    You can pick up one of these lights at Dollar Tree or ebay. They are battery powered and shut off when in contact with the magnet. AWESOME!!!!!

    They are LED,,,will probably never burn out. They run on three little batteries...Not sure what kind...the whole unit is a dollar. Now that I think of it, I should of bought another to put on the other side.

    I just use my overhead console lights. They're LED too.

    This is a nice idea though!

    True, true. I have my LEDs on order. But this way, no need to reach overhead. The light goes on when you open the console.

    Did you get this at Dollar Tree?? Difficult making out all of this. Am I seeing the switch? Is the light on the side the one you purchased? Maybe a picture of the light unmounted would help. I'm interested but not able to determine what I am looking for. Checked ebay quickly and saw nothing like it.. Sorry to be a pain.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    You are correct. The switch is on the lid. That is the magnet. When closed, the magnet touches the light to turn it off.

    This light is also called a magnetic closet light.

    Went to ebay and got the 4 for 9 something w/free shipping. There are a lot of places I can use these things. You should have bought stock in their company before posting. LOL. Again, Thanks a lot.
