    Nitize Spotlit at Dutchware

    These lights are great for casting a nice even diffused light. They are great for hanging on the ridgeline and just turn on with a squeeze. You can read by them and they have a carabiner for easy hanging. Only $3.50 for the introduction.

    I'm SilvrSurfr, and I often can't find my hammock at night. I endorse this product for those who suffer a similar affliction.

    I use one of them too now!

    My hammock was the furthest out at a group camping and I walked right past it in the dark. I was probably 40' past it out in the bush when I realized that I must have gone too far. Now there's a 'porch light' left on until I turn in for the night.

    ?? to Dutch (or anyone else with one) though, two of us have tried to open the darn thing to replace the batteries, what's the trick to getting it open??

    What it's missing is how to get the darn thing apart in the first place.

    I had the same problem with my Petzl headlamp, finally found a help thread that one reply had a neat trick he'd found, worked like a charm and I can now open my headlamp with no added tools and no use of various profane sayings...

    BTW, the trick with the headlamp is to use the plastic adjuster on the headband to press against the release clip on the headlamp. I had tried to get the release button/clip/who knows what it's named to move in just about every direction known to no avail.

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    Excerpt from a poem by Amy Carmichael
    Missionary to orphans in India.
    She suffered much -- and bore much eternal fruit.

    There are Crock Pots and there are Microwaves. The world does microwaves; God does crock pots.

    That what I thought. Looks like it was made by IKEA. I'd guess the back just pops off somehow or another.

    Nite ize makes lots of great products. They make a "bug lit" and they are awesome. stand them up on a table, and use them as a reading light, wrap them on your hat for working in the dark, put them on your ridgeline for a bendable light. wrap them up, and clip them on your zipper for whenever. The possibilities are endless! I have two of them, and use them on camping trips, and every Thursday when they're wrapped around my roller skates. (I go roller skating with friends every Thursday.) http://www.niteize.com/product/BugLit.asp

    Then there is the "wrap lit" and this one wraps around a lot more! Including your head for a head light. Or even just use it as a gear tie, and the light is a plus! http://www.niteize.com/product/WrapLit.asp

    Go get yourself some! they are awesome, and very useful!

    Use a 1/4" screwdriver, the fingernail file on a small Victorinox knife, etc. to pry the back off.

    Insert and twist...
