Thats a good idea I guess.

Next time you go to cwood let me know how many fish you didnt catch.

Those other lights/flags don't tell you that there is a fish before it has even bitten your line.  Check out this new video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I37Zadv_9Gk
The lights were going off long before the fish took the bait.
If the link doesn't work, try searching bite n lite or light tip up in YouTube.

Yes, looks like it would work well...  Now you need to become a sponsor of this site !! 
Seems a bit "fishy" that all of your post are on / about this tip-down... No free advertising..  :o

I really like the Frabill Lil Shiner 1677 Tip-Up Light.  They have worked flawlessly for me.  I also have some Frabill Arctic Fire Tip-Up Lights but have yet to put them to the test.  I'm sure either would work fine.  I have also made several from Christmas lights and 9 volt batteries.  they are really bright but I have had some bulbs blow out prematurely.  For good fast results purchase either Frabill lights, reliable, light weight, easy to operate and can be seen from some distance at night.

Anyone have ideas light or audible indicators for "old School" tip ups. The kind with the long flag attached to a long piece of spring steel?

The micro bite lite from HT will work with the spring steel flags.  May have to play with position ont he flag to get it to work right though.  It has a clip on it to attach and another clip that acts as a trigger for the trap, slip a piece of mono to turn it off.  Tie the other end of the mono to the trap and when the flag goes the lite and noise will go off.

silvrbck136: Really like your rig. I do something like that with door alarms from dollar store. Will try modifying to get both light and sound, based on your set-up.

I have these on my Heritage Lakers -- it clips perfectly onto the flag -- the red lights up, and it has a very loud siren. just tie a piece of mono to break the contact on that little "clip" there, to the cross bar so when the flag goes up it pulls the mono out. cheaper than the alternative at $6 a pop
