I would like to know whethr this particular flashlight can be purchased, and if so, the price, etc. I have several of the old Ray-o-Vac 'Workhorse" flashlights, and this appears to be very similar to what I have and need. Thank you.

I have this flashlight, but the on/off switch has become very hard to use. Is there anything I can do to lubricate? or fix this switch.

Thank You,

i bought one today at the grocery store where i work. they have many in stock; and they also have several duracell penlights that are circa 2004. i thought this light was from 1995 not 1985; because the batteries packaged with it had a 2002 expiration date, (2002-7=1995) as alkaline batteries have a 7 year shelf life. but i guess it is from 1985. surprisingly the batteries still work.

This is a great little flashlight. I used it for a few years when I worked as a part-time limo driver to read house numbers. Puts out a good strong beam. I still have it and use it when traveling.

The metal clips fell out of my flashlight when I opened it to change the batteries. Does anyone have a diagram of how they are supposed to fit back into the tray?
Thanks, John

I bought one of these probably 6 years ago at my local hardware store. Haven't used it in a while. I had no idea that this flashlight had originally come out in 1985. And I remember wanting this flashlight when I was a kid in 1990.

Oh how much fun I had with this light when I was a kid as I would do things like strapping it on my RC car and truck and drive it around in the basement with the lights off. It was one of my most used lights until it broke or disappeared years ago.

Great Flashlight - used it for hunting for years. Fits easily in any shirt pocket. Am always looking for new ones to replace the one I have.

This light has lots of metal clips/tabs that are easily lost when changing batteries or bulbs. The contents are in a tray, whose bottom is on the side with the Durabeam logo [in the model that I have]. In order to open the light, place it on a flat surface with the "Made in USA" logo side on top and the Durabeam logo on the bottom. Push in the tabs and slide the tray out. Note how all the metal clips/tabs are arranged. You might want to make a quick schematic, because parts can easily fall out or fly out from the tray as you change the batteries or the bulbs; or even as you just look at it. Otherwise, this light is reasonably bright with a beam that has lots of artifacts.
