    Coiled Electrical Extention Lead

    I need to rewire my LightForce where is a recommended place to buy the coiled extention lead from? For those that have done it, anything to be careful of?

    Thank You

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    TJ It's probably cheapest to buy a ready made up ciggy lighter extension cable & chop it to suit your needs - That way you'll end up with some spare connectors.

    It seems that 10amp coiled leads are extremely difficult to get hold of, plenty of 3amp

    I rewired one with .75mm2 flex and did away withe coiled wire as it was doing my napper in.
    The flex seems to rattle less when moving the lamp and hangs better if on foot, not flapping as much if there is a bit of a blow on the go either.
    always an option if you have no luck with the coil

    try DEBAN 8 odd for flex for tracer 2mt (0)1394 387762 or any mapplin electronics store i replace mine with hoover flex and will not over heat

    TJ what size bulb is in your lamp? 10 Amps @ 12 Volts = 120Watts. Aren't most lamps 55 Watts? Mine are!
    55 Watts @ 12 Volts is less than 5 Amps. - Plenty of 5 Amp leads on't Fleabag.

    A caravan shop may well stock the cable you require.

    Give S&D harper in Elgin a call
