When it comes to working in the shop or on a job site, having the right tools is essential. One must-have tool everyone needs is the trouble light.


Trouble lights are light sources that are ideal for a wide variety of tasks and help keep you and your workers safe. They are used to illuminate dark or hard-to-reach areas during repairs, inspections and general tasks.


Unlike a typical flashlight, trouble lights are usually larger, heavier duty and provide wider light coverage. They are used to supplement in low-light areas with additional, long-term lighting.


They usually feature a handle, hooks, magnets and/or plug into an alternative power source. Some trouble lights may be portable and battery powered.


Why Trouble Lights are Essential

  1. Enhanced Visibility: Whether you're working on a car engine, using tools in the shop or working at a job site, trouble lights provide the illumination you need to ensure clear visibility in dimly lit spaces. This makes it easier to identify any issues and perform tasks accurately.
  2. Safety: Working in dark or confined spaces can pose safety risks. Trouble lights help mitigate these risks by providing adequate lighting, reducing the chances of accidents or injuries. Ensuring you have adequate visibility is key to staying safe.
  3. Versatility: Trouble lights are a great tool to have because they can be used for many different tasks in a variety of environments. Depending on the type of trouble light, they can be used in a shop, outside or in harsh environments.

To make sure your shop or workspace shine bright, you need quality trouble lights that you can rely on. Kimball Midwest has plenty of trouble lights that can fit your specific needs.


Here is a list of just some of the trouble lights we offer.


Quantum™ Twist Nova

This is two lights in one as it combines the functionality of a trouble light with the convenience and portability of a high-quality flashlight. It features a dual pivoting twist design head, which can rotate 360° around the base and pivots 180° forward and back to allow the light to be directed anywhere. This is an ideal portable light that allows hands-free lighting wherever it is needed.


Quantum™ Edge

This is perfect light to illuminate tight spaces as its compact and slim design allows for use in tight areas where other trouble lights simply don’t fit. It features three light modes that range from 40-400 lumens. The Quantum™ Edge is rechargeable and has a built-in magnetic mount for hands-free use.


360° LED Work Light

If you want a light that really shines bright, check out the 360° LED Work Light. It can produce 4,500 lumens of ultra bright light to large work areas. It has a pivoting base so you can fold the side panels around the body to provide 360° light coverage. It also features an aluminum body that protects the light from impact while the sealed housing prevents dust, debris and moisture from accessing the circuitry and LEDs.


No matter what industry you’re in, trouble lights can make a huge difference and help your shop or work site shine bright.
