Saved My Life
I can't see well anymore and the extra light is life saving. Can't fall.

The product is good, but one doesn't work
I had bought others like this a while ago. They work for a long time and are easy to install. One of the 4 that I ordered didn't work. Harriet Carter didn't send any paperwork to return if needed and I would pay more in mailing than I paid for the one light.

Great product
I have a large storage space that is finished inside with wood paneling. This makes it very dark. I had someone screw the base to the wall and I can slide in or out to change batteries or bulb. The pull chain needs barely any pressure to switch on/off. It is perfect for my use and the price was very reasonable. Works well for somewhere you don't want to spend money to run electricity.

I would not buy this product again.
I used this product in the hallway because my light had gone out. This product is only good for a few moments time and the light is not very bright.

I love this light bulb!
I have others of these and love them. I use them in my bedroom closet since there is no light in it too. i keep extras around house and even have gave some as gifts.

This is my second purchase
This is my second purchase of these lights. I have them for power outages. They are not really bright but I didn't buy them for that purpose. I have one in the basement as you come in from the garage. I did use it for extra light the last outage we had after a storm. The outage occurred at night when I was out of the house. I could find this light as I came in the house and it gave enough light so I could get my lanterns and flashlights out.

Will not purchase again. Would not stick. Very dim light.
Would not purchase again. Would not stick in closet. Kept falling. Very dim light. Still could not see in closet.
Feb 11, 2017
Cord on light broke before we even got it installed.
Cannot replace bulb, must buy new light every time a problem
Jan 28, 2017
It was wonderful. I would buy them all the time.
It is great for a pantry. Love it.

Stick Up Light Bulb
Like the product, easy to install, very handy
Jan 20, 2017
Great product
Love the stickup light bulbs, easy to install & perfect for my closets. ??
Jan 08, 2017
For me it's very accessible and the small bulbs are cheaper
I don't need to hire a electrician for such a minimal project I can do.
Aug 17, 2016
Love these stick up bulbs
Bought two for myself and two as a gift. Lights up stairways, closets etc. great when power goes out, runs on batteries
Aug 10, 2016
I will buy this product again & AGAIN
in the closet and in a dark area of a room
May 28, 2016
A Bright Idea
These are great. Even with the room lights on, my closets were dark. These added lights provide enough light to see what I need to see. Quick, easy and convenient. Very satisfied.
May 12, 2016
Light is a rip-off
The design makes it appear to have a real light bulb. Instead there is plastic outer bulb with a tiny flash light bulb in the center. It's a joke. A waste of my money!!!
Apr 09, 2016
Great for bedroom closet
I received two of these. I had used one for many years and was happy to reorder. But one does not work and I am returning it for a replacement.
Apr 07, 2016
very handy
I have bought them before.

Lightning a dark area. Lightning a closeted area

Stick-up light bulbs
Because the batteries kept falling out of placement the lights did not work well. The light bulbs had to be replaced before use. Very unsatisfactory.
Jan 09, 2016
Great product
The light is great, easy to install with the adhesive back or mounted with the screws provided. I just wish it didn't look so bare. I am planning to purchase the clip on light shade you have and try that to make it. A bit more attractive .

Where I used the stick-up Light Bulbs
I have a 12' X 16' X 8' storage shed with two small windows. There is no electricity in the shed. Heretofore, the only way to get enough light to find anything was to leave the barn-type doors open, a poor solution in inclement weather. I have put up 3 stick-up bulbs on the rafters with extended pull cords. Now I can light any part of the shed or all of it if I wish to. It is easy and convenient to change the four AA cells in each unit whenever needed.
Aug 28, 2015
Doesn't work like expected
They were hard to turn on... Dim and went dimmer then off...
Aug 24, 2015
Not what I thought
not a real bulb
Aug 20, 2015
Needs better adhesive
Keeps falling off the wall without using the screws.
Aug 07, 2015
stick up light bulb
very durable but not as bright as I thought they would be.
Jul 01, 2015
Pleasantly surprised with sticik up light, just what I need
Compact and easy to install. I would purchase it again.
May 06, 2015
cheap design
Item seemed cheap coming out of the box. Not a standard light bulb, but a small one in a large 'bulb' shaped cover. When I went to try out the light, the string pulled of on the very first pull. Not a good product.
Apr 28, 2015
Stick Up Light Bulb
I bought this to have more light in the garage & after I put it up and turned it on, I couldn't believe how dim it was! I could install 10 of these & it still would be too dim. Too bad, great design & idea but useless...
Apr 27, 2015
A very good product
I use them in the bedroom closet and the bedroom as it does not have a regular light. The batteries outlast any similar device and puts out more useable light to use than any similar product I have tried. I am sold on that's why I re-ordered
Apr 24, 2015
would not recommend item
i was very dissapointed in the product i ordered. the light was not bright enough also, after mounting the light on the closet wall it fell down right away. i wish i could return it
Jan 03, 2015
Broke first time I tried to use it.
Poor product. Item broke/jammed with the first pull of the cord. I will return the first unit as well as the second unopened unit.
Dec 29, 2014
It works great
great for a dark closet
Dec 10, 2014
So helpful!
the best is that you can take the bulb out of the holder easily & stand it up anywhere. Really iluminates closets much better than flashlights. Was enough to light a whole room during our recent power outage.
Nov 14, 2014
love it! put it in my closet, perfect!
I put it my closet. it lights up my little bedroom.
Oct 23, 2014
It was poorly made and didn't work as ad
It didn't work properly. When you pulled the string it did not turn off.
Oct 13, 2014
Could be LOTS better
To change light bulbs, you need to know how to unsolder and resolder the bulb connections. They look the same as mini Christmas lights, maybe not as bright.
Aug 17, 2014
Great Idea
Great idea and product. Adds light in the night, but not so bright which is so great. Love it and want more for other rooms.
Apr 08, 2014
Product was as protrayd
Installed in pantry and was extremely easy
Mar 29, 2014
Poor craftsmenship
One of the three battery connetion plates was installed backwards, and can't be corrected Waste of money
Mar 27, 2014
brand new batteries, stopped working within 10 minutes. Waste of money
Mar 22, 2014
The product doesn't work.
I'm very unhappy with a product that doesn't work.

stick up light bulbs
I ordered two light bulbs. one was missing a back and one was broken. Very inferior quality.
Dec 27, 2013
Missing Parts
I ordered four of these stick up lights, and two of the four came in missing a battery cover.
Dec 23, 2013
Great Idea Great Product
I use these in my shed so since I do not have electricity out there and it makes it easy to even use like a flashlight when I need light only in one area of the outdoor shed. I can also bring it in and use it when the lights go out during a storm, it is safe and I don't have to worry about the kids getting burnt by candle wax.
Dec 09, 2013
Stick Up Bulbs Work Great
Dec 01, 2013
Great idea - not real bright though
I am now,using them over washer/dryer area. On a high shelf. Not bright enough. Maybe they will end up being used in a closet. Others mention replacement bulbs are hard to find? I am hoping that won't be the case.
Nov 23, 2013
Daytime or nitetime, great
We have a small area in our garage that we converted into a pantry. The lite is perfect for this and saved a great deal on the cost of an electrician. The bulb replacement is the same as most flash lights.
Nov 18, 2013
I have bought many lights for my broom closet, but this is the first one that works well. My fuse box is in this closet, so I needed to be able to have light and the use of both hands.It has more than sufficient light - better than a flashlight and hands-free. PERFECT!
Oct 27, 2013
Nice light for dark closet
These little lights are great for a closet. We have several closets without lights and these lights are quick and easy to install and the battery lasts a pretty long time. I didn't buy this light for looks, I bought it for practical use.
Aug 22, 2013
Stick up bulb
ordered 4 and one didn't even have the bulb in it one just didn't work at all so what I wound up with was 2 Not going to bother to send them back as postage cost more than the product itself. Put one up in my closet is more like a nite lite than actually giving off enough lite to c whats in the closet. Still using my flashlite.
Jul 31, 2013
needs a brighter bulb.
I think it's a great prouduct. But,if that is the size of the bulb you are going useing with this product.It might work for some but everyone.I think it sould be brighter.If the bulb was brighter.I could use it in more places. And one more thing.Need to be able to fine the replacement parts.
Jun 27, 2013
Jun 19, 2013
Good idea
I like the added lite it affords. Works well under a sink, in dark cupboards.
Jun 18, 2013
Do Not Waste Your Money
I wanted to use this light under my computer shelf, but it was not even as bright as a night light. They say it is the same as a 40 watt bulb, but it is not! I would not recommend to a friend.
May 24, 2013
It allows me to see what's in my closet!
Others have already mentioned the weakness of trying to stick this up via the inclosed tape. I have mounted these with screws, added more string to the switch and they work! i only gave 3 stars because they do seem to eat batteries. I was suprised to see HC has ceased to supply a spare bulb. got one few years back that came with a spare bulb. bottom line is I can see in a non lit closet well enough to get whats needed.
May 20, 2013
sticky not very good
We purchased for lights in our RV that diesn't have a light- but sticky doesn't want to see to work on any of the 4 units I purchased- less than 24 hours- it falls down. IF they would fix the sticky or better screws might recommend
May 16, 2013
itty bitty bulbs
Do not know how to get replacement bulbs...can anyone let me know...they are so tiny ...
May 12, 2013
Great Light
I've put them in my closets & outdoor sheds.
Apr 10, 2013
Let there be light
The product arrived within time specified. Hung both bulbs in closet without light. Both bulbs strategically placed in closet provided sufficient light to find what we needed, these bulbs were great.
Apr 03, 2013
Light 'em up!
I'm sure there are brighter lights that a flashlight bulb incased in reflectorizing plastic shaped like a light bulb but for the cost and ease of installation. The only thing against the light is the cheap double sided tape that poorly adheres to any surface. It will separate itself from the base or the surface to which it is applied.
Mar 29, 2013
light not bright enough
delivery was OK
Mar 25, 2013
Did not Work
Both of the lights failed to work right out of the box. Could not get the lights to turn on.
Mar 24, 2013
would not recommend to anyone
Needed some light at the end of a long dark hall. Didn't want to light the whole hall, just a small area. Doesn't put out enough light. Not even enough light for my small closet.
Mar 14, 2013
Great idea
I bought this light to use in a closet in my vacation cabin. It had no light in it. Works great. Easy to install and it's not fragile like a regular light bulb. I can find nothing bad to say about this light. I ordered a couple for my friend also. She had a closet with no light also.

Mar 01, 2013
Not the light of life
I like the fact that this can be used in places that don't provide much light but I was disappointed that the light it provided was vey dim & didn't give out a nice bright light so you can see a large space.
Feb 27, 2013
Too dim
Very Disappointed. Bought it for a small closet. There isn't enough light to help.
Feb 26, 2013
didn't last when the power was needed
I mailed the bulbs back, I hope to get credit cause they don't work.
Feb 23, 2013
Perfect lighting solution for my Pantry
Had been looking all over for a light source in my kitchen pantry. Had even tried several sources via retail outlets. None of them did the job. This Stick-up Light Bulb is the perfect solution for me. Puts out just the right amount of light to enable me to see everything inside my pantry.
Feb 11, 2013
Great Idea If They Worked!
I bought 4 of these bulbs and also got the electrical cord to save on batteries. I hung them in closets, under my kitchen sink and was impressed how easily they were to install. The first one "died" after one use. The second did the same. I tried changing the batteries, but they were done! Great concept, but very poor quality!
Nov 25, 2012
I would not buy
bulb burn up shortly Product is not great
Aug 31, 2012
great with 'old fashion' batteries
tried this first using rechargeable batteries that were fully recharged, dismal, wouldn't light beyond 6 inches from the base. THEN tried regular 'old fashion batteries' and WOW, the entire under the stair portion of the closet were lighted. WELL DONE.
Aug 29, 2012
I would buy this product again
my grandchildren play under my stairwell. the light was perfect for the small area and its plastic so I dont have to worry about it breaking. I would recommend.
Aug 11, 2012

i ordered two. I am glad i did because one works and one doesn't. Now would you recommend it?

Mar 31, 2012
very cool
I use this product for my kids room. We installed it above his bed so he can read in bed. Also, it detaches from its base to carry around in case he needs a light in the middle of the night. I'm buying more for camp and other rooms in the house
Mar 22, 2012
Light bulbs very very convenient
Under the stairwell for light
Mar 05, 2012
stick up light bulb
I had high hopes for this product, however, it does not stick on the ceiling of my closet and now I have to use nails to keep in place. otherwise like the product and will order more
Mar 04, 2012
do not like product sorry
lighting for closets nothing great
Mar 03, 2012
Good for power outages
Will be used in places with no elec.
Mar 01, 2012
it doesn't stay on
I very unlikely to buy again out of a catalog since this product looked good but then got it and it doesn't even stay on. It would cost to much to send back so probably won't buy anything again.
Feb 19, 2012
Great idea
I have purchased three stick-up lights for my two closets and laundry area. Convenient, easy to use, bulb never gets hot. I can even carry it with me during a storm when the electricity goes out.
Jan 20, 2012
The stick up bulb gives sufficent light
The stick up bulb gives sufficent light for my clossets. The screws came with it to fix it to the wall. I suspect the adhesive would not have held it for long. It is attractive. The bulb will separate from the holder so you can move it where you need it. It is powered by 4 AA batteries so I did not have to pay an electrician to fix the electrical connection to my lights in the clossets. It saved me money in that way. It is economically priced.
Jan 18, 2012
A great back up for power loss
I have two and used one in my car port. I've also have used them when we lost our power. But like others had written,I have two bulbs that need replacing and can't find them anywhere. It would be helpful to provide information on how to locate replacement bulbs with the selling of this product.So, right now I have two nice looking lights that I can't use any more.
Dec 03, 2011
They are great!
I use them in the laundry room, closets and the room where the hot water heater is--really like them and they will come in handy when the lights go out!
Nov 26, 2011
LOVE this!
We LOVE these "light bulbs"! The paper that comes with the product gives the bulb requirements, and we found them online ... a size that fit but was a bit brighter. We've got an old house, but now have light in all the closets! Didn't even try to use the "stick on" material, we permanently mounted them in the first place... they are such a great thing!

outer cover should be clear, not frosted

Great Little Light! Easy to "install"
I hung this in my closet and will buy more for 2 other closets. Not sure how easy it will be to change the battery once it goes dead, though. Otherwise, a great little product!
Nov 01, 2011
Gives A Somewhat Dim View
The light given off really is dim even in a small closet; light emitted needs to be increased via increased wattage
Nov 01, 2011
This light is great, but the adhesive is not strong enough but they do give screws to attch it to the wall
Oct 28, 2011
"I would buy this product again and agai
coat closet, linen closet and pantry, none of which have a light!
Oct 12, 2011
You do not have to install it, goes any
Good when the lights go out and you can move around without fear of fire
Sep 24, 2011
best thing I purchased lately
my cloth closet was dark, fit right in the area that I needed to see, knew when I purchased it would work for me.
Sep 19, 2011
not enough outlets
small apartment has no wall light in doorway. gives just enought light to enter room.
Sep 10, 2011
Great, but .............................
Loved it. The only part is the stick work. I'll have to drill a couple of holes.
Sep 05, 2011
Aug 23, 2011
Simple solution but not much light
They really are a neat solution for my closets that have no wiring but they aren't really that bright. They're just good enough to keep you from wandering in the dark. Maybe I'll use two in each closet.
Aug 07, 2011
Handy in a power outage
I have several of these around the house. I live in a rural area and the power tends to go out frequently. Of course, this mostly happens at night. These bulbs give a surprising amount of diffuse light, unlike the directed light of a flashlight. Just 2 will light an entire, average sized room well enough to read comfortably. They are portable and can be placed anywhere, leaving hands free for other needs. My only complaint about them is that the stick pad on the base doesn't always stay stuck. I finally just sit them on a flat surface somewhere and carry them whereever I need one. They're handier and brigher than a flashlight.
Jul 31, 2011
I wanted it to light up a dark area by my shower, but it was not what I thought it would be. I had hoped for a real light bulb, but realise my hopes were too high.
Jul 20, 2011
had a power outage and it did the job
not as bright as i would like
Jul 20, 2011
Works as expected.....kind of....
The best thing about this product is that it can be affixed nearly anywhere. It should be handy if (when) I experience power outages. The appearance is deceptive, however; it looks like a regular light bulb that I expected could be replaced. In actuality, it has a tiny light bulb under the cover that has the appearence of a regular bulb. My primary concern is how difficult it may be to find a replacement bulb if it burns out and how much one will cost. Also, because it isn't a "real", regular-sized light bulb, it isn't as bright as expected.
Jul 04, 2011
handy gadget
I like it in my laundry room. Don't have to use the ceiling light all the time.
Jul 01, 2011
Worth the $$$!!!
My mom said she saw these awhile back on TV and was interested in them. I ordered them for her and she LOVES them! She has an older house so some of her closets do not have lights so she has placed these in her closets. We also had a storm not too long ago and the lights in the home kept going off and on so mom slid these sitck up lights out of their base and we kept them close to us.
Jun 29, 2011
Great Product!
A great product for unlit, unwired closets or stairways.
Jun 21, 2011
Great for emergencies!!
I purchased this item for my son. The day after I gave it to him, there was a power outtage. He was able to use it so he could shower and get to work!
Jun 12, 2011
would and Am buying more.
Apr 18, 2011
Love It!
I primarily use this on my patio as I have no electricity there. I keep rechargable batteries always charged, so I never have an issue of no lights. My only complaint is that I can't find replacement bulbs. I bought 2 lights. I'm still on the 1st light, but into the 2nd package for a 3rd bulb over 2 1/2 yrs. Not bad, but it would be nice to be able to walk into any store and buy new bulbs!
Mar 09, 2011
I put this up in my closet because there is no light in there and I am no electrician! I LOVE this product. I used to have a bunch of the push-light stick-on round LED lights...I went through those like tic-tacs. They either fell off, the light was too low, the batteries wore out too fast, etc... This stick up lightbulb is absolutely what I have been looking for. Planning to buy a few more. Thanks HC!
Feb 28, 2011
Works Grrrreat!
Have had the Stick On Bulb for over 10 years and the inner bulb just now burned out. Having a hard time finding just the bulb. So I bought two complete units cuz I have another closet that could use one! Highly reccommend!
Feb 22, 2011
works great
just need to know where I can obtain new bulbs
Jan 14, 2011
Love it!
I use this in my entry closet that is very large and was dark until I purchased this.
Jan 09, 2011
Works great!
I have several of these lights. I use them when the lights go out. They are great when we have a hurricane. The base is a little hard to get off so you can get into the battery compartment.
