Made from one molded piece of UV-resistant, EPDM rubber, we feel our Safety Spinner base is perhaps the simplest way to attach something supported by a post to different sized tubing.
To attach securely around narrow tubing such as rear bike forks, any excess rubber can be easily trimmed with scissors. Bases can either be rotated on tubing to make a cool “Flying V” or if end users park their bikes close to say another bike, bases can be rotated even further to lay even flatter against their bike, as seen to the left.
As a testament to the saying that some of the best ideas are simple ideas and the fact that it’s first use was for making people safer is the fact that it was granted a fast-track U.S. utility patent, # 7278616. Licensing and customization are open to discussion but infringement will be prosecuted.
Our base attaches to tubing and helmet slots 3 ways -- just okay, better and best :
The petals, made from various plastic films, are available in fluorescent yellow and “prismatic” diffraction grading.
The “flower” shaped, fluorescent yellow in front and back is 3M’s Diamond-Grade 4083 microprismatic film, used in traffic signs for increasing conspicuity at night. It’s microprismatic construction allows it to bounce light directly back to car and truck headlights. This is why they glow in the photo to the left and on the home page's Night video.
We would be remiss to not remind folks that helmets are very important for safety. So along with Safety Spinners and maybe even one or two on top on the helmet ...
