Crouse-Hinds was a leader in industrial electrical specialties, and especially in heavy-duty vapor-proof lighting. When lights were configured to be portable like this possibly hand-made example, they could be used to illuminate work on engines and complex machinery, or inspect production work for defects – thus their common names of inspection lights or "trouble lights."

This classic Crouse-Hinds portable work light has a substantial presence due to the sturdy cast iron body and original deep red paint, and features not just a wire lamp guard with hand-welded hook for inverted hanging, but also a vapor-proof glass lamp shade as well. Crouse-Hinds is still in business today, now a division of Cooper Industries and Eaton Corporation.

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