In the spring of 1998, Doug and Greg Kennedy, opened a camping
store in Moab, Utah. One night after work, a conversation about
lights and gear led to a concept for an innovative new lighting
device. Clear Products Inc. was founded in 1999 to produce the
first LazerBrite flashlight.
Early on, the US military identified the LazerBrite system as an
important improvement on the chemical lights (glow sticks) it had
been using for decades. In 2005, the company changed from a C corp.
to Tactical Lighting Solutions, LLC (TLS) and expanded the product
line with a number of accessories.
In early 2010, TLS launched the 3rd version of the LazerBrite
system and several new accessories.
