I'd suggest a small dab of superglue could be considered at the base of the shroud.
    Dave - exactly this happened to me ( and I stow the same way ).

    Rob - can you get replacement covers as a spare?
    Cheers, Dave

    I just want to add a cautionary note for anyone thinking about using this as a backup torch with Ni-Mh rechargeables. These batteries do self-discharge even when not in use. You can get Low Self Discharge ones such as Sanyo Eneloops but even those aren't perfect. They'd be fine in a torch that is used regularly, but if it's purely a backup you're better off using alkaline cells such as Duracell etc, or when you really really need your backup to work you might find it's dead.

    The shroud thing arrived in Cornwall. Many thanks, Rob!

    Unfortunately, I left Cornwall for Oman on Wednesday. But my wife will be back in a few weeks and will bring it over. Until then, the bike inner tube will continue to hold on, I'm sure.

    Good man! Green on its way.

    First class service, it's a pity more suppliers don't have this attitude towards their customers..........well done Rob.
