Brilliant Flashlight Hack

Beam more powerfully with a paper plate

Family Handyman

When its dark and theres a power outage, we usually hunt for a flashlight. This is helpful, but limited to a small concentrated beam. Make it more useful by broadening the beam of light with a rubber band, a clothespin and a white paper plate. The paper plate can be bent to spread the light over a larger area. This means we can still play cribbage when were up at the cabin! Jack R. Reynolds
