Industry Reviews

People love our Trouble Free Work Lights.

At a recent swap meet, we watched demonstrations where the Retro-Fit was repeatedly bashed against a metal garbage can, stepped on, dropped, thrown, dragged across a swathe of rough pavement, and so on. Not once was a failure observed. And better still, the illuminated fixture was held in someone’s bare hands for several minutes at a time. We felt compelled to buy one and test it for ourselves…

Hemmings Muscle Machines – Charlie Ascher Review

The Trouble Free Work Light and it is catching on with old-car hobbyists who want a trouble light that’s extra bright, but doesn’t get hot or short out every time you bang it against something or drop some cool fluid on it.

Old Cars Weekly – John Gunnell Review

See our lights being used on the upcoming season of Fat and Furious.

“It’s durable.”
“It’s bright.”
“I don’t have to worry about a drip of water blowing out the bulb and it never gets hot.”
“It takes a lot of abuse.”

“I bought the light with a magnet and cage at the rod run and this thing is phenomenal! Turns out I should’ve bought the drop cord also. I was showing my brother in law the light and it turns out the bulb was tougher than my old drop cord lol. Outstanding product. I’ve dropped, banged and had other assorted mishaps and have had no problem with the product. The magnet is very strong and frees up the other hand for working. I love not burning myself and stopping because I’ve broken another bulb. Great job!”
