Traditional bow navigation lights are vulnerable to damage from wayward equipment such as a mishandled boat hook, fumbled anchor chain or dropped toolbox. If not immediately repaired, it can compromise the safety of those on board, and result in fines.

Pop-Up® Bow Lights from Accon Marine offer a solution. They fold flush into the deck when not in use, helping keep critical navigation signals operational.

Certified to meet 72 Colregs standard, the Accon Marine Pop-Up Combination Bow Light is USCG-approved to 1 nautical mile. A fingertip push springs the light into its active position for immediate use. When no longer needed, it smoothly retracts until flush with the deck, protecting the lamp—and guests' toes—from accidental impact damage.

Built from marine-grade 316 stainless steel for exceptional durability, the light uses a standard 2.5W, 12V type 78 bulb. It installs with three #10 screws. Accon Marine includes a cut-out template with each Pop-Up Combination Bow Light to facilitate installation, with a tutorial video.

Each light measures 137mm L x 89mm W and 44mm H in use. Accon also offers an optional drain cup that installs below deck to help guard against water intrusion.
