360° Headlamp Kit
The 360 Headlamp is a holder for Mini MKIII and Mini Turbo MKIII lights. It's also amazingly versatile and you can mount it just about anywhere, not just on your head.
The all new 360 Headlamp is printed in-house on our Formlabs Fuse1 printer from Nylon12 plastic. We've also modified it so you can use the Headlamp Kit without removing the pocket clip!
A headlamp...without the limitations of a headlamp. Put light wherever you want it, whenever you want it! The 360 Headlamp looks a little crazy and that's because it is...crazy awesome. I love headlamps as much as the next person, but I didn't realize how limited they were until I tried the 360. There isn't anything else like it on the market. Take a second, open your mind (I knew you could do it), and give it a try. You won't be dissapointed, but you might wonder why everone else is making/buying "regular" headlamps ;)
Can we be honest for a second? Headlamps suck. Ask the friend you just blinded. We've all come to accept mediocrity as the standard because headlamp designers got lazy and didn't offer us anything new. The 360 Headlamp was the brain child of Foursevens' founder David Chow. It's a great concept and breaks the mold for headlamps because you can do whatever you want with it. He understood that the concept was not "headlamp" but rather, "hands-free lighting." Enter the 360 Headlamp.
Extending the hands-free concept, my contributions to the "new" 360 Headlamp are a Velcro backing and making the Mini/Turbo MKIII lights natively compatible with the headlamp base without the need for additional adapters. You won't find a more versatile headlamp on the market.
One thing always bothered me about the headlamp. You had to remove the pocket clip to install the light. Super annoying. However, the 360 Headlamp was never designed for the Mini series, it was designed for the (now discontinued) Atom series. The Mini/Turbo MKIII variant introduced headlamp compatibility by adding the hex and magnet to the back...but you still had to remove the clip to use the headlamp kit.
The old headlamp was made from 5 separate injection molded parts. Adding a slot for the clip would require retooling two injection molds and cost around $30K. We just don't sell that many headlamps. I went a different route and bought a Formlabs Fuse1 SLS printer so we could make these headlamps (and a variety of other products) right here in the shop without having to buy several thousand all at once. One thing I love about manufacturing is using the latest technology to make products better, on demand, and in-house.
