I know this might seem to be an afterthought when it comes to your home inspection tool list, but this has to be one of the most valuable accessories that I use on my inspections (and probably the least expensive one as well)!
This flashlight holster slips onto my belt each morning (in addition to my Leatherman multi-tool) and stays on for the whole day of inspecting. My Streamlight flashlight slides right into the holster, and is never farther away than my left hip.
Having a convenient place to keep my flashlight allows me the freedom to use both hands to open the electric panel or enter info into my phone. I always know where my flashlight is, and can easily reach it when needed.
I often find myself reaching for my flashlight when I’m doing things around the house on weekends. Maybe I’ll just start wearing it all the time…
