Customer Questions & Answers

My spike fixture always takes in rain water (and then shorts). What am I doing wrong?

Asked by: jim
Mine was doing this and I found that I needed a new gasket to keep the rain out. Hope this helps!

why isn't the bulb needed listed?

You need to list the bulb needed and have a link to it.

Is the rubber gasket supposed to touch the light bulb?

With the gasket mounted at the edge of the socket, (the way it came and looks in photos) the rubber doesn't meet the bulb. Should it? We've only had it 2 weeks and rain water is getting in around the bulb and corroding the interior. The only way to get it to meet the bulb is to reverse the gasket and position it to tighten against the socket end and the bulb as I screw in the bulb. I don't know if the rubber will melt if I do that. The bulb had water INSIDE it and the silver coating that is INSIDE the bulb has come off. I noticed because that it was emitting light on the back side. It may be a bad bulb, but that's when I noticed the corrosion already inside the outer socket. Thoughts?
Asked by: Janey
depending on the size and shape of the bulb you choose, some bulbs sit right up against the gasket when screwed in.. some like the smaller or longer ones don't.. the only real way to prevent water from entering this is to have a bulb that will sit against the gasket when it's screwed in.. then put electrical tape around it to prevent water from entering..

Customer Reviews

Weatherproof Portable Spike Light is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great when they work. The rubber gaskets designed to keep the water out of the housing are completely useless. The second it rains even a little bit, water gets in there and it trips the circuit. Very poorly designed. Should not be made for the outdoors at all, unless you live somewhere where it rains once a year. Not even worth the $4.97 the sell for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont waste your money I live in southern california. It hardly ever rains. We got one rain storm this christmas season and water got into the fixture. The gasket is useless. Tripped my gfi recepticle and was unable to use thereafter. Water stayed trapped inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for lighting brush The spike lights work as they should. Feels very well made. I used LED Par38 lamps to light up over 500 feet of trees and brush line around my property. There was no rain but the rubber seal seems to be very snug on the base of my lamps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After further review…if you use the right bulb, Five Stars all the way! I really liked to product but with one gigantic reservation which has been overcome by using the correct type of bulb. Make sure you use an outdoor bulb which also says “suitable for wet locations” or “weatherproof”; the ones that aren’t suitable are intended for under soffit or awnings and will have problems. I used a 90W Par38 Feit LED Dimmable Weatherproof bulb and after a couple of months with plenty of rain the bulb continued to work great and there was no evidence of corrosion at the bottom of the bulb or inside the fixture. I have to add that the manufacturer made astounding efforts to understand the problem and assist in fixing it. I fully recommend the product and given the company’s conduct with me, would trust their other products as well.
