How to Care for Your Torch
There are do’s and don’ts with everything we do. From the smallest tasks to the bigger, more tedious tasks. When buying tools, it’s much easier to be made aware about the do’s and don’ts of handling your products, because a cute little instruction manual is always in the back of the box whenever you need it. But they’re rarely used. For battery powered tools such as torches, owners often forget that maintenance and handling your tools are important. Here are some do’s and don’ts of handling your toolbox torches.
- store your torch in a dry, cool place that’s convenient and easy to find in an emergency or power outage.
- replace the batteries in your torch or lantern every few months if it isn’t used for extended periods of time. This insures that it has fresh, working batteries and prevents battery leakage.
- keep multiple torches and store them in easy to find locations in your house and car (in a in your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, car compartment) in case of emergencies.
- keep a new pack of batteries next to your torches, or anywhere in the house. Families often find that batteries haven’t been replaced frequently or that children have removed the batteries to use in other household devices. Keeping an unopened pack of batteries where you store your torch gives you surety of never having to panic when there is a power outage.
- store your torch in high temperature locations. This could accelerate defects in your torch, including possible battery leakage.
- leave your torch under the seat in your car, or in direct sunlight. These counts for high temperature storage places.
- If your torch isn’t water proof, don’t overexpose it to water or store it in humid areas.
Torches are much more important than you think, get yours today, and you’ll never be stuck in the dark ever again!
