1. An indicator light assembly comprising:

  • an elongated mounting bar having planar wall means extending longitudinally thereof;

    a plurality of apertures extending through said wall means at predetermined locations along the length of said bar;

    a plurality of indicator lights supported on said mounting bar at predetermined, spaced-apart locations thereon as defined by said apertures, each of said indicator lights having a plurality of electrical connector leads attached thereto and extending therefrom in the same direction whereby each indicator light is freely suspended along one end of a pair of said leads, and said apertures being arranged in laterally adjacent sets, with the rest of leads for each indicator light being contained within a set of said apertures to extend in a direction generally perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of extent of said wall means at a desired position of adjustment along said lead direction, with each of said indicator light being freely supported at a desired height a predetermined displacement distance from said planar wall means only along said one end of a pair of said leads;

    means securing each of said connector leads within said apertures and affixing said leads to said mounting bar only along the opposite ends thereof from said one end, with a predetermined lead portion opposite said one end thereof being exposed for connection to an electrical contact means; and

    each of said connector leads being made of conductive metal which is malleable and bendable, yet rigid enough to be self-supporting and to hold any position to which it is bent, whereby the lengths of said leads projecting outwardly from said mounting bar between said mounting bar and said indicator lights may be bent to any desired angle or configuration so as to orient each of said indicator lights in a predetermined, desired position.
