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 market that perform the same task. Some flexible lights, like the DeWalt DW919, can work with batteries from your cordless tool kits.
