Coleman 12V ATV Multi-Mount Spotlight

anybody have any experience with these?

they are only available at walmart. hopefully im allowed to post a link there since its the only way i can show people what i am talking about..



here you go:


saw one while dropping off used oil at wally world. they seem really nice. ram style mount. with what seems like it would be better than the dimmer atv spotlights that i have experience with. i also like that it has a replacable h3 bulb so i could potentially swap out to a 55 or 35w bulb to save some juice, or even a HID setup if there is enough room in the housing.

im not sure how bright it is, or how the quality is.

im also not sure how quick detach it would be. essentially im looking for something like a regular vehicle 1 million candlepower light that can be mounted to the fourwheeler, and be quickly pulled from its mount as i enter fields to look for stuff.

and before anyone cry's foul, im not looking to jacklight, or anything else questionable or illegal.

hopefully someone has some experience with it...

if not, i think i might have to be the guinea pig.

That's just a regular handheld with a ram mount attached to it. You could just find a light you really like, maybe one with reviews and add the ram mount to it. Also doing in that way, if the light craps out you still have a good quality ram mount to mount another light.

I've always been interested in one of these but like stated above I don't do enough riding at night to buy one.

yeah. my big concern was the way in which it mounts. quick detachment, yet stable for trail conditions. someone on another forum gave me a good enough review for me to think that it will work. ill be getting one soon, and ill post up my experiences.

Ram mounts are quick to release. When you open the dog bone one side will open more then the other because of the little spring holding it shut. Leave the more open side towards your light, a couple turns and it's off and the dog bone will stay attached to your bike.

actually, there is an additional wing nut on this mount. it is above the top pivot point of the ram mount. its sole purpose is to clamp the handle of the spotlight. a few turns, and it releases the light.

That seems like about all that's out there for feedback.

I have one.

It's crazy bright and the mount is an actual Ram mount, identical to my Ram drink mount.

I wouldn't exactly call it a quick detach though. You have to tighten it down at the middle "dog-bone" part of the Ram mount and a second spot that holds the handle, and they have to be pretty tight to support the weight of the light and not move around on bumpy trails. The middle part is quicker to loosen but leaves part of the mount attached on the handle which makes it awkward to hold, and loosening the part on the handle is more effort.

The mount and light weren't designed from the beginning to be a set. If the light fails, there's no reason you couldn't use a similar type of light and reuse the mount.

My whole purpose for buying it was to be able to light up areas besides what my headlights were pointed at. It certainly accomplishes that, but if you're with a group or moving quickly, it can be a pain.

My ATV is apart at the moment, but I'll be out working on it this weekend, I can get some pictures of it on the rack if anyone wants, but the rack probably won't be on the bike. ;)
