Dimmable Tube Guards

These tube guards made from clear tube guards with graduated grid patterned Mylar sleeves inserted inside them. This sleeve allows for personal manipulation of the light. You can spin the tube guard around the bulb, dimming the light to your personal preference. As you rotate the tube guard you can see the shaded area rotates which allows more or less light out.
