HAVING obtained much success with its rubber lamps,especially tail lamps for motor vehicles, Flexible Lamps, Ltd., 59, New Oxford Street,
London, W.C.1, has now produced a rubber side tamp for commercial vehicles. The aim has been to design a lamp which, whilst having all the advantages of being unbreakable, is smart enough to be usable on the most handsome of modern passenger and goods vehicles, and satisfactory as regards fitting, illumination power, etc.
The new lamp, which retails at 32s. per pair, has a one-piece moulded rubber body, incorporating two stout horizontal lugs, through which 4-in. holes are provided to permit fitting on to vertical pillars. The glass (a spare glass is provided with each lamp) is inserted between rubber flanges formed in the frontal rim, whilst the chromiumplated reflector and metal socket and cable terminal are fixed into the rear of the body. The glass has an effective diameter of 31 ins., the overall diameter being 41 ins. The pillar holes are 51 ins. apart (centres), whilst the frontto-rear measurement, including the cable fitting, is 5 ins. The weight of the lamp, without bulb, is only 1 lb. 2 on.
