Position lights for increased visibilty
« on: October 10, 2021, 12:01:14 pm »
Hello at all,

I found something, which I believe increases my TTSE┤s visibility, it┤s a very small but powerful position light.
It is E-approved, which makes it legal for usage on german roads (and I assume the rest of EU also).
I chose this LED-position-light, although it┤s fairly expensive, but comes with approval
It┤s called Kellermann Atto, rough description is here: https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Kellermann-ATTO-POSITION-LIGHT-GETOENT/dp/B07GTLTVWJ/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=kellermann+atto+position&qid=1633862613&sr=8-4



The finger you see is not a thumb, it┤s my little finger, that┤s how small they are.
These little babies, where the manufacturer says, the light surface fits 4 times on a (Euro) cent coin, are clearly an improvement.



I just placed them on the fog-light clamps, provided by Tralex, they are pointing slightly downwards, to avoid dazzling the traffic, which I think would be counter-productive. If someone┤s dazzled, he will not see you either.

Even in sunlight they perform well:

To me it looks like they are creating the extra spot of light, making me feel to be seen a bit earlier. And they consume no space either.
The video shows what i consider to be a big advantage, a bit away they create quite a spot of light, once they get closer, they do not disturb general visibility.
And if all fails, I still have my Foglights to show I┤m here.


Have a great time!

Kind regards
Michael

Those led spotlights look good quality.
Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

We don't worry too much about the EU anymore  :008: but I followed Coconut's installation and fitted bullet type supplementary lights inside the wheel arch.  Has worked very well over the last year or so.  Link here I think:
