Led Cap Light
September 13, 2014
This Cap light attaches securely to rim of hat and is bright enough to do nightly pretrip inspection on a truck and leaves my hands free to pump tires, hook air lines etc. It also works good for seeing in trailer at night and leaves hands free to climb up and down from trailer, hook straps and binders.
The only thing I didn't care for was the glare from the bottom of bulbs, it impairs vision do to the light being positioned on hat brim and the brightness of the bulbs. I tried magic marker to color bottom of bulbs. It didn't work, so I put a small piece of duct tape on the bottom side of bulbs and that did the trick. The light should be designed with a shield under bulbs.
I liked the red led. It works excellent for seeing in cab while driving and doesn't impair outside vision ( new Volvo didn't have a red light in cab ). It's been a month and batteries are still good.
I would buy again.
Pros:Leaves hands free, brightness, red bulb, clips securely
Cons:Glare from bottom of bulbs
