    Protective Lens

    One of those clear plastic jobs that goes over an automotive light or some such. It provides a bit of focusing to strengthen the beam and some protection, but isn't really an optical element.

Could be set in the outhouse door to admit distorted light. Or flip it over and serve nuts in it.
