FOCUS AND BEAM POSITION ADJUSTMENT:

wearing the headlamp. To adjust the beam into the Bulls-Eye Spot™ mode, turn the Twist Focus Ring
bezel around the lens of the light clockwise when wearing the headlamp. The hinged beam adjustment

your hands. To adjust the beam position, hold the housing of the light with one hand and tilt the head
of the light where the focusing bezel is located down and away from your head with the other hand.
HEAD STRAP ADJUSTMENT:
To adjust the HL8 to fit your head, slide the buckles on the side head strap
and/or the top strap. It may be necessary to slide the head of the light and battery pack on the side
head strap to center the light once the head band is adjusted to the proper size.
HARD HAT SAFETY HELMET CLIP USE:
The HL8 includes helmet clips for use with
hard hat style
helmets. To use the helmet clips, loosen the side and top headbands to fit the helmet and attach the
clips to the side strap of the headlamp, evenly spaced with two on each side. Put the headlamp on the
safety helmet and attach the clips to the rim of the helmet. Some adjustment of the clip positions and
head straps will be necessary for proper fit on safety helmets. Note: Clips are designed for use ONLY
with HARD HAT style safety helmets. They are not acceptable for use on most sporting safety helmets.
REMOVABLE BATTERY PACK AND EXTENSION CORD USE:
The HL8 includes a removable battery pack
and three foot extension cord to allow the battery pack to be worn on your belt or placed inside a
backpack. To remove the battery pack, grasp the base where the battery pack is seated with one hand
and the battery pack with the other and pull the battery pack up. It may be necessary to release the belt
clip from the base in order to easily release the battery pack. To release the belt clip from the base,
remove one side of the strap from the battery pack base by sliding it through the slot on either side of
the base; then using the buckle on the top strap as a slotted screw driver, locate the indent on the inside
bottom of the base and pry the belt clip out slightly away from the base to release. To disconnect the
cord, turn the plug on the battery pack side of the connector counter-clockwise and pull out. To
reconnect or install the extension cord, plug the connection in while turning until the plug fully seats and
then turn slightly clockwise to lock in place.
