Hands-Free Lighting Solutions

Lets face it; you are more efficient and productive at work when using two hands, especially when working in confined spaces, carrying a flashlight in your hand is just not an option. The solution: a flashlight holder that mounts your flashlight to the rim of your hard hat or a headlamp.

Flashlight Holders are easy to install and are available in fixed angles and adjustable. Adjustable flashlight holders are recommended since they feature a knob that allows you to rotate the light in the direction needed.  Most clips are made from unbreakable stainless steel and will stay tightly mounted to your helmet.

Headlamps are another handy hands-free lighting solution. They can be worn on your helmet or directly on your head. All headlamps feature a rotating head for directing light where you need it most. They are also made durable enough to withstand the rigors your job may present.

Whatever your preference is, flashlight helmet mounts and headlamps are a cost efficient way to deliver hands-free lighting in demanding work environments. Hands-free lighting is ideal for those working in the following professions; auto repair, maintenance, electricians, plumbers, construction, heating and air conditioning repair and firefighters.

The Benefits of LED Flashlights

Pelican LED FlashlightsThe LED flashlight has certainly revolutionized the world of flashlights in recent years. LED, or light emitting diode bulbs, are so much better than the standard filament type bulbs. Electrons inside the bulb move around, thereby creating a more reliable and powerful light source.

LED flashlights are also extremely long lasting. In fact, you can expect to get up to 10,000 hours out of them, which blows away a regular bulb. The LED flashlight will also require far less power to operate, meaning you’ll save on battery usage. Many of these flashlights run without using batteries at all, or use rechargeable batteries that basically last forever.

You can find every different type of these flashlights available including ones on helmets, key chains and regular hand-held units. They even have kits available to convert an older model standard light into an LED model.

Because the LED bulbs tend to be hardier than the older, fragile, incandescent bulbs, dropping one’s LED flashlight in the dark does not necessarily mean losing the use of the flashlight. Since it doesn’t use the same fragile voltage wire of the old bulbs it proves to be stronger and more resilient. These flashlights use only about 5-10% of the power of traditional flashlights, which means longer battery life. Another reason for the longer lifespan of an LED flashlight is that it is less draining on the batteries since it uses about a third of the power needed in incandescent bulbs. Many LED flashlights are waterproof also. This is a perk when it is necessary to use the flashlight in the rain or snow.

Brighter light is important when using an LED flashlight in the dark. Whether changing a tire or looking for dropped keys, the brighter light is a godsend. Because of the innovation of a tiny mirror placed in the bulb the light from an LED flashlight is utilized where the user needs it most. The light from an LED flashlight can be seen up to a mile away. Rather than producing a ring of light like the old flashlights it is a brighter, more focused, directional light.

When the power goes out, and your safety is concerned, trust a flashlight you know will work. LED flashlights are the future, get yours today.
