Direct Tools Factory Outlet claims that is 56% off.
This is a one day deal and expires on 12/06/21 at 11:59PM

It is FACTORY BLEMISHED so it's eligible for Ridgid's Lifetime Service Agreement (LSA).

Currently (at the time I post this) at Big Orange/Home Depot listed as $79.

I picked one up last time this was on SD and I think it's great. I have this light and the Ridgid hybrid folding panel, and they each have their use. This one is great for getting a beam of light into a small space. For example, working on plumbing in a small space where there is no room for a small light and where a headlamp won't shine directly on the area - you can set this light back behind you or off to the side and blast it into the space. The other use is if you need to light up a big space outside, like if your dog ran across a huge field and disappeared over a berm or into some trees. You know, like you're on a cross country road trip and you had to pull over at night in some random field to feed and water your dogs, and before you know it, the one who loves to run is nowhere to be seen. This light does better than your headlights, but that might be because your truck is 15+ years old and the lenses are hazy.

Great for sending skunks and possums around the corner of the house, so I can let the dogs out. Paid more at HD and this is a go-to. Great price.

Probably the brightest spot light on the market vs the other big three, Dewalt, Milwaukee, Ryobi. I have a M18 Milwaukee Spotlight too and I prefer the Ridgid, hands down, this thing has white (5000k+) bright beam. What is not discussed is how lightweight this is as well.

Bought this for $69 at Direct Tools pre black friday. Got it a few days ago and J love it! Great for power outages, car emergencies, and camping. It's not as far reaching as focused beam flashlights but your immediate surroundings will turn into daylight. Lots of good youtube reviews. Great at this price. In for another 2. Thanks Op!

For those who register DTO purchases, what is your experience about fac blemished items and Lifetime warranty. Do things like this fac blem light still qualify for lifetime if registered w/in 90 days from purchase?


Here's what DTO states:
https://www.directtoolsoutlet.com/warrantypolicy
RIDGID Warranty Information
RIDGID Three-Year Limited Warranty
- All RIDGID Factory Blemished Power Tools and Outdoor Equipment are covered by a 3-year warranty.
- *You must retain your receipt as proof of purchase for the use of warranty.

I have this flashlight and it's fantastic. The only "issue" is the dial to turn down the brightness only works for that session. Once you turn the light off and back on again, the light goes back to 100%. I never use it turned down so it's not a problem for me but just something to be aware of.
