    Pretty creative. Having said that, I wouldn't want to wear it for a long time because of the ring the 550 would create around my head. Also, having the light positioned on only the right or left side would probably create a blind spot on the other side. Is that the case?

    Nice simple idea for a headlamp in a pinch.

    Great idea. You might also want to try it with 1/8" bungee cord. Might be even more flexible or more comfortable.

    Love these flashlight mods..... thanks for sharing

    Hope you don't mind if I throw in some suggestions....

    - Use 2 cow hitch knots in opposing directions and you can lose the zip-ties, in addition to being able to tip the light up or down.

    - Use the adjustable grip hitch for your slip knot. Easy to tie/untie, only one knot to deal with, and locks as strong as a vice... my favorite knot for a bunch of things.

    Lastly, if you don't want the forehead impression, or to look slightly less dorky, here's another option... CLICKY
