The Sock Light is a light that goes in your dresser, and automatically lights when you open the drawer so you can see what's in the drawer in the dark, without having to flip on the bedroom light and wake up your spouse, other half, or signifigant other.

It runs for approximately fifteen seconds, and then turns itself off, so you don't have to remember to.


 SIZE



Install a 9 volt transistor radio battery in the Sock Light first (see directly below). Mount the Sock Light on the inside front of the dresser drawer you want it in, using either the included Velcro brand hook and loop fasteners, or two screws (screws are not included; Velcro is). The photograph directly below shows how it should go.

They are 1.75" apart; the screw heads should be 0.25" in diameter.
Pan-head wood screws should be appropriate here.

Whenever the drawer is opened, the Sock Light should automatically come on, and stay on for approximately 15 seconds, then begins to fade to black over the next five seconds. If you still need light or if the Sock Light did not come on when you opened the drawer, press and release the small button on the front of the unit, and it will repeat this cycle.

It turns itself off automatically, so you don't have to remember any switches.



To change the battery in your Sock Light, remove the end of the product with the ridges on its top and bottom, and set it aside.

Unsnap the dead 9 volt battery from the battery snap, and dispose of or recycle it as you see fit.

Snap a new 9 volt rectangular transistor radio battery onto the connector, orienting it so the large terminal of the battery fits over the smaller terminal on the connector, and vice versa.

Snap the end of the Sock Light back on, and there, you're finished.

When the light blub in the Sock Light blows out, unscrew it and throw it away, and screw a new #50 incandescent light bulb back in the socket. Yes, it really is that easy.
Light bulbs are not recyclable; that's why I did not offer that option.



This product is meant to be used as a dresser lamp in a dry area, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, and abused; so I won't try to flush it down the toilet, bash it against the corner of a concrete stair or a steel rod, let my housemate's kitty cat's ghost go potty on it, violently throw it at one of those wall-mounted porcelain urinators (pisscans) to see if it smashes open, run over it with a 400lb Rascal electric wheelchair, sit down hard on it, throw it at a wall, or perform other indecencies on it that a regular flashlight might have to endure.
So this section of the Sock Light's web page will be significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

You don't have to handle the Sock Light like an egg, but please try not to drop it between where you opened up the package and the dresser you intend to put it in. I don't think it will take being dropped all that well. Eggs tend to not take being dropped very well either.
You won't have a wet, sticky, icky, yucky mess to clean up if you drop a Sock Light, but it might become broken or otherwise malfunction if you do.
