You will receive 8 plastic heads and post finished in black in the box.  The only assembly will be putting the head on the post and installing the battery.

Your fixture will be 16 inches tall and 5 inches around at the top. Photocell controls when the light is on.  Fixture does not have an on and off switch.

How it works

A photovoltaic cell converts the suns light to an electrical current to charge the batteries. Six hours of direct sunlight for charging the batteries will give you the best results for this light with about 8 to 10 hours of illumination.  

A photocell turns on the light at dusk and turns it off at dawn.  Rechargeable batteries can be changed when the lights do not give a full night's illumination.
