I was concerned about that very thing, but when tested this past summer in a rocky downhill tip over, the light just rotated sideways on it's mount, no contact. Sorry, no pic, it was the first time and had to get it back on it's feet ASAP lest it stay there...

So those covered bridges...

Can someone edumacate me on why the covers?

Is it just to keep the big wood from rotting or is there something else to it?
