    FYI, I have the same problem with under-brim mounting on my helmet. It's mitigated by the fact that I usually use the light when I have my visor up, such as when I have my SCBA in use.

    Great mount otherwise - works great with my 4AA Streamlight, and I still prefer it over the high-mounts some of my buds use.

      The only thing that I can think of is that you may have the light too far forward. We designed it to sit BEHIND the visor, when the visor is down. I see people who place the light inside the visor (between the visor and their face). In this position, when you put the visor down, the light hits the flatter portion of the visor and it absolutely will bounce back into your eyes. If you put the lens directly behind the visor, (mine touches the down angle of the visor when the visor is in the down position) you should be fine, and the light will be aimed where your eyes look naturally. Any light that hits the visor in this position will wrap harmlessly away from your eyes following the curve of the visor. If you have it too far forward, the light starts to curve to either side and you do not get a straight shot of light. I hope this helps, if you want you can call me directly 888.222.9118, and I will do what ever I can to help.
      Thank you

        Thank you very much for the compliment! Be safe, or at least try.

          Sorry for the belated reply. I have been away from the computer for a while. I had the head of the flashlight behind the visor mount. I tried it above and below the brim. Below the brim it was fine until the visor went down. Above the brim just didn't work well because the pivot point for the visor blocked the beam.
          I took some pictures that will explain the problems a little better, I think. I will try to find somewhere to host them.
