I installed an "S" hook in the bottom hole of the tube and attached a "tail rope" to it.
To use the light, I simply hook the mainsail halyard to the eyebolt in the center of the tube and pull up the mast all the way to the top, secure the halyard...
...and then pull down on the tailrope which in turn raises the light (180 degrees) and it is "above" the top of the mast, allowing 360 degrees visibility.

Feedback:

This is the picture of the light that you sell.

I epoxied a stud into the top of my mast to put it on.  You do have to be careful how long the stud is or it can screw up through the bottom and break the battery housing.

Hi Chuck a while back I bought a set of LED Nav lights from you. I really like them but the flange to mount them is a little flimsies. I have attached some pics on how I've mounted them on my Com Pac 16. I've cut a notch in the mounting tube to fit the screw on the shank of the light. So all I have to do is aline the screw and then the pin holes are ready all the way thru (see the pics) The aft light mount I also intend to hold my flag pole. Rob Anderson


Hi there:

Last year about this time, you were SO kind to send me a battery-operated nav light for my kayak.  I originally mounted it on a kayak I owned last year, but sold it.  I believe I sent pictures.  Since, I have purchased a different kayak and am sending you an upated picture of how I mount the nav light.  I use the C-clamp provided.  I also have drilled a small hole in the front of the bow to thread a screw from the bottom through the hole up into the threaded base of the light pole.  This method is not as sturdy as simply using the C-clamp.  I realize not every kayak has a way to use the C-clamp, so the hole option is another way to go.  A picture is attached.  I have also been tinkering with a way to mount the light on the back of the kayak, method forthcoming.

Best,

Steve.
