Thank you for looking at Portable Lighting Solutions revolutionary NEW concept in balloon light. My name is Craig Shellman. I invented the next best thing since sliced bread for the balloon lighting industry.
I have been a heavy equipment mechanic for 38 years ending up working for a large road and bridge builder for the last 19 years. Over the course of life, I have had to do plenty of nighttime breakdowns and have always used a flashlight or whatever to get the job done. It sucked.
In June of 2018 I was on an asphalt paving crew working nights. It was my first experience working nights, every night, all night. I took a battery pack, a pole, and a light bulb to the streets. Very crude but it worked. I knew it was inefficient garbage and that is what got me thinking about my light. I needed a bright, lightweight, easy to deploy, and strong light to put up with the rigors of construction lighting. Ever since then I took it upon my own to come up with a strong design.
I tried different ideas from a basic bird cage with light bulbs to reflective apparatuses. Then in December 2018 it hit me. It was like the flux capacitor thing, it really was. I envisioned the concept of what have here for a locking slide of my light. I locked myself in my garage for 8 days and developed my latch design with a Dremel tool and pieces of tubing. That is when I knew I had a solid design and knew I had to take it to the next step.
In January of 2019 I approached a machine shop in town to transform my parts to Computer Aided Design, manufactured parts. Between the help of my machine shop and my new Senior Design Engineer, we were able to knock it out of the ballpark. Throughout 2019 I ended up purchasing various pieces of equipment to prototype/build my product. After another 16 months of prototyping, testing, and redesigning, I know I have produced the best balloon light on the planet.
I am sure you will see its revolutionary design is far superior to the others.
Thank you for looking at my light.
