HD had a little problem with shipping to the store but they handled that well with little fuss. I got the light, read the directions and promptly loaded the batteries wrong so I thought it didn't work. But... I checked my work and found my error. The light worked well once I got the batteries in right. I bought it to detect pet stains. So far I believe it will not detect really old stains but it will certainly show fresh stains. I tested it on an Underpad with a fresh pet stain and on an area of carpet that had been stained and cleaned some time ago but still retained an odor. At this point I am satisfied with the light but will continue to test.

Garbage - Main switch has broken on 2 units so far - I will keep returning them for replacements until the manufacturer gets it right. Until then I would avoid this product.

This is a black light sold for use in finding scorpions. I used it to find where a relative's pet left spots in our carpet. It works great and we can clean up right away! More powerful and better to use than the ones sold by pet stores! Great price too.

If your a teacher, detective, or enthusiast of those Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Scooby Doo, and Werewolf Vampire Movies starring Kate. Then you'll definitely want to purchase this LED UV Flashlight for your lessons with the scouts. I say this for several reasons, one of which is that LED Black Light assists and aids the naked eye in discovering clues that the eye would otherwise not see. This is termed augmentation. Police use augmentation at crime scenes to isolate various fluids from the body such as blood, etc. Secondly as a teacher it is important to always guide the pupils "Home" and in the proverbial logistic sense this offering from the Home Depot simply can not be beat as that teaching tool. The reason lies in between the letters U and V, as home is where you hang your hat and that same hat is what an arresting Police Officer asked his or her detainee to put their belongings in when arrested. Plus a tool such as this is great for artists in the creation of glow posters!

I have hardwood floors that have lots of "spots" from spills, stains & cleaning over the years. We also have a cat that adopted us who occasionally leaves a putrid scent around the house (marking territory?). The scent eventually goes away, but I'd still like to wash those spots down. Anyway, I could NOT find the exact location of the odoriferous stains with this flashlight. It flashes a purple light so all the spots on the floor now have a purple background, but so what? I could see the spots without flashing the light. In terms of stain recognition, I don't understand what exactly this light is supposed to do. As I'm writing this review, I realized perhaps I should not have used it in the daytime. Maybe it only works in the dark. ... ?

No better way to make sure the carpet has been thoroughly cleaned up from pouch accidents. The light worked as advertised and is nicely packaged in a metal case. Bright enough to use in daylight conditions. Delivered promptly by Home Depot. Too bad they don't carry them in the local stores.

With increasing infestations of Bed Bugs in New York City. And most people not disposing of infested materials (e.g. Beds, clothing & furniture) properly. This should become a must have in every home. Construction is solid for the value and It does what is advertised. Just a quick reminder for those who haven't seen an episode of CSI. Remember to also purchase UV Safety glasses, which is recommended by the company.

I got this light to detect animal stains on carpet in my rental units. I tested it out in my own home on an area that I know my dog had an accident. It really does work!
