Kel-Lite original test light
This light was:
- Shot with a 38 four times
- Thrown off of 6 story building onto cement
- Thrown from a moving car (50mph) onto blacktop road
- Thrown into a block wall three times
The bulb had to be changed two times. We were able to unscrew all parts of the light. And after the final test the light worked great.
“Finest flashlight for sport and general use every made!”
From letter by H.C.M.
Excerpts from unsolicited letters
“Recently I purchased one of your shock proof lights. The men in my district admire it as I do and I would like additional price lists to pass on to them.”
Chicago Police Officer
“As a reserve Deputy … I recently purchased one of your 5-cell flashlights. Your new concept in design and manufacture is very exciting and most certainly fills an open gap in the law enforcement flashlight need.”
“I recently purchased a 5-cell flashlight of your unbreakable type. To test it, I bit my tongue, shut my eyes, and threw it the length of two cars and height of a railroad car. NOT ONE DENT. Just a couple of small scratches. The bulb wasn’t even damaged!”
Los Angeles Police Officer
“Please send me 50 order forms for your flashlight. The men in my division really think you have a hell of a light. It really sells itself.”
W.U. Los Angeles Police Officer
“The Kel-Lite flashlight purchased from you sometime ago is as important to me on my hunting and fishing trips as my fishing rod or gun.”
