Neat, Clean Lines and Cheap
on 14 June 2014
I bought two of these items in B&Q a while back and decided that I liked them so much I would buy some more for the rest of the perimeter of my house. Of course B&Q did not stock them anymore but fortunately Amazon did - and at a cheaper price.
These are not ornate large lights that would be some sort of centerpiece. They are small and discrete which is something I wanted. They are not much bigger than the GU10 lamp that is fitted.
Quality is pretty good and fitting is easy enough if you can use a drill and have a basic understanding of DIY and electrics. Nothing scary about it at all.
They come supplied with a halogen GU10 lamp but I have already made the decision to use LED's simply because they are so efficient and long lasting.
If there is one thing I would recommend is a little bit of grease on the thread of the removable cover. The bottom of the light unscrews from the top bit and on some of these lights can be a bit tight. That's the nature of stainless steel as it has a tendency to bind slightly. Typically in engineering we would use a white grease made for SS applications, but a bit of Vaseline or copperslip anti-seize is fine. Just wipe off the excess so you don't spoil the look of the light when fitted.
