I have another old Universal Klip-Light, which I love. However, the maker of this light must have changed. I ordered this because my first one is great, and I use it all the time. I ordered another so that my son could have his own. This new one seemed nothing like my original one. Matter of fact, it didn't even have a name on it anywhere, which makes me wonder if it even is a Universal Klip-Light, like the company claims it to be. The lamp part of it, once clipped to the music stand, will not stay upright, but rather falls down until it is hanging, so that it is not useable! It would fall immediately down when I first got it, but after tightening the screws as hard as possible, it still slowly falls down. This seems like a cheap copy of the original product. Other things different than the original are that the power chord is too short, so you must either use an extension chord or be right next to an outlet to use it, and the lamp light itself is very loose inside of the light holder. I would NOT recommend this product!!

Close but needs TLC

By Rev. Poindexter

Comments about Giardinelli Universal Klip-Light:

I've bought several to use with my Manhasset Voyager stands. They are convenient, compact and a good value, but make sure you check the power cord to light socket connections right out of the box. I've had two that nearly caught fire because the cord was sloppily installed. The nuts that hold the clamp together need to be checked and retightened frequently. Monitor the weak points and this item will serve you well.

Spring for the manhasset...

By Chris-BrR8A

from providence, ri

Comments about Giardinelli Universal Klip-Light:

I am a working musician of 20 years with lots of theatrical/show experience. Some of the older and more traditional shows with over sized books are difficult to use with this light. The arm angle makes it difficult to turn pages and keep the music flat on the stand. It's fine quality and functionality, but only of your music is no taller then the music stand plate.

    Comments about Giardinelli Universal Klip-Light:

    I have used similar lights for many years. These lights are well put together, hold up on Manhasset or Wenger style stands and also on Band Fronts. The light distribution is very good and you can put enough into a drum style travel case to outfit a big band or show orchestra. My only complaint is the they used to come with a light bulb and now do not, so allow a little extra above your purchase price to get some lights.

      Comments about Giardinelli Universal Klip-Light:

      Purchased five to use in our church praise and worship team during worship services. They work great and light up the music wonderfully. I used tubular light bulb (aquarium bulb) which I purchased at local hardware store.

      We no longer have to continue to purchase batteries for battery operated stand lights which is a pain!

              Review of Klip-Light...

              By Henry Grilk

              from PA

              Comments about Giardinelli Universal Klip-Light:

              Over the years I've purchased literally dozens of these Klip-lights and have had electrical wiring problems with most of them... particularly those I purchased during the 2001 and later period, and up to abotu 2 years ago. The insulation on the wires was typically stripped back VERY far... like 1" to 1 1/2"... resulting in many short circuits, burned sockets, and electrical shocks !!!!! So, I've adopted a policy of disassembly and repair upon receipt !!!!!! This solved the poor electrical connection quality problem, but it was a pain in the a-- to do. Once repaired, these lights are terrific. They do a MUCH better job of illuminating the music on my stand than any of the battery powered LED thingies. The good news is that of my most recent purchase (5 lights), all had a much higher quality electrical connection requiring no repairs. Yes, occasionally it's necessary to tighten the screws, but that's an insignificant issue that doesn't diminish my (now) 5-star rating.

              I prefer AC over DC. Does a great job lighting up my musical life. Adjusts easily. Good clamping power. Bulb is common enough that you won't have to special order it, which is lame. Two thumbs up.

              from Pittsburgh, PA

              Comments about Giardinelli Universal Klip-Light:

              This is exactly what you see on most professional gigs where stand lights are provided (orchestras, musical pit orchestras, etc.) This is an excellent price and the light is sturdy and will probably last forever. It would be a perfect 10 if it came with a bulb. All in all I am very happy with the purchase. When the light first arrives you might need a screw driver to tighten the 2 adjustment screws. I did. This is very common but easy to quickly fix.

              Comments about Giardinelli Universal Klip-Light:

              This is something you would have made in Shop class in the '60s. Simple piece of sheet metal attached to a clip which is way too hard to open (and does not open very far). Then in Electric shop you would unartfully screw in the bulb receptacle, leaving the wire hanging in the way of your music. This is really a light for a painting or photo display.

              Comments about Giardinelli Universal Klip-Light:

              I like this music stand light very much however even with the lightest bulb I can find a 40 watt tube bulb the top of the light bends down at the bottom hinge point and will not stand upright as it should I've tried to heighten the screw but its already as tight as it gets. I think its the power cord that is dragging it down and I am now in the process to see if I can find a way of taking the weight of the cord off the pivot point just haven't had the time to figure this one out but I'm sure I will. at this point I can not recommend this product to anyone.

                    I've been using a new design light, L.E.D. or whatever. I'm switching back to this traditional light with the standard tube bulb. It's basic, stable and lights the music well. The new one is constantly moving around and, in my opinion, doesn't really light up the music as well as these traditional style lights. These lights are inexpensive and work very well. Why spend all kinds of money for something that doesn't need to be improved. They can loosen up over time and may need tightening of the screws, no big deal.
