Last updated 03-02-06

This is a small LED flashlight that you strap to your finger, using the included hook & loop fastener.

It is powered by three button cells, and has a brilliant blue LED on its end to produce its light.

They come in case colors of red, green, and purple; all of these have a blue LED in them.

This unit was purchased at a Wall*Mart store in the US in early-October 2005.


The Finger Light is ready to use as soon as you remove it from the package.

A length of hook & loop fastener (possibly Velcro brand) is what holds it on your finger. Grasp the end that is on the outside, and pull it free until you have both ends visible, not attached in any manner to the fastening band.

Place the light on top of any of your fingers, and fasten the fastening band to itself at the desired level of tightness.

To turn the Finger Light on, slide the slide switch on the top of the unit forward (toward the LED).

To turn the Finger Light off, slide the slide switch on the top of the unit backward (away from the LED).

The Finger Light requires a small phillips screwdriver to access its battery compartment; once I obtain this instrument, I'll update this web page with the battery changing procedure and tell you which part you need to kick into the garden.

The Finger Light has all-plastic construction, so "The Smack Test" really isn't all that appropriate here.

Same with "The Toilet Test" - there is no environmental protection such as O-rings visible, so water, milk, diet Pepsi, coffee, urine, root beer, or other liquids could get inside through the seam that runs all around the outside and through the hosel that helps protect the LED. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of groundhog pee, glasses of milk, slush piles, mud puddles, tubs, root beer floats, toilet bowls, cisterns, sinks, cups of coffee, fishtanks, dog water dishes, old yucky wet mops, or other places where water or water-like liquids might be found. A little rain or snow probably wouldn't hurt it though, so you need not be too concerned about using it in lightly to at most moderately bad weather.

If it fell in water and you suspect it got flooded, disassemble it as you would for a battery change, dump out the water if necessary, and set the parts in a warm dry place for a day or so just to be sure it's completely dry inside before you reassemble and use it again.

If it fell into seawater, got thrown into a glass of milk, or if somebody or something peed on it, douche all the parts out with fresh water before setting them out to dry. You don't want your Finger Light to smell like seaweed, sour milk, or piss when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or pee-pee), sugar (from root beer), or lactose (from sour milk) can't be very good for the insides.

Product was made in China. A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
