My garage is also my workshop, so most of my projects involve hauling my tools to the driveway. Frequently, I am close to finishing a project as the sun sets. On one of those evenings, I found myself wanting to locate my shop light in a good spot. As I looked for a solution, I saw my flagpole bracket in a whole new light. The bracket can receive the free end of my shop light’s foot, leaving the light perched at a reasonable height above my head and inclined at an angle of about 45°.
