Shop Tip #739 – Simple Way to Add Major Light to Your Workspace

Its Friday, and Im keeping the content light. Literally.

If you’re anything like me, the older I get, the worse my eyes struggle to work on anything in low light conditions. Im also too cheap to buy the fancy LED baylights for my garage, but I did find a cheaper solution Im excited to share with you.

I just picked up these four panel LED garage lights from Menards. They’re on sale for $26-ish each and screw into your bulb socket.

I installed seven of them in my garage after getting rid of some old 8ft flourescents. The light transformation was pretty amazing and they hang from a 10′ ceiling.

I dont get a nickel from Menards for endorsing these, I just had to share because they work. And work well. For cheap. You’re welcome.

Make sure you get the 15,000 Lumen versions, as they are the brightest.

Here’s a product description of the GT Lite from Menards:
