Description (Brief)
Metal oval-cylindrical housing with hinged cap on top. Cap is held closed by a friction catch on the front of the housing. A belt clip is on the back of the housing, and a hinged ring is on the bottom of the housing. Hinged cap contains 3-position slide switch and two brackets on top. Brackets support a lamp housing, housing swivels in brackets. A GE27 lamp is installed in the lamp housing which also contains an (empty) spare lamp clip. (Note: GE27 lamp will not fit in the clip, so the original lamp probably used a “TL” or an “FE” envelope.) Spring clip holds plastic reflector and plastic lens in place within lens cap. Cap screws onto front of lamp housing.
