Title: FLASHLIGHT HAVING A PIVOTING HEAD
Abstract:
A flashlight is disclosed having a body and a flashlight head in which a light bulb is mounted. The body includes a housing that defines a battery compartment, a pair of arms extending from a front end of the housing for mounting the flashlight head between opposing ends of the arms such that the flashlight head may be pivoted relative to the body, and a thumb wheel rotatably mounted in the housing and extending partially through the housing to engage the flashlight head such that the flashlight head pivots relative to the body as the thumb wheel is rotated. The thumb wheel may include gear teeth about its perimeter for engaging gear teeth formed in the round rear surface of the flashlight head.
