1) Wrap adhesive rubber strip (in box) around mounting location of handlebar if handlebars are slippery.  Unfasten and open strap. Place XPL-3 on handlebar with one hand as shown.  

2) Feed strap up through slot. (Be sure strap is only going around handlebar, not brake or shifter cables!)

3) Tighten strap so the XPL-3 is secure.

NOTE: Always loupe strap up through slot and then pull down.

4) Fasten by pulling down and lock it into place.

Never go straight up without going up through slot first.

5) HELMET MOUNT (optional)  - Headlight Installation: Repeat the same steps for the helmet mount:

    If the XPL-3 does not stay in place on the handlebars, it is a friction issue.  Please use adhesive strip included.  Attach Strip directly to handlebars.

(NOTE: XML-3 shown, but all of the following models mount identically: XPL-3, XML-3, XML-4).
