Looks Good But Materials are DefectiveI bought four of these for outdoor eave lighting. The appearance and workmanship appear very good, but the internal light socket materials are substandard and not suitable for outdoor locations. After about six months in West Texas where there is little rain and no humidity, two of the lights started flickering occasionally. I had installed CFL PAR bulbs and figured the bulbs were going bad. A week later two of the four bulbs were out. The first problem occurred when I tried to remove the bulbs. The internal rubber grommets are so tight that even when the bulb is unscrewed; it cannot be pulled free of the grommet. The only way to remove the bulb is to break it and remove it in pieces. No problem. The bulbs were bad right? No! Wrong! I installed new bulbs and still no lights. Upon closer examination I found that the metal parts of the internal porcelain socket were badly corroded and there was no contact to the center connector. The threaded side was equally corroded but there was continuity from it to the white wire. No so for the center contact to the black wire. The contact was so corroded and burned from high resistance caused by corrosion that the circuit was open. Both Craft Made fixtures were defective in the same manner after only six months in use they were useless; and I destroyed two good bulbs to remove them and learn this. This product suffers from poor design by using a rubber grommet that is so tight the bulb cannot be removed once installed. And the socket materials are poor quality not suitable for outdoor locations as the specifications state.

Good Quality FixtureWhen I couldn't find a simple outdoor fixture like this locally, I shopped on-line. The electrician who installed this fixture said it was good quality. The only issue with this one like the one it replaced is that it can sometimes be a challenge to find replacement bulbs as the neck is narrower than many of the CFC bulbs have now days.

Good buy, but needs sealantLooks great we with led bulb. Gap between PAR38 bulb and light shroud. Ended up getting water in it - rainfall. Used silicon gel to seal it. Has kept water and bugs out of the gap. Works well as upside down light now. See picture attached.

Very pleasedThe fixtures were a higher quality that what I found in the big box stores. Prompt, free shipping and excellent customer service. The only downside was the installation information was not very good.
Good company, would not hesitate to do business again.

backyard lightsFits perfect under my backyard white soffit. Photo shows ridges in the design but arrived without them. No big deal. It's good quality, serves the purpose and the price was fair. I'm sure they will last for many years to come.

Very Good ProductThe purchasing and shipping experience was very good, no issues. The product quality is very good as well. The only issue is that the inside dimension of the lamp holder is very near that of the outside diameter of the LED lamps that was installed. It was hard, not impossible to install the lamps. Overall, very satisfied.
