Flashlight / Tool Box, retail $7.00 (www.gimmees.com...)
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 02-29-09

This is a tool box (with integral flashlight) containing 21 tools, a "T-handle", a socket adapter, and an extension for the sockets & screwdriver bits.

It has an incandescent flashlight built in (that feeds from 4 AA cells), and comes in a two-piece plastic case that swings open on a hinge.

Regarding the first photograph above: This is fairly representative of the condition the unit would be in when the average user reaches for it.

To use the flashlight portion, feed it first (see directly below), and then you can go fix that closet rod that always feels wobbly and loose.

On the top of the handle near the front, you'll see a turquoise slide switch. Slide it forward (toward the flashlight's head) to turn the unit on.

Slide this switch back toward you (as the flashlight is aimed forward) to turn it off.

To change the batteries, open the unit as you would to use the tools. In the upper piece (near the red & black "T-handle"), you'll see a battery door. Slide it off in the direction of the arrow indicated on it (toward the "T-handle"), remove it, gently place it on the floor, and kick it into the closet so that the hungry, hungry clothes moth caterpillars (larvae) think it's something yummy to eat, then find it unpalatable so they just wrap it in silk as though spinning a cocoon...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

If necessary, remove the four used AA cells from the compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert four new AA cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (-) negatives face a spring for them in each chamber.

Slide the battery door back on, and push on its back edge until it snaps into place.
Aren't you glad you didn't kick that battery door into the closet with all of those hungry, hungry clothes moth larvae now?

This is a tool set with a built-in flashlight meant for occasional use, not a flashlight meant to be used every bloody night, carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused, so I won't try to drown it in the toliet tank, bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a garage, let my housemate's citty kats go to the litterbox on it or my parent's dog's ghost lift his leg on it, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a large claw hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or perform other indecencies on it that flashlights might have to have performed on them. So this section of the web page about this flashlight/tool set will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight that was born to be a flashlight and nothing but a flashlight.

Here's how the "T-handle", extender accessory, and socket adapter would be used with a socket wrench.

Test unit was purchased at a Wallgreens in Seattle on 03-23-05; it took so long to get it on my website because it kept ending up in box after box after box and being continually misplaced as a result.

While packing for my latest move from Sacramento CA. USA to Federal Way WA. USA in early-December 2008 (for a move scheduled to take place between 12-27-08 and 01-03-09), it turned up yet again - this time I segregated it from the rest of my belongings that were being packed, and now have it on this website.

I busted the latch while changing batteries for this evaluation; if I can find some cyanoacrylate (super glue), repairing it should be a piece of cake. If I cannot repair it before I move, I'll affix the latch and the small plastic tit that broke to the flashlight body with tape, and conduct that repair shortly after my arrival in western Washington state.

UPDATE: 12-08-08
The tractor beam will not be successful...er...uh...the repair was not successful.
Both myself and my stepmother attempted to repair it, and we both failed.

When I move later this month, I'll try to locate the "Mighty Puddy" (kneadable epoxy) and attempt to repair it with that.
