I have used this type of product previously, (though not this model). They make repairing punctures whilst out less of a chore. This model will take non-threaded cartridges as well as threaded, and can also be locked off so the trigger will not activate accidentally. Also, having the cylinder cover means that it can be used without gloves, (those cylinders get COLD when the gas is released.
I recommend this product!
I like:can use a variet of cylinder sizes and types, lock-off facility
I don't like as much:not the cheapest way to pump up tyres.

I use a full suspension 29er MTB. The rear guard has to be placed so that it doesn't interfere with the suspension travel, which does reduce its effectiveness. On a hardtail, that wouldn't be a problem, and I would recommend it for that use.
The front guard has nothing to shield the frame from being scratched, and also is quite deeply moulded. On a larger downtube frame, it does not fit well. Also, check where the cables are routed before purchase. My bike has the front derailleur cable routed under the downtube, which prevent the guard from sitting close. However, even with that problem, it is surprisingly effective. To be even more effective, though, the Crud Fast Front Fender has to be added to prevent spray from the front wheel coming past after flying of from the front of the bike.
I would have chosen a different solution if I had been using a conventional wheeled MTB
I recommend this product!
I like:can be used on a 29er mtb, light, available in white
I don't like as much:not totally effective on a full susser., not totally effective without additional parts.

These lights are good for emergency use, to be able to show lights in the dark. They are NOT good enough for dark unlit roads or tracks, but are useful for street-light lit roads. Just remember to take them with you if you leave the bike unattended.
I recommend this product!
I like:light, easy to attach, easy to carry spare batteries
I don't like as much:easy for thieves to remove, emergency use only

Do these only last for one inflation?

Or do they inflate tyres more than once?

Depends on the tyre size. Narrow tyres may give you 2 inflations. MTB tyres will get just one. It also depends on the size of cartridge you use, larger cartridges generally being more suited to large capacity tyres.

The Cateye light probably came with a clip to fit the light to a belt. I used that to hold the light, attaching the bracket securely to the bag by wrapping PVC tape around the bottom of the bracket to prevent it falling off. I then used a zip tie to secure the light to the bracket. If you no longer have the belt clip, Chain Reaction Cycles carry spares.

You don't describe the pump, so my answer will be in 2 parts.

1. If the pump has holes top and bottom, it needs pump pegs on the frame. These are available separately. These need to be fitted so the pump has to be compressed to fit between them.

2. If the pump has a bracket attached to it along the barrel, this having two holes about 10 centimetres apart, it fits to bottle cage bosses. These will be on the down tube, and will have 2 screws in them. The bracket fits UNDER a bottle cage, Ensure you use a velcro strap to hold the pump to the bracket.

Cat Eye Bike Light Set has OptiCube lens technology and is the Cat Eye top value bike light set.
 

Is a kit available to mount the lights on a second bike?

Generally, the answer is yes. Be prepared, though, to pay almost half the price of new lights for spares. If Halfords don't supply them, (haven't seem them on their site), try Evans Cycles, Wiggle or Chain Reaction Cycles.
