If you’re working under the hood or looking for something in a tight space in the house, a mirror’ll come in handy, but if you’re looking in a dark place, all you’ll see is dark. If you’re both talented and lucky you can hit the old mirror with a flashlight to illuminate your target — I was never any good at that trick, so I’ll take Snap-on’s Lighted Inspection Mirror.
LED lights around the perimeter of the mirror light up the target, and the mirror will also work with Snap-on’s ActUVLite4 UV glasses to illuminate coolant and AC leaks. The mirror measures 2-3/8″ wide and will telescope to a maximum length of 37”.
The Snap-on Inspection Mirror sells for $21 from your local tool truck or on the Internet.
