  • Motor Officers Flashlight

    Does anyone use a lapel flashlight or a variant of that type of flashlight for when they are filling out the cite at night so they can see the info?

    I am on a motor and only keep a small flashlight that won't fit under my arm and still light up the DL and Electronic Ticket book at night.

    I have heard about some lapel lights that hook on your pocket but don't know if they are worth it.

    I tried a Quiqlite pocket flashlight for a few night shifts. A good product, but I could never get it to point where I was holding a cite book. Nothing wrong with the light, just a matter of my body shape and the cut of the shirt. If I was wearing a jacket, there wasn't any place to put it.

    Princeton Tec makes lights with adjustable goosenecks that can be mounted on helmets.

        Here is my redneck fix.....

        My gun cleaning box came with a little goosneck led light that runs on a single AA battery. I took my ticket book holder and drilled a hole big enough for the light to go through,velcroed the light to the inside of the holder and put the light out through the hole. It stays put and gives good light for writing, and easy to remove to change the battery when I need to. I don't have to worry about losing the light because its inside the holder.

          I know the images are from a movie called silent hill. But apparently rumors are that someone actually makes a light similar to that. Can never find it though.

          If you can't find one, you could always by a snake light and wrap it through your lapel.

            Not sure if you're set on having a lapel light, but our department issues these. has a 630 lumen LED flashlight. Also has a 600 lumen LED floodlight on bottom, so it can be tucked under an arm and be used to see your ticket book. Both lights can be run simultaneously if you'd still like to keep a light on your stop while writing the cite.

                That looks perfect. I used to have the streamlight version and it broke. Does it work well?

                  If you're not too keen on those particular colors for the lighting, you can click on the other "jobs" to find other colors that are suitable for you. The only real difference between the products in any particular one are the lighting colors. I myself prefer the white/white light, which can be found under the "workplace safety" heading, because it's the purest and cleanest light.

                    You can find those types of lites at Harbor Freight. They're about 6 bucks. My concern is Officer safety, though. They seem a bit large.....

                      Someone used to make a lite that was actually inside the pen. Sold for about 8 bucks. The advantage was the light was close to the surface so it'd didn't shine anywhere else but where you were writing. It was a little thick but worth the extra size. IIRC "Galls" used to sell them.



                      Just found it! A company named "Myron" makes them.......

                            This works perfectly, as advertised.
