If not, it's a small bag that turns into a big, see-through-on-one-side messenger bag. Hangs from an adjustable and removeable 42" long shoulder strap. Handy for travelers or 2nd Lieutenants.

MOUNTLESS MOTOR
No Mount Motor
Our motorman, CJ, called this reversible 12-24VDC motor strange, mostly because it has the power contacts mounted on the face, bracketing the 11/16" x 1/8" mostly striated shaft, and has no mounting brackets. But that shouldn't stop a clever person like you. (Hint: it was probably made to fit into a sleeve of some sort.) At 12VDC, draws 100mA no load, stalls 850mA and spins approx 900 rpm; at 24VDC, draws 150mA, stalls 2.2A and spins approx 1800 rpm.  Measures 2-1/4" x 1-13/32" dia.

LED WHEEL FLASHERS
If You're Movin', They're Flashin'
Screw one of these little LED tubes onto the valve on a bike, car or cycle tire and when the wheel turns, it flashes, through the magic of a tilt-switch. Comes with (3) button-cell batteries, which are replaceable. We'll pick blue, magenta or green stripey LEDs. Units measure 2-5/8" long over all and the flashy parts are1-1/4" long.

MAGNETIC MARS LIGHT
All Lights, No Siren
Everybody from tow-truck to Lawn Order SUV drivers like to slap a magnetic mars light on their dashboard or roof. This triple-threat 12VDC warning light has a rotating incandescent light and a choice of amber, red or blue domes that screw onto the magnetic dodecahedral (that's 12 sides, Danno) base. The coiled cord with the cigarette-lighter/accessory plug stretches to ten feet and the light measures approx 6" tall x 4-1/2" across. Before you use it, be sure to check to see if you're a cop, firefighter, ambulance driver or are towing something, unless you're the new VP in charge of blue-light specials.
