General Tools Lighted Inspection Mirror


With all the la-de-da over inspection cameras like the Ridgid and Milwaukee, it's easy to forget about the usefulness of a good old pivoting mirror. Sure, they can't wind through a wall, but they can get around a corner or up above a pipe in a cramped joist bay.

So to bring the antiquated technology one step closer to post-wheel civilized man, General Tools has added two LEDs to the end of the mirror. It's a great feature, and if you've ever used an inspection mirror, you probably think so too. Getting a flashlight and a mirror up into whatever awful space it is you're trying to investigate is terrible work. Then you've got to angle the light just right, oh no a little to the left, now, back to the right a bit. Forget it.
