2 Light Aluminum Cylinder Outdoor Wall Sconce
talk of the neighborhood
These lights are great! They provide a very unique look to the front of my house during the day. Sleek and attractive, and a Very dramatic lighting effect at night. They are a one of a kind look in the neighborhood. The price is excellent compared to other lights of this style that are available. They are easy to install, and your service and delivery is to be applauded. The only negative is the way they mount.
The plate, with the top and bottom screws do not provide a tight fit when attached, and can leave a large gap to fill if you need to shim to acheive a level mount. I would have preferred a tighter fit to the side of my house, but this is still minor. and I am very happy overall, with the lights & with Lighting Direct.

Looks good, but wait...
We bought these lights eight months ago and they look great on our house. The problem is the caps on top of the light. They are built to keep the water and snow out and they are removable so you can change the light when it burns out. The caps are not secured at all and are not snug enough to keep them on the light. I found this out the hard way during an extremely windy day as two of the caps blew off and one landed on my sidewalk, shattering the glass inside the cap. After talking with lighting direct.com, I found out there are no replacements for the caps. I wouldn't buy these for any exposed areas of a house; better suited for something sheltered.

Well built, modern simple look, very dark color
Overall we like the look, the aluminum is thick, glass top cover is crosshatched to diffuse the light out the top and to keep rain out. The top glass is in a rubber ring which needs to be pressed down firmly to stay in place.
The color is way darker than I expected ( never seen Bronze this dark) like very dark brown but it looks good under our carport.
I think it should include a rectangular rubber seal where it screws to the wall... we have vertical tongue and groove siding so I had to put some sealer in the grove to keep bugs out.
Looks really good, glad I bought it ( except it is made in China)

An inexpensive light, but well made.

Worth every penny
I had been wanting this style for some time now and this price was unbeatable. Installed today and they are absolutely gorgeous! Can't wait for tonight to see them lit!

I ordered my lights on-line, and they arrived in only a few days. They look and perform just as they were described.
