Powa Beam Quick Draw Spotlight Remote Control
The Powa Beam RC500 Folding Spotlight Remote Control is a remote control handle for spotlights which you can mount on the roof of your car. This allows you to quickly illuminate the target area from your car without the need of stepping out and using a torch.
The RC500 is a versatile spotlight remote control. It is machined from aircraft grade alloy and has reversible, self-lubricating ball joint washers. You can easily attach and setup your spotlight through the internal wiring of the steel ball joint. Once it is properly wired, there is a switch to turn on the spotlight at the handle. The handle folds down approximately 350mm below the roof, so you can easily access it with your hand from any position.
It is usable with all Powa Beam spotlights and all the parts are entirely replaceable.

My remote is brand new and makes a squeaking noise, can I lubricate it?
If remote squeaks when turned left or right it is generally the rubber boot rubbing on the top shaft. You can stop this by a placing a small amount of Inox or WD40 at the top lip of the rubber boot where it meets the shaft.
The washers are made to be self lubricating therefore should not need additional oiling.
If your remote is still squeaking, try a very small amount of Inox or WD40 at the top of the ball joint. Please note too much may cause the ball shaft to slip, therefore reducing its ability to hold tension.
Is it legal to install a remote in my vehicle?
There is currently no law stating that roof mounted spotlights are illegal. Check out the links below to determine whether the folding remote will be in the head impact zone of your particular vehicle or not.
