Utility Glasses` Case




Introduction: Utility Glasses` Case

For people with glasses, a glasses' case is handy to have around.  This is a simple gadget made using duct tape, an X-acto blade, and a Energizer tactical flashlight.  It comes in handy of you have your glasses` case and you want a light or a blade.  It also maximizes the space taken up by the glasses' case.  It is so handy I had to use it to find the photos in this Instructable.  For those like me who mess around with duct tape, this is the beginners gizmo to make.  Many of you are probably saying that this gadget is crude. Well, crude works.

Step 1: Materials

All this gadget needs is duct tape, a regular retractable X-Acto blade, an Energizer small tactical flashlight, and a regular ovalish glasses' case.

Step 2: The Flashlight

This is the hardest part.  The flashlight will come with a detachable magnetic clip.  You must take it off and put a two-inch strip of duct tape onto it with the adhesive facing inward.  Then reattach the clip.  Finally, stick the flashlight to the case with the lens facing backwards.

Step 3: The Blade

The same way as with the flashlight, slip the duct tape in the clip and stick it to the case.  Make sure the blade stays inside the length of the case, or the purpose is defeated.

Step 4: Notes

The utility tool can have even more purposes when you modify the inside.  I managed to stick a pen with the blade, attach a compass/thermometer and a watch to the inside.  There can be many different combinations.
