The Skip Light System Instructions


The Skip Light System is a device for securing a skip against theft as well as providing a secure light that can’t be illegally removed. It combines the SkipProtect light, SkipCharge charging unit and SkipGuard securing device.

The SkipProtect light and SkipGuard securing device – referred to as Skip Light for ease of reference in these instructions – are fitted to the two lugs on the side facing the road. The light is activated automatically once the key is removed.

The unit will start flashing when the natural light falls below a pre-set level and stop flashing when light levels increase.

The light will operate for a period of 3-6 weeks per charge, depending on the time of year, ambient temperature and battery charge condition.

The battery will not reach full capacity until after it has been fully charged and discharged 2-3 times.

For charging, see instructions supplied with charger unit SkipCharge.


Operating Instructions

Hold the lens with one hand and rotate the body of Skip Light 90 degrees clockwise, turn the key back 180 degrees and remove. Repeat with next lug. Ensure that the unit is locked by trying to turn the Skip Light body. Your skip is now protected.

Removing from skip

Fit key into lock and rotate 180 degrees clockwise. Hold lens with one hand and rotate body of Skip Light 90 degrees anti-clockwise. Turn key back 180 degrees and remove. Skip Light can now be removed from the skip.
