Review of Custer Emergency Supplies HF18A-HD


Today we're going to be taking a look at the amber LED safety light with heavy-duty magnets. This amber safety light is designed for your vehicle. It provides a warning signal to increase safety. This light is ideal for trucks and farm equipment. Again, it has those nice heavy-duty magnets on the back. It's going to feature two settings, and you toggle between those settings using this button right here. It's going to feature a flash setting and a constant setting.

Now this is a cordless design, so it allows for use at a moment's notice. It does run off of four double-A batteries. Those are not included, so you will need to provide those on your own. To gain access to the battery compartment, you remove this single set screw right there and take that out or loosen it up. Remove the back piece and then install your batteries.

Then reinstall this component over that battery area, and then tighten up that single screw right there. It's going to contain long-lasting LEDs. LEDs are great replacements for incandescent lights, they last longer, they burn brighter. They're much more efficient. You don't have to worry about replacing bulbs or worry about brittle filaments. These super bright LEDs can be seen up to 1.25 miles away in clear conditions. Now, the magnetic base lets you easily mount the unit to a variety of applications.

It also allows you to relocate the light quickly and easily. The unit features two twenty-five pound pull magnets, which gives you fifty pounds of pull, which is plenty to stay connected even while driving at highway speeds. Taking a look at a few of the dimensions and then we'll go ahead and turn the light on and turn our lights off so you can see it even in a low light condition. Overall length is going to be about six and a quarter. Going this direction measures about four inches. The overall thickness from very front to very back gave us a measurement of about one and three-quarters of an inch thick.

Each magnet gives us a diameter of right around two inches, so the space that you need to get this mounted on there looks like it's going to be about five inches going that direction and then you'll need about a width area of about two inches wide. So if we press this switch once, it goes into the flashing pattern. Press it again, it goes to constant. Press it again, it turns it off. Do that again with the lights turned off. There we have the flashing pattern. Nice, bright consistent signal. There we have the constant. Again, the LEDs are really nice designs. Going to contain eighteen, so the multi-diode design really helps optimize the light output of the unit. Then we press it again, and it turns the unit off. That's going to do it for today's look at the amber LED safety light with the heavy-duty magnets.
