Inspection mirrors and magnifiers make it easier to see fine details while examining tiny objects and hidden items. Auto mechanics often use inspection mirrors to see misplaced hardware in hard-to-reach places and read text printed in hidden sections of vehicles. This tool is also useful in warehouses, factories, and homes for the same purposes. Security officers also use these mirrors to inspect the undersides of vehicles. Check the varied selection of inspection tools at Staples to find the right mirrors and magnifiers for your needs.

Bring tiny details into sharp focus with different magnifiers
Unlike binoculars and monoculars, magnifiers are designed for inspecting objects held at close distances. The handheld magnifying glass is the most common type of this tool. It features a convex lens that produces enlarged images of objects placed underneath it. Other types of magnifiers are available for specific purposes. For example, a loupe is a handheld magnifier favored by jewelers, field scientists, and film photographers. It’s a pocket-sized lens that users hold up to one eye for quick examinations of very small details, such as gem qualities and diamond facets.

To read tiny text, choose a magnifying glass or sheet. A magnifying sheet covers a wider area and sits directly on a printed page. It’s ideal for reading small text in books, maps, and technical drawings. Hobbyists and professionals working on mechanical devices with small parts use magnifying glasses on a base with alligator clips for holding objects, such as fishing lures or postage stamps. Both types are hands-free magnifiers.

Key features to look for when shopping for inspection mirrors
These are telescopic wands with a mirror attached to one end. When comparing these inspection tools, consider factors such as maximum handle length, mirror size, swivel angle, and grip. How far the telescopic handle extends determines where and how you can use it. One that extends 30 to 40 inches is ideal for inspecting vehicle engine bays and factory equipment. Longer ones are needed at security checkpoints to look underneath large vehicles.

To avoid dropping the tool, find one with a cushioned, nonslip, and ergonomic handle that provides more comfort over long periods. Don’t just go for the unit with the largest mirror. Sometimes, a small mirror is required, especially for reaching tight spaces. The swivel angle of the tool also determines the extent of its view. For the most flexible unit, pick one with a mirror that can turn 360 degrees.

Should you get a mechanic’s mirror with an LED light?
Yes. An integrated light source improves visibility when using the mirror to inspect dark areas. With this feature, there’s no need to have a flashlight in the other hand while using the tool to peer in dark corners. Models with integrated illumination need batteries to power their LED lamps.

Do inspection mirrors use plastic or glass mirrors?
Both options are available. Plastic mirrors are more affordable and don’t break as easily as glass ones. However, glass mirrors are more reflective, easier to clean, and don’t scratch as readily.

Is mirror shape important when comparing inspection mirrors?
Yes. Round and oval mirrors are the most popular options because they’re easier to navigate in tight spaces than square and rectangular versions.
