    Successfully purchased and received confirmation from Henry.

    (Purchased mine primarily to locate fluid and refrigerant leaks in my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota Camry . Wanted the quality build of an HDS light with all the purple color filtered out. Not available in the Chinese gadget store 365nm lights - Convoy).

    My second use is to identify if there is a mouse problem in the kitchen of my Country house. It may also be able to identify where to plug the holes in my house and place the electronic zap traps to be most effective.

    Only thing I ever use UV for is to boost up tritium sights. Hope you all that will use them enjoy them!

    The UV HDS is interesting, but like many others I do not have a real use case for it.

    Btw. the UV lenses are really fast gone... guess this would have been the most interesting of this UV light to blocking all non UV parts of the light.

    Found one the other night right by my feet when sitting on the couch. Total accident. Was playing with the UV and... CRAP! It wasn't feeling too well as it had to cross the line of death to get into the house so it was on the last of one of it's 8 legs. I gave him a bath in the sink and a ride on the garbage disposal.

    So, here is a picture of one of my pets hiding. Her name is Fluffy.


    Here is Fluffy with a Convoy UV light...


    And here is Fluffy with the HDS UV light with Woods lens...


    She is easier to spot with the HDS. I think she is thirsty and needs some of my special cocktail mixed up and sprayed on her.

    You can not tell when the light is on unless something is fluorescing in front of it. If you are dumb enough, like me, to shine it at your eyes when on medium or so, you will see deep purple (and your eyes will smooooooke on the waaaaater).


    Is there any way to make a bezel available for the UV light that will mark it as UV light/Caution/Danger so as to distinguish it from other HDS lights? Or, can I send my bezel to someone that might be able to custom mark it for me?

    Reason is that I can see my wife or someone else pick up this light with the Woods lens, click it on, look in the lens up close for a long time, and wonder why the light is not coming on.

    Not sure if the newer ACME-threaded bezels were ever available in titanium, but that anodizes a deep blue very nicely.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a safety feature for someone not familiar with the HDS ultraviolet light and Woods lens. Bezel might say "UV light"; "Danger do not look into light".

    Maybe a dot of material that fluoresces on the inside edge of the bezel ?

    Well, you can use a label maker for that ... I like the PT-2730 ... but really, the safest thing is to secure potentially dangerous equipment away from those not able to safely handle such.

    My UV light engine host ...



    Its bezel is also labeled (although difficult to see in that photo) , but uses the same type of label as those seen here ...



    And it also only contains batteries when I am using it.

    I know we won't be marking them, but if you have other people in the house, you may want to show them what it is and that it is easily distinguished from the other lights as the lens is black.

    That is an interesting idea. I found a local jeweler that can machine engrave the bezel for me for $45.

    Probably three words:

    UV Light
    Warning

    I have several HDS lights that look identical and people around me that are smart but have very short memories.

    Sure, trophy shops and jewelers commonly can custom engrave metal items for something more permanent

    Default HDS UV light... On SALE October 23rd.

    I thought the issue was how does one know if itís on or off. Not a label indicating itís a uv light. Hence a dot or an o-ring that fluoresces when itís on. Maybe I missed something?

    I think once itís on itís to late. People need to see what it is before they point it at there eyes.
