‘Flashy’ Belt Accessory

Keep a flashlight handy and safely out of your way

Flashlight at the Ready

When I had to climb a ladder to get into a dark attic space, I needed to find a safe way to carry a flashlight and tools with me. So I fastened a small flashlight to a key ring and then clipped it to a carabiner that I got from the key-making department at the home center. Now I can hang my flashlight from a belt loop and safely climb and navigate hands-free. Once Iā€™m in the attic, I can either hold the light in my hand or use the carabiner to hang it from a nail in the rafters. ā€” Robbie Keman
