I never could get one of those rubber band tool "holders" to stay on my department issued tactical tupperware type helmet so I went with a Pelican 90 degree bend light in my pocket and just dealt with it swinging around.
I also kept a MiniMag with an LED bulb and pushbutton end cap on my hip.The first time on a call where I really needed a light in an unlit room,I managed to leave the [CENSORED] thing on the coffee table at home when the pager went off.
Up until an OTJ injury on the Mississippi River here at Memphis,I'd wear an LED light clipped to my ball cap that was bright enough that I'd be mistaken by other boats for the starboard running light at night when doing stuff on the head of the barge(s) we were towing.
They're cheap enough at wally world in case you lose or damage them and they also come in black light/UV for night fishing. I've often wondered if they'd have a use on EMS calls to help spot leaking bodily fluids during the assessment.Has anyone else thought of that yet?
No,they don't clip onto any helmet that I know of but if you are a vollie and respond in street clothes to the scene,you can still have a light that can shine where you are looking,remembering your Emily Post and not blinding someone by looking them dead in the eye while wearing such a light.
