Went to Batteries Plus the other day and they carry the ''Larry'' light .For 10 bucks it is a great little light and the magnet is a great plus.I carry a Fenix  in my pocket and use it often but I can see using the Larry in all sorts of things.Maybe another thing to add to your arsenal.Cant have too many flashlights!

Wishfultech, gadgets rules and you know how to recognize a good one! Yeah and i'm a flashlight nut as well. My parts supply house knows it and last month all the salesmen were waiting for me to arrive just to flaunt "the Larry." They laughed as I predictably drooled.sFun_drool2.gif  Needless to say, I bought one (bright yellow) for myself  and one (blue) for my business partner. We've both been extremely happy with them.

"The Larry" looks grand!  I prefer a pen light that easily fits into my front pocket full of other handy tools-2 small cheap pens, extendable magnet, sharpie, small crecent wrence, small extendable mirror.

Agreed.  For years I've carried an Energizer pen light in my shirt pocket (led nowadays and about $4 at any auto parts store).  Also carry a pen, Sharpie, screwdriver w/ magnet, Micronta voltage detector and UE pocket thermometer.

I carry nearly the same in my pocket but I always keep my leatherman wave with 1/4 adapter on my belt. One of the best investments I've ever made.

Roger that, Brother Durham.  Keep a Dollar General leatherman knock off in the back pocket.  Got a nice one at Electrolux training but it's too damn big.

Pocket tools are great, except when you begin to get too many or one is too big...

Got a drawer full of pocket gadgets, usually geedunk passed out at factory training.  What I carry I use every day.  Besides, with my "Costanza" size wallet if I carry anything more my pants will fall down.  "Sorry Ma'am, would you get that for me"?

Speaking of flashlights, why is it customers always lead you to the appliance and don't turn on a single light ?  Are we supposed to be able to see in the dark?

Happened to me once again today. Working in the kitchen....all kinds of light fixtures....left me without turning on a single one of them. Depends on my mood, sometimes I'll just hit every switch I find other times I just use my flashlights. But each time I wonder if they are just too cheap to turn on lights or just plain nuts. Even the nice ones that ask after showing you an appliance in a pitch black room  "do you need light?" makes me want to say something like..."yeah, unless you got a glow in the f'ng dark oven."

Or better yet, "Oh that light's burnt out..."  ok... I'll wait while you fix it, the clock is ticking after all...  :banana:

Yea it's crazy.  I tell them I have a vision problem, Can't see so good  without lots of light.

Near the end of my tenure with Maytag Factory Service, Maytag was so desperate to find extra ways to generate add on sales we were replacing smoke detector batteries in the customers houses. I'm surprised they also didn't want us to replace burned out light bulbs as well.
