Great accent cap lighting
September 24, 2020
Purchased these glass cap lights for my fence posts. The squirrel were chewing holes in my vinyl caps to sharpen their teeth, and they started looking bad. I knew I wanted glass of metal to keep them from chewing through. These not only look great but are a beautiful subtle decorative accent along the fenceline. The only things I would recommend, is to have metal on bottom where you screw onto the fence. The plastic just doesn't seem sturdy enough to last for years. Also extra screws would help, since they are going on a fence post. I lost a couple falling on the neighbors side. Earthen was a great company to work with. Got the product to me promptly. I will recommend them, and will use again!
Solar light is well made and beautiful.

I love the Solar light portion of this fixture and the glow which has a green cast due to the green in the stained glass. However the instructions for affixing the collar to attach it to the post was hard to follow and the screws to attach it with should have been black to blend with the collar rather than silver which totally cheapened the look. I painted the screw heads black and it looked finished. Also, it would be nice to receive at least an extra screw or two.

The plastic isn't the best quality but it works. They are a good brightness at night, just the right amount. Would recommend.

My deck posts are a composite material with odd dimensions of 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 (Outside to outside). The 4x4
is too small, will the adapter adjust the 5x5 so it will fit securely?

I want to use this as an indoor landing post cap, so it will light up the landing area. There are two doors with windows close by, within 3'. Would that provide enough light to recharge the batteries? If not, is there something else that might work?
These fixtures require direct sunlight, not daylight. I would not recommend solar fixtures for an enclosed area. Thank you for your inquiry!

Does the light shine only thru the glass, or does some of it shine down towards the deck?
The Wellington Solar Post Cap Light's LEDs are designed to emit ambient light outwards. They may shine enough to illuminate a short area downward, but they are not designed with downward facing LEDs. The Windsor for example, is designed in this fashion:

What are the overall dimensions of this post cap light? I have a 4x4 wood post, open on three sides. One side has a picket nailed into a standard "2x4" rail. Will this fit within this spacing? (see image attached)
The Wellington Solar Post Cap Light Tiffany Style dimensions are 6.25" x 6.25" at its widest point. However, it looks like the 4" x 4" post is flush with the rail. You would need a raised post to secure the light to, or it would sit loose on top. Thank you for your inquiry!
