Fig.1 Cups hooks
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Cordless drill with drill bit 
Coffee hooks
Ni-cad flashlight (2)

Mrs Black had a idea, if there is smoke in your home, she would be on her knees to get out of the house. She wanted my repair serviced to install two NiCad battery lamps in her kitchen lower cabinets. The flashlight would serve double duty, they would help find elusive pots and pans. But what would be the item to hold the NiCad flashlights, it was decided that simple coffee hooks would be used to hold the flashlight from their safety harness.

This post shows the five steps to installing two NiCad battery flashlight in the kitchen cabinets for emergency use.  
Step 1: Fig.1 Above right shows the coffee cup hooks. Fig.2 below shows the Ni-cad flashlight and the exact location of each light.
