Re: [rehmwa] Attaching Flashlight to Riser

Interesting -

was your grandma mad at you when you took her drapes away for project materials? Tongue

Haha. It was actually leftover material from mom's drapes, but close enough. It was a strong material for the right price, so I can handle the looks Smile

The point of the design wasn't so much to illuminate the canopy for visual inspection as it was to make myself visible to others. 7 of my 9 cells are white, so 2 of these would really make my canopy glow. I had planned on testing these with a higher pull during the day in case something did go wrong, but if the general consensus is to leave 'em off till after opening I'll go that route. Wrapping the velcro strap around the riser after opening would only add a couple of seconds anyway, but it'd still provide the visibility I'm going for.

EDIT: And for the record, yes I do have too much time on my hands.
