Customer Questions & Answers

What size pole is needed to use the pole mount option?

Asked by: scbebu
The instructions that came with it says to use a pole with an outside diameter of 1.625" (1 5/8 inches). I used 1 1/4 inch PVC conduit that has an outside diameter of 1.66". This fit with room to spare. You could probably use 1 1/4 inch metal electrical conduit as well, IMC or Rigid. 1 1/4 inch EMT conduit might be a bit small and the clamp that comes with the light might not tighten down well.

Does it have an arm like the one on the utility pole does?

Could you give more details.
Asked by: Mike
No it does not come with a pole. You have to provide your own pole. The recommended size is 1.625" (1 5/8 inch) outside diameter.

42 Watt Fluorescent Yard Light, Metallic is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great. Doesn't work long. I put this light above my garage door about 2 years ago. When the light went out I expected that I needed a new bulb. I went to Home Depot to buy a bulb, only to find they didn't stock them. I went online and sent away for 2 bulbs since I had to pay shipping anyway. When they arrived, it turned out that the lamp itself had failed. Since I now had lights in stock I got another lamp and and put it on the old mount. I'm not thrilled that the fixture only lasts a couple years, but for $25 what can you expect. If you put this in a place that is easy to get to, it's not bad. Expect to get a new one in a couple of years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great and bad I purchased one 1 Year ago for the Backyard to keep an eye on my Dogs at night. It is still working great. 6 Months after that i purchased 2 more because of the price. One for the side and one in the front of the House. The one one the side started to not turn on some nights. I was going to tell my Son about this,but, it was staying on all the time again. 3 Months ago it quit and is off,it has not been coming back on. The same has happened to the one in front, it finally went out 1 month ago. My son checked this light and said it was not the thing that makes it go on and off but some kind off dodat that he cant fix.( sorry i cant remember the names he said). I'm going to buy one more because of the price and let everyone know how this one is working out

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wanted a low elec useage yard light I just picked the fixture up. I wanted to use even less than 44watts. I bought a 15 W = 90 W LED bulb. Which won't work in the fixture. The fixture has a fluorescent ballast in the fixture. Which is why the bulb is special. The bulb has no ballast in it. After reading the reviews that said the fixture/bulb failed within a short period. I disassembled the fixture, 4 screws under the snap in reflector. When/if the fixture fails.It would take 15 minutes to remove the ballest, connect the electrical line thru the photocell (the hot line) connect the neutral (white) wire directly to the light bulb socket. It will then use any fluorescent bulb, LED bulb or regular light bulb. I have it apart now. I am trying to decide if I should junk out the fixture ballast now & save 27watts of electricity right away. the 44watt bulb = 203 incandescent watts. the LED 15 watts = 90 incandescent watts. The fixture with the photocell is worth $23. I would like to buy the fixture less the bulb for even less money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great for 1 year Loved the light output for the time the bulb lasted-1 year of constant use,not bad.. But real pain finding replacement bulbs. and cost almost as much as buying new unit and had to pay for shipping. Home Depot does not sell the bulbs instore.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from defective prodcuts I like this light because it can be connected to a pole and light bulb lasts a long period of time. I used to order them at local stores, but this time I was disappointed not the product itself, it is the problem of shipping process because I ordered two lights, both are defective (not working) and the light bulbs are used,I suggest your workers need to examine the products closely before ship to the customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price This light is really bright. I have only had it for about 2 months but so far it works great. The reason I only give it 4 stars is because I dont care for the way the mount is designed. It is also all plastic but if you handle it with some care its not bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice light This gives plenty of light, no need for the larger 65 watt flourescent. Bulbs and photosensors are available at Menards, but they get almost twice the price for a similar model, and only have it on-line.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Metallic? I bought this after my HPS yard light stopped working. It had a bad ballast and the replacement part was more expensive than this light. The name says metallic, but it's actually metallic looking plastic. The light is really bright and worked well for almost two years. Then the photocell (automatic switch mechanism) burned out and I can't find parts. Anyway, for the price I can just buy a whole new light and swap the whole thing out. Not bad, but seems like it should last longer than two years.
