    mine doubles as a flag pole.... At night the risk is zero as on the lake I usually am everything above no-wake speed is suicide.

    Makes me have to ask: How fast are you cruising at night? Your stern light coming out may be the least of your problems...

    Mine has a collar that screws on after insertion.

    I usually have trouble getting the pole out

    I'm pretty sure mine twists into some grooves after it's inserted. Either that or the black plastic ring at the top of the female receiver twists.

    Can't remember for sure----but something twists and locks it in.

    Yours might also.

    I have the 2-pole (or pin) version on my 175 and just got an LED model. The original one had a bit of play and I hooked it up with a small cable *) as I expected it to jump over board (never tried it). The new LED model has a ring with a conical bottom you can squeeze into the socket to hold it better which may do the trick. I think I saw the 3-pin version made the same way too.

    *) a self tapping screw about 1" above the socket with a thin SS cable ending in a hook and hooked up to the ski rope thing which is just below.

    Anchor Light Issues-gctid391391

    Hello. I have a 2010 175BR. I have the 3 pin hookup for the anchor light and have lost the light pole twice while riding at night as it has just flew off even though I put it in as snugly as it would go. Has anyone else experienced this problem? What are you other mod-friendly boaters using for an anchor light if not the stock light? I need something that wont fall off but I can still remove when not riding at night.
