The Top 3 Reasons to Carry a Flashlight

We’ve all worked in tight spaces trying to do an installation and then realize we can’t quite see the area we are trying to work on. At that moment you wish you had a handy flashlight.  Is a flashlight part of your toolbox? Flashlights are practical, provide safety, help in emergency situations, and so much more. We always use flashlights for hose and cylinder inspections, repairs, and general work. That's why we carry the Redline Flex flashlight by NEBO in store. Flashlights are a great tool to make your life EZ. Here are the top 3 reasons to always carry a flashlight in an industrial setting.



1. Shine Light on What You’re Doing

Flashlights are a great tool for those who work with their hands. You never know when you’ll need increased light, especially when working in tight spaces. You need a flashlight when making repairs, performing maintenance, and doing inspections. A compact, durable flashlight is a great tool to have. Work flashlights come with different perks. For example, the Redline Flex by NEBO has a magnetic base, a hat or shirt clip, and can shine with great accuracy.




2. Personal Safety

Flashlights are a staple when it comes to safety tools. They allow you to see your surroundings, let others see you, and increase your vision. Personal safety flashlights are very popular, and for good reason! Flashlights are great for people who spend time outdoors. Whether you're camping, hunting, fishing, or whatever you do for fun, make sure you have a flashlight. You’ll be thankful when the sun starts go to down and you have a flashlight. Humans aren’t equipped to see in the dark, but a practical personal flashlight can solve that problem. You're less vulnerable with a flashlight because you can see your surroundings.  The light from your flashlight may be able to scare away or disorient anyone who means you harm.





3. Emergency Situations

Emergencies happen, but they don’t have to happen in the dark. The last thing you want is to have disaster strike and you can’t see what’s going on. Emergencies can happen when you’re at work, on the road, camping, outdoors, or anytime. If you have a flashlight on you, you may be better equipped to deal with an emergency. A flashlight will help with mechanical emergencies, power outages, and dangerous situations. Emergencies happen, like a hose leak or a problem with the hose assembly. You'll be thankful when you have a flashlight to inspect the problem.
