Military Spec Kneeboards - Available Exclusively from Sporty's
These kneeboards are currently in use by Air Force and Navy pilots as well as other members of the U.S. Dept. of Defense. They were adopted by the Air Force and Navy because of their proven reliability, high quality, and lightweight construction. The wide elastic strap, contoured bottom with non-slip foam strips, and rounded corners allow for comfortable use. The deluxe model features a rheostat lighting system for both day and night use, and the top clip opens wide enough to hold all but the thickest NACO approach plate books. We feel these Military Spec Kneeboards are the finest of their type-for both day and night flying.

Deluxe Lighted Kneeboard
This deluxe kneeboard features a unique lighting system that incorporates a rheostat for adjusting brightness. Illumination is provided by two long-life bulbs and is distributed over the entire surface by a special prism lens. Operates on three AA batteries (not included). Overall measurements are 10" x 5 1/2"; weighs 16 oz.

P-O-S
The battery cap broke the very first time I installed batteries. Its made of cheap thin plastic. If not the, then one one of the most worthless pieces of crap I ever wasted money on.

Lighted Knee board
Knee board works as expected. The lighting is a little dim toward the bottom of the approach plates but is adequate.

Excellent price and quality
After 45 years of use, my original issue kneeboard finally died! This is the exact replacement, just improved. The lighting is even, the clips are strong and the buckle is a huge step up from the old metal-to-metal one!

Not reliable after short term
Battery case cheap. If batteries discharge they cannot be removed and then unit is dead. Bought two units over time and this happened to both units. Unit has no technology that is newer than 1960. The unit is great short term, but can become paperweight in time. The review here do not speak to usage over any time but short term. The manufacturer has not interest in upgrading the defects.

Pros: Fits thigh pretty well. Light is variable and works well in dark cab. Cons: With batteries it is heavy and noticeable. Batteries drain down over a couple of weeks when not in use. Buckle assembly is difficult to attach or remove and has a sharp edged notching device that catches finger nails when removing. Only has space for one pencil. Attaching belt centers the buckle under the thigh and cannot be adjusted to the side. Works.

I have a deluxe lighted knee board that I haven't used in 15 years and trying to remove the battery cover. Does ti push down and twist off ?
Chuck on Dec 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Push down and twist the cap about 20 degrees counter clockwise and it comes right off.
