At $25.45, this is probably one of the least expensive Snap-on tools you’ll ever buy. Seriously, though, what a great idea: You simply pop your “C” battery-powered flashlight into the clip, attach the magnetic base to the car you’re working on, your toolbox, or whatever other ferrous metal you might find in the area, then swivel the light to face your work.
The magnetic base swivels 360 degrees and pivots 70 degrees, so you can point the thing in just about any direction. I can see numerous uses for it in the shop and car, especially since I’ve got a couple of “C” cell MagLites around.
Here’s the big question, though: Have any of you seen something like this on the market for less? I know there are other solutions to the problem — like many of the new flashlights that come with cordless kits, complete with rotarty lens and such — but have you seen anything just like this for less dough?
