McGill Mfg. Co. of Valpariaso, Indiana was a leader in industrial electrical specialties, and especially in portable work lights with metal lamp guards – also known as inspection lights or "trouble lights."

This classic McGill portable work light has a substantial presence due to the sturdy mottled thermoplastic (and non-conducting) one-piece body, and features not just a wire lamp guard with hook for hanging, but also a vapor-proof glass lamp shade as well. McGill is still in business today, now a division of Emerson and the Appleton Group.

Note: This fixture is wired with a receptacle plug. Hook for hanging is not provided.
