Generally, when you lean a trouble light on its base, you pinch the cord, which ultimately becomes the failure point for the light.

The FTL-5-LED-50-HD 24 watt LED Drop Light from Larson Electronics is a portable and powerful lighting solution that combines the efficiency and power of LED technology with rugged construction and versatile operation. Built to take demanding conditions in stride, this LED work light features an aluminum body for high strength and light weight and an LED lamp assembly for high output and long operating life. The LED lamp in this portable work light produces 2,160 lumens of power illumination with even distribution and side spread without any of the high heat or fragility of incandescent of fluorescent lamps. The long 5 foot length allows this light to be used in a wider variety of applications than smaller lights without being cumbersome or difficult to handle. Although long and thus capable of providing the same output as fixed single lamp fixture, this light is fully portable and can be used as a drop light for temporary illumination in utilities or service operations, or hung overhead to provide illumination for larger areas where standard fixtures are unavailable. The LED lamp is very durable and resistant to the effects of dropping or vibration, and produces a strong field of illumination that is very even and sharp, making this unit ideal for work that requires attention to detail. The housing is water and weather resistant, allowing operators to utilize the unit in locations where dampness or bad weather can be an issue. There is no glass in the construction, also making this LED drop light a good choice for food service applications where a food safe lamp is required. This lamp works with standard 110-277 VAC current, and Larson Electronics has fitted the FTL-5-LED-50-HD with 50 feet of cord and a straight blade plug to provide ample length for moving around larger workspaces. They’ve also added further durability by fitting a 90 degree elbow cord fitting with steel cord clamp to the base, allowing the lamp to be stood on end without any potential to cause fraying or damage to the cord from bending or contact with rough floor surfaces. The handle and end cap are fitted with rubberized covers, providing added impact resistance and non-conductive surfaces that provide a secure grip and prevent dangerous situations should the lamp be used near exposed electrical wiring or energized devices. This LED trouble light is ideal for just about any industrial or commercial application where a powerful and rugged portable lamp is needed and is ideal for utilities, construction, manufacturing and emergency services applications that demand durability and reliability from portable illumination.

“Generally, when you lean a trouble light on its base, you pinch the cord, which ultimately becomes the failure point for the light,” said Rob Bresnahan with “The FTL-5-LED-50-HD led trouble light is designed specifically for operators to lean the light upright against the wall. We machine a metal insert for our base and put a rigid elbow at the cord handle connection, so when the light is leaned up against a wall, there is no damage to the cord.”
