Step into the light with Mac Tools

Mac ToolsMac Tools launches a new headlamp with a motion-sensor operated on/off switch and a new pen light with adjustable focus.

Limited light can be a problem for mechanics and technicians working in enclosed areas on vehicles and machinery as well as when working outdoors during the colder months. To address this issue, Mac Tools offers two new lights: a robust, pocket-sized pen light and a  cleverly designed headlamp.

The headlamp (FL577) features a bright white LED rated to 100 lumens, which provides substantial illumination and is designed to last for up 100,000 hours of continuous use. A low-profile anodized aluminium bezel provides maximum corrosion-resistance and heat dissipation while the inclusion of a flexible cable reduces the risk of breakage. An innovative feature of the FL577 is the addition of a motion-activated on/off switch. The switch simply requires the wave of a hand to power the headlamp on and off, ideal for times when hands are dirty or are busy holding tools. A Mac Tools branded three-way adjustable head strap is also included. Three AAA batteries are required and list price is £31.45.

Mac Tools’ new penlight (FL439) incorporates a high-output LED which lasts up to 100,000 hours and is rated to 70 lumens. The beam width is easily adjusted with a simple twist of the housing, allowing users to switch from spot to flood settings in an instant. Built to withstand rigorous use, both in and out of the workshop, the penlight is manufactured from tough aluminium which is anodized inside and out. The addition of a high-impact polycarbonate lens adds to the robustness. Two AA batteries power the penlight. List price is £31.23 plus VAT.

Mark Hallum, UK Marketing Manager for Mac Tools, says, “At Mac Tools we are committed to developing professional-grade products that make a genuine difference to the daily activities of mechanics and technicians. Our new lighting products have been designed in line with this ethos and offer top-notch build quality combined with innovative and practical features.”
