    Quite frankly, your attitude, condescending tone, and overall aggressive demeanor are ruining this thread. If you just want to start shit, go hang out in Jo Mamma.

    I've already answered your seemingly important question. No, it's not going to rattle loose. It's extremely light, therefore does not put enough stress on the mounting screws to come loose, even without Loctite. I added the Loctite for good measure. I've tested it many times already on very bumpy terrain. And, yes, Loctite would hold up to the supposed extreme environment you're dreaming up.

    Last but not least, just drop it man. Let's keep this thread civil please.

    By the way, KLRScoob. I didn't mean to bash on your product, didn't mean it that way. I can be very sarcastic sometimes. Sorry. I actually like your design!:thumb And I think Best Rest's headlight guard is sweet. Great idea with the Trimlok Flap Seal to block the light from bouncing back at the rider!

    I have always been told by my father that "when someone copies your idea, its the best form of flattery" If anyone can make them for cheaper, more power to them, I did not want to make money, just figured I could mass produce a half dozen and help some fellow ADV's out! I will just post my pictures from now on of all my "cool" stuff!

    Your headlight guard is cool. And I wouldn't have gotten the idea to build my own if I hadn't have seen yours!

    Anyone who can fabricate some cool items and sell them or even better , write a report about them and how hedid it, will get lots of attention and many will be grateful. Looking at the problems while creating a project step by step will give all of us valuable information and maybe make the design even better! For instance , What did you do so that your product wont break from the vibrations created while riding? Any special design precautions? And , OK , its a Headlight Guard that looks cool and you say it has zero problems till now (i believe you, but). Please write us about materials used for example. I don't say that i know the materials or the design of every product i buy via internet, but i would love to.

    I like the function and looks of the mesh type guards better than the plastic. Plus the mesh guard provides a handy place to zip tie your mono-jack.
