New Britain, CT, October 14, 2008 – The Stanley Works (NYSE: “SWK”), a worldwide supplier of consumer products, industrial tools and security solutions, is proud to introduce the new STANLEY® 3-in-1 Tripod LED Flashlight, a union of three removable lights that is based on Stanley’s patented tripod flashlight design. The first of its kind, this high powered flashlight utilizes three individual flashlights, each generating 20 lumens (based on average test values) of directional lighting for activities requiring an extra light source.
Separate the flashlight into three individual flashlights for excellent versatility. The multi-directional heads rotate up to 120 degrees and generate a precision spot beam, while the hexagonal bodies allow for five different positions, creating an even more precise angle and direction of light.
The Stanley® engineers configured the lighting technology to provide outstanding convenience and light output. For example, a single lit flashlight that is inserted into the base will remain ON and turn ON any other flashlights already in place. In the same way, an unlighted flashlight will turn ON when it joins the other flashlights in the base that were previously ON. This unique technology works in the opposite way as well; a lighted flashlight will remain ON after it is removed from the base to give the user the maximum amount of light possible.
When all three flashlights are in the base, any ON/OFF switch can turn the other flashlights ON or OFF. As one unit, the STANLEY® 3-in-1 Tripod LED Flashlight runs on the batteries from each separate flashlight; however, if a single flashlight runs out of battery power before the other lights, it will not drain the other lights’ batteries.
A patented hands-free tripod design with one-touch activation helps to make projects easier and safer for professionals and do-it-yourselfers. Slip-resistant feet ensure that the flashlight will stay in place in virtually all conditions. The shatter resistant lenses and weather resistant design make the STANLEY® 3-in-1 Tripod LED Flashlight ideal for outdoor excursions and home improvement projects that can require either intensely focused light or wider, more dispersed light.
The STANLEY® 3-in-1 Tripod LED Flashlight has a suggested retail price of only $29.99 and will be available in October 2008 at hardware stores, home centers and online retailers wherever STANLEY® products are sold.
