 Flood lights on the ROPS

Does anyone have any suggestions for mounting flood lights on the ROPS? I obviously don't want to drill through the ROPS, but I havent found any mounting brackets that are designed to go around the bar. Are there any companies that sell after market parts for this? Where should I look?

Thanks Tom

When requested we normally make a simple clamp to fasten them on. There are so many sizes of rollbars I can't think of anyone offering them.

 Flood lights on the ROPS

I've heard of hose clamps and even plastic tie-straps used. The light from insecure mounts may be pretty unsteady though.

Mounting them is a way so they are lower than the roll bar or they swing down lower when not in use is a good idea. Mine are mounted on a steel canopy near the front and rear ends and I swing them up for use. One of the first times I used them I forgot to fold them back down and nearly took off a light on a tree limb the next day that I don't think of as a low clearance problem.

I used a square-bottomed U-bolt. I replaced the 1/8" clamp that came with it with a piece of flat 3/16" stock that is a little longer than the width of the U-bolt. On the extra length, I drilled a hole and mounted the light through that hole.
