SEPARATE PENLIGHT USE
- Lens — Protect the lens from rubbing alcohol,
fingerprints, dust, and liquids. Since alcohol can damage the
lens, be sure to remove the tips from the head for cleaning.
Blow off any dust or particles seen on the lens.
- Tips — Disinfect after each use. Remove the tip from the
head (half-twist and pull) and remove particles and wax. Swab

head. Unscrew the penlight screw joint and remove the two

Uses a standard #222 miniature bulb found in many chain
drugstores, hardware stores, and supermarkets.
To replace: If the bulb looks smoky and needs replacement,
press the bulb backwards through the front hole using a pencil
eraser or similar implement, then insert the bulb — lens first
— into the front half of the penlight and push forward until
fully seated and the glass end of the bulb is nearly flush with
the penlight nose. A small screwdriver or rod helps guide it
straight down the casing.
: For a brighter light beam through
the tip, refocus after you detach the penlight or change the
bulb. To do this, turn on the penlight, loosely insert the
penlight into the friction joint hole, and while holding the
head, rotate the penlight clockwise to get the strongest beam
of light through the viewing tip. To check
Hold the viewing tip one inch from a light-colored surface and
observe the circle of light. Refirm the joint by pressing the
penlight and head together.
