The Guardian Dual Function Light is what Tom found after an extensive search
for a safety/utility light that would meet or exceed his requirements. Our
Guardian DF Lights are rugged, easy to use, and work as either flashing safety
beacons or interior bag lights. We choose to offer only the "Made in Canada"
models of Guardian Light: they're built to military/law-enforcement
specifications, and we promise they're worth your hard-earned money. We
think you'll love 'em.
Dual function means you can choose between a steady or
flashing light, and switching from one to the other is easy. Simply twist the
lens counterclockwise until it comes off, then tap the lens on a solid surface so
the battery comes out. Flip the battery over, replace the lens, and you've either
just switched from flashing to steady or steady to flashing.
available in two versions — Guardian DF Light Original Base
(available for order
here) and Guardian DF Light Strap-Mount base:
The Guardian DF Light Strap-Mount features a clever base that allows you to
mount the light securely to either a 1" / 25 mm or a 1.5" / 38 mm webbing (strap).
This is great for those who will use their Guardian DF Light primarily as an
exterior light or safety beacon. For a forward-facing light, you can mount it on
the 1" / 25 mm webbing of your backpack shoulder strap, or mount it anywhere along a 1.5"
/ 38 mm shoulder strap for a shoulder bag or messenger bag. For safety from
vehicles approaching from behind there are numerous potential attachment points
on the backside of most backpacks and other bags, TOM BIHN or otherwise. Note that the
and Synapse 25
all have webbing loops added to
the front designed specifically to work with the Guardian DF Light Strap-Mount.
Attach a Guardian DF Light Strap-Mount to your dog's 1" / 25 mm collar or harness and set the
light to flashing mode for added nighttime visibility and safety.
The Guardian DF Light Original
Base — paired with its included TOM BIHN–made lanyard — makes for a handy interior bag light: clip the lanyard and light to one of the
O-rings inside of our larger bags.
Guardian DF Light Original Base can also mount to 1" / 25 mm or 1.5" / 38 mm webbing; however, the Guardian DF Light Original
Base mount is not as secure as the Guardian DF Light Strap-Mount.
