Roobuck, Australian mining light manufacturer, has just released a new device, Roobuck Caplamp Bracket, to transform fixed caplamp into a flexible one, allowing users to adjust the caplamp beam to different angles.
The product has a worldwide patent pending: 2014903138.
The beam direction of a caplamp has a downward angle with a horizontal line. This angle is fixed because neither the bracket on the helmet nor the clip on the headpiece has any mechanism to adjust this angle. With Roobuck Caplamp Bracket installed, a user no longer needs to remove the caplamp off the helmet to point in a particular direction anymore. Instead, the caplamp can be turned up or down so to shine the light from the very ground at a user’s feet to the roof overhead.
The Roobuck Caplamp Bracket extends out far enough to even allow the caplamp to shine down vertically without being obstructed by the visor rim. It normally folds up working like a normal caplamp bracket. It is pulled out only when a different beam angle is needed.
