Tip - Trouble light, Use CFL bulb
The problem with trouble lights, using a regular bulb, breaks too easily. It just takes a small knock and Boom! For years I used the heavy duty bulbs called Rough Duty. The bulb glass itself is thicker so they are more difficult to break when bumped. And they work! However there is better.I
Several years ago I was at a friend's house garage and he was using a CFL bulb (Compact Fluorescent Light) in his trouble light. He told me had been using them for years and they don't break. Of course I had to try it and see for myself. I tried using CFL bulbs around my house and l don't like the light they give off, good for a garage, not for a home, not even for a closet. (Since I've switched to LED for most of my indoor lighting with the highest K (Kelvin) wave length). But for a trouble light, CFL is terrific. I don't mind the light, it's fine, and boy has it taken some real smacks without breaking!
