          The Husky Clamp Work Light pivots a full 360 degrees putting light anywhere you need it. The sturdy integrated clamp holds tight to most pipes, doors, wood framing and more. Dont worry about any scratching or scuffing, the non-marring feet leave no trace. Utilizing COB technology, this light runs brighter and longer than traditional LEDs - boasting 1500 Lumens with a USB rechargeable battery. When this light is not clamped, you can easily lock the legs open, converting it to a free-standing work light. Constructed of rugged aluminum and ABS plastic, this innovative design also locks closed for ease of storage.

          1500-Lumens of LED Light on a versatile clamp/stand for a variety of applications in and around the house or work shop. It's rechargeable thought it's USB to Mico-USB (included) cord off a standard 5v/1ma USB output port or outlet adpater. There's a charge indicator, which also show remianing power during use, 3 hours on high and 6 for low. Have only found one down fall so far and that's hanging from a ""SMOOTH"" flat surface as the clamp slides, again the key word here was 'smooth' and flat. when hanging. Light output is great, 1500L (high) @ 6281K (Daylight) and it's light weight. compact and rated for outdoor use.
          Pros: Functional, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Very Bright, Well Made

          The HP450 Flashlight uses Coasts Pure Beam Focusing Optic System with Slide Focus to harness the light and create a superior beam quality from spot to flood. The Bulls Eye spot beam pattern gives you a great focused spot while producing an outer ring of flood light which allows you to see a broader area to the sides. The flood beam is broad and consistent, giving you a clear field of vision not seen with typical focusing flashlights. A quick cycle switch allows you to select light output settings with ease. Built tough, an impact-resistant, lightweight aluminum casing resists rust and corrosion. The HP450 also features an unbreakable LED and rubberized O-ring for reliable water resistance and durability. With Coasts commitment to quality, the HP450 Flashlight is impact resistant, weather resistant and its LED is virtually unbreakable. The HP450 Flashlight is backed by Coasts lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Tested and rated to ANSI/FL1 standards. Color: Black.

          Look and you will see the buildings in the back ground in the night pic's, that's a flashlight that can light like that at night.
          There you have it, and it comes ready to use.

          Have to give 'MILWAUKEE® SHOCKWAVE' Impact Bits my 5 Star rating, having used them for some time and earlier this year for building our 50 x14 deck from the ground up and they never failed me. That out of the way, the PH1 Philips bit is smaller than the standard #2 and is used for the small -without saying- headed Phillip screwheads, finer finishing one way to view it. I used the shockwave bits of all size's mostly in my cordless impact driver, they get a workout - a ture test both removing and driving screws. They also work great in my hand T-driver and small ratchet and they are made to just fit better in not only your drivers, but the screw head it's self.

          I have flush mounted these type of fixtures in the past. You need to remove the cover and I just screw right though the sheet metal back. Some unit get very hot when running, so I would plug it in and let it run a few hrs and see how hot it gets.

          There are fixtures that have slots just for mounting them flush and enclosed. They are rated to be flush mount and enclosed. Indoor kitchen lights come to mind, I have installed them both flush and enclosed recess lights, they have holes in them to screw though. Read Less

          Most FL fixture require both tube to compete the circuit and start the lights.
          If you need just one tube, you need to buy a single 40w fixture or a double with two 20w tubes.
