“CE regulations state that Tail Lifts should be visible in poor light conditions and it is industry practice to fit a flag with a reflective strip to comply with this statutory requirement,” says David Conman, managing director, Parts-4-Tail Lifts.

“However, the flags visibility very quickly becomes compromised due to road dirt and wear and tear and so requires changing frequently. We feel that our light is a much brighter, modern and more cost effective alternative because it remains highly visible for its entire life.”

An internal switch turns the light off when the platform is stowed and the solar panel will charge the light even during the dullest of winter’s short days says Conman.
