    There may be better solutions, but often a thin rubber or neoprene washer between the light bracket and the standard it is mounted on will create sufficient friction to keep it snug when everything is appropriately tightened.

    it is..

    it is a super dumb design...there is no way to get it tight and keep it from looking at the ground after some use...

    if there was a way to put something infront of the screw to keep the light up it would stay better...the light is way frontheavy...

    :cool:

    ok....

    ok...i went out and got rubber grommets...i got 8...they come in packs of 3...how nice huh? get the ones that are the same diameter as the metal holder thingy...

    i put two per screw...there are 4 screws...i put them at the top and the stock metal washer thingy at the bottom...the reason is if the metal washer thingy is not there then when you snug them up the grommits could go through the hole...so i set the lights to where i wanted them and tightened it all up...it works sofar...the trip home did not have my lights moving down at all...

    we are getting MAJOR snow here in the philly area tomorrow...so it will be the test...but it looks hopeful sofar... purplebou

    thanks MMWB :drinkup:
