When I discovered my Stanley Tripod flashlight had a battery acid leak, it was, unfortunately, exactly when I needed a tripod flashlight the most — for fixing a leak under my sink.

I went to my flashlight drawer and realized I already have plenty of flashlights, all I really needed was the tripod. I remembered seeing that Maker Shed sells a GorillaPod flexible camera tripod with magnetic feet, and that’s when the light bulb went off.
