The days are getting shorter and the availability of daylight while tailgating is getting more scarce. Just wait until the United States turns back the clocks in a few weeks and it will start getting dark much earlier. That’s why we were glad to discover the Luminoodle Light Rope.
The Luminoodle is a flexible, waterproof, illumination source that provides a bright, spread out light to light up your nighttime tailgate. Luminoodle comes with universal ties, embedded magnets, a utility loop and a lantern bag so you can stick, strap, hook or hang it to add light to your tailgating space. It is powered by any USB battery or power source so there is no worry about not having a power source in the middle of the parking lot.
We recently had the opportunity to test out the Luminoodle Light Rope at a recent San Diego Chargers game. After the game was over, the parking lot is always a mess and takes a while to let the parking lot traffic die down. A perfect opportunity to test the Luminoodle Light Rope in the dark as we let the parking lot empty out.
(Disclaimer: We received a sample of the Luminoodle Light Rope free of charge. The fact this sample was provided to us for free in no way influenced our opinion of the product nor did it impact our ability to test and review the product fairly and objectively.)
As you can see in the photo gallery above, the Luminoodle Light Rope does a great job lighting up our tailgating space. We easily attached the Luminoodle Light Rope to our vehicle’s lift gate and the entire space was lit up. We also liked the fact that the power source has LED lights within it. You can point it in a direction and use it as a flashlight. We used it to look in the cooler and find a soda rather than a beer, because we were going to be driving once the parking lot emptied out. The light was great and we didn’t freeze our hand off fishing for a can until we found the one we wanted.
Once the parking lot cleared out and it was time to head home. The Luminoodle Light Rope was easily packed up, wound up into a circle and placed in the carrying bag. As many of us know, whenever a product arrives brand new, getting it back into the original packaging is next to impossible. Not with the Luminoodle Light Rope. Unpacking and packing it away was simple and fast.
Some major features of the Luminoodle Light Rope:
- ULTRA BRIGHT: 5 ft. (1.5 m) LED strip produces 180 lumens of light.
- HANG ANYWHERE: Universal Ties, magnets, & utility loop for easy hanging.

After taking it tailgating and thoroughly putting the Luminoodle Light Rope through it’s paces, it is definitely “Tailgate Approved”. The 5′ version will cost you less than $20 and for a total of 10 feet, is less than $30 if purchased directly from Amazon.
