The HEL-STAR 5 is a waterproof, three function LED marker light designed specifically for headgear mounting. Other marking applications extend to vehicles, outer wear, and equipment. The low profile design installs quickly without tools or hardware using VELCRO® Brand tape interfaces. This latest addition to the HEL-STAR family adds functionality to the original HEL-STAR 4 design with a third operating mode.
HEL-STAR 5® Advantages:
