Do I need special tools to install the SpokeLit?
No tools are needed to install the SpokeLit. Simply press it onto the spokes of your wheel and slide towards the rim until secure.
My SpokeLit automatically turns off after about 1 minute. Do I have a defective product?
No. This product has a "Try Me" mode which allows customers to see the glow and flash modes for 30 seconds before turning off automatically. This feature allows the SpokeLit to be tested in stores without having the batteries drained from products being left on.
There should be a yellow sticker inside or attached to your SpokeLit with instructions. To deactivate, you simply press and hold down the switch. It will first go into the glow mode, then flash rapidly. Keep pressing down firmly until it shuts off on its own. (It is important to continue pressing down and wait for the rapid flash to shut off on its own.) This process will remove the "test mode" and allow you to use the product normally.
What type of batteries does the Spokelit use?
When your batteries get low, they can be replaced with two 3V Lithium 2016 coin-cell batteries. Extra batteries can be purchased at NiteIze.com under the product name Nite Cell or can be found wherever batteries are sold.
What type of spokes does it fit?
The SpokeLit is designed to work with the common round, straight-gauge spokes laced in a three cross spoke pattern. Detailed Specifications: Fits wheel sizes 16" – 27" with a spoke count of either 32 or 36 spokes.
