Specially Vintage Flashlights

german aviation flare

I have seen this listed as a black & white German aviation guide flare made by Artas. I have also see this listed as a German police traffic baton flashlight. It works off 2 D cell batteries and uses 4 bulbs with a leather strap at the end.

I put together this Gallery to show some specially flashlights like traffic wands or as some call them, emergency lights. They would have been many uses like directing traffic or for a freeway/highway emergency or roadside emergency. Also could have been used for safety or signal lights. They could have been used for different uses for any industry from controlling and directing traffic of large groups of people. They could have also been used for parking cars at big events or even parking lots. I have never seen the Winchester with the red wand before so maybe it was added to the flashlight. I have seen the wands in different colors. My favorite is the one by Burgess.

I have a few different inspection lights, (flex-lights) for those tight places where a regular flashlight wouldn't be useful and was used by different kinds of inspectors.

Zoo Flex-Lites

Let's get confused. The two gold Flex-Lites have Kalamazoo, Mich. printed on the bodies with the brand name Flex-Lite INC. The black Flex-Lite also has the brand name Flex-lite Inc. printed on the body with Kalamazoo, Mich. The D cell silver one has Zoo-Lite with the brand name Aero-Motive MGF printed on the end cap along with Kalamazoo, Mich. The AA cell silver one with the clip has Zoo with the brand name Areo-Motive MGF printed on the end cap with Kalamazoo, Mich. The other AA cell silver one with no clip has Zoo-Lite with the brand name Areo-Motive printed on the end cap with Kalamazoo, Mich. One thing we know for sure is, they all come from Kalamazoo Mich. I guess that's why they're called Kalamazoo Flex-Lites.
