  • Guardian Light : how to

    Hello folks:
    So I must be daft. I have a guardian light and I can get it to flash. How do I set it for a steady light? I tried twisting it the opposite way, but then it unscrewed the bulb altogether! Is there a way to set it to flash and steady light? I know there is!
    thank for the help,

    Unscrew the top portion as if you were going to change the battery, flip the battery over and screw the top back on . Tada!!!!! You now have a solid light

      Katy, thanks for getting back with me so quickly. It worked of course!
      It would be most helpful if you posted this piece of info on the GL web page! Maybe it would be helpful to others too!
      I am just packing to go home to India.
      Have to say my bag is full of TB stuff---probably will have to give away most of them as gifts!

      The Synapse is amazing: guess what the water bottle space holds?! I am trying to take a picture, but it is not coming out well. It holds a big fat paperback book: Abraham Verghese's Cutting For Stone which is quite a tome. Fit right in there without a problem! Amazing!

        Instructions for turning on and off, changing light mode and battery are included in the
        Guardian Light page.

        Changing from Solid to Flashing: Twist cap counter-clockwise until it comes off. Tap cap on solid surface so battery comes out. Flip battery over. Replace cap.

          I did a review of the Guardian Dual Function Light at OBOW. I also have some photos of uses for it with Tom Bihn bags.

            My bad. I think I am exhausted...sorry!
            did not notice the instructions in the left inset box. I always think that box is customer reviews and don't really "look." Tells me how I read....thanks!
