Introduction: Hands Free Flashlight
Using only three items you too can have a hands free flashlight!
Walking around at night without a flashlight is a pain, but turning on lights suddenly in the dark is worse and makes my eyes hurt.
Also good for those that may be using a cane or crutches.

Add the back to the light and put another piece of tape across the top edge.
