Questions & Answers


What type of fuse is required

Asked by Willie December 15, 2017

Thank you for your email. No fuse is required. This fixture comes with a 5ft. power cord that plugs directly into a 120v 3-prong grounded outlet.

Is this a metal diamond plate?What are the dimensions?

Asked by dbarr021 September 18, 2016

No, It just looks like. But it helps to reflect light! This light actually works good in my shop. The size is about 48" long by 10" wide I put up 5 in my shop and its about 20' by 20' and it good for me. Hope this helps. Don

What is the best bulbs to buy and how long

Asked by Jake June 28, 2016

Thank you for your email. You can use any F32T8 4ft. bulb.

Can this fixture be hard wired to a switch

Asked by Rich May 16, 2016

Rich, You can wire it to a switch But you would have to cut the plug off. If you just wire a 120 Volt outlet to a switch you can still have the plug. This will make it easier to maintain the light fixture if you need to move it or replace parts. Hope this helps!! Don

How many Lumens does light produce?

Asked by Tom January 12, 2016

The output will depend on the bulbs you purchase. For example, if the bulbs are 2000 lumens each, then the output would be 6000 lumens.

Outdoor application?

Asked by Gevuar September 24, 2015


Can I use T8 LED bulbs?

Asked by azchaudhry February 18, 2015

I also have this fixture and am using LED bulbs. Very bright with 3 LED bulbs. I don't know why their customer support says no.

Does the unit come with an electrical cord?

Asked by Larryb November 21, 2014

Yes, it is prewired with a grounded plug on about 6 feet of cord.

What color is the reflector behind the lights?

Asked by AntiqueCarGuy December 29, 2013

The reflector is a bright and shiny silver color to reflect the light and give you the most efficient lighting output it can.

Do I need to use all the 3 bulbs OR will this work with 1 or 2 bulbs as well?

Asked by RoyD November 4, 2013

You need to use all three bulbs to have the light fixture operate properly.

Good looking, lots of light, but.....
I bought two of these today from my local Home Depot. They looked great in the store display. I had originally planned on getting the 4-light Lithonia heavy duty work light but these had the nice reflective chrome finish vs. the grey finish on the 4-light. The 3 light actually looks brighter than the 4-light due the reflective chrome finish. Be advised, you cannot surface mount these lights. The reflector shroud is screwed AND riveted to the base. Also, the build quality is horrible. I'd almost call it a heavy gauge aluminum foil. The unit is so light that it won't hang level without lights because the weight of the cord will pull down on one side canting the whole unit up. With the bulbs in and the cord twist tied up, I could get the light fairly level. I also found it impossible to insert the bulbs with the light hanging up. Believe it or not the bulbs will not fit without pushing the ends out a bit. On the positive side, the bulbs seem to "lock" into the sockets - better than any of my old T12 utility lights. With the bulbs in their sockets and "locked" in, the unit seemed much more solid and stiff like the bulbs were designed to structurally stiffen the unit. Build quality aside, once the light was up, it looked great. Turns on instantly with no flickering and puts out lots of light.

Lithonia 3- lamp fixture
Lithonia had a good idea, unfortunately the flimsy construction overrides the good idea. Fixture hangs crooked. Sockets do hold the lamps in tight. Light output is good size is good, just too light weight of metal that the fixture is constructed of. A heavier gage metal would mAke this a quality fixture. Price is WAY to high for this product.

Nice light
I bought this online/ship to store to add the same light to my existing one for more light in garage. Works well even to low temperatures in Ohio. Unfortunately damaged during shipping and not noticed until package was opened. Not damaged enough to go through trouble of taking back to store and waiting a few more weeks. Since it is dark colored it is hardly noticeable unless you know what to look for.

Cheap construction
This is a poorly made product, thin metal, portions arrived bent.

Great Light Output
This light uses 3 T8 bulbs. Lots of light in the garage. These lights come on as soon as you throw the switch. Be careful because corners are sharp. The bulbs were difficult to install and turn. That's why I gave the light 4 stars. Would I buy another one, absolutely.
BEST lights ever
I started with buying 3 of these lights in our new garage. They were awesome right out of the box. They are a bit pricey at $39.99 each but having that 3rd bulb in the center sure kicks off a ton of light. I bought 2 lights afterwards at Menards of a different brand and only 2 bulbs. They didn't kick out the same amount of light so I ordered 3 more online as my local store discontinued carrying them in black.
A very nice little light
I have bought 12 of these and had no problems with any of them. They are sturdy, easy, and ready to go right out of the box. You do have to hang them with the provided chains but this set up worked out well for me.
