Use a Scrap of Electrical Cable to Make a Flexible Flashlight Stand
Janet Scoll from Richmond, CA writes:
As an electrician, I spend time in crawl spaces running wires. For a quick trip, a flashlight is more convenient than a drop light — especially when space is tight. As shown in the drawing, I use a sheathed electrical cable offcut to wrap my flashlight into a standup fixture. This gives me another hand when I need it.
Of course, if this is a common task, there are plenty of snake lights on the marketthat perform the same task.Some flexible lights, like the DeWalt DW919, can work with batteries from your cordless tool kits.
