Top Ten: Clip Lights

Top Ten: Clip Lights

Jul 25, 2006

We haven't had a clip light since childhood, when our folks bought brightly-colored clip lights to attach to the slats of the bunkbed. But we need one now to brighten a work space that lacks room for table- or wall-mounted lighting. This little nook has shelves above the work surface, so a clip light will solve the problem nicely, provided we discretely attach the dangling cord to the underside of the shelf.

Now, which one? Pivoting head or a gooseneck? Chrome or colored enamel? Mesh or light-emitting cutouts? Here's a top ten. Chime in if you know of others!
