Solar Lights for Steps
Looking for some lights to make your steps a little safer after dark? Solar Lights for Steps come in a set of four bronze fixtures that can make a great addition to your safety and security.
The solar lights will attach to the front of the step out of the way of your feet while climbing up or down. They will provide enough light without wires to let you see things that are in the way so that you do not trip and fall.
The advantage of not having to wire these lights and just change the rechargeable batteries every few years is great for those elderly folks. Once you have these fixtures installed you will have to do little work to keep them up.
What do you get in the box
You will receive four fixtures for each purchase. Each fixture will have 2 solar panels, a rechargeable battery, and a single light. The fixtures are 5 3/4″ wide, 4″ high and 1″ deep. They have a durable aluminum case with a bronze finish that is weatherproof. The lights will put out about 15 lumens of light. The lights will last for 6 to 8 hours after dark on a full charge.
These fixtures will mount with two screws or nails(not included). Not knowing the surface that they are mounted to is the reason for no mounting items to be included. There are two notches for the screws or nails to attach to on the back of the fixture. It can be mounted on Wood, Composite or concrete steps with the proper hardware.
These are great fixtures to put down and forget. May need to get more than one set if you have more than four steps. You should have a fixture on each step for the best coverage for your safety and security.
How does it work and taking care of your fixture
Each solar light is powered by an Amorphous solar panel. This is an ultra-thin panel that is used on calculators. This type of Solar Panel will collect energy even on cloudy days. Each set of panels charges a rechargeable battery.
A photocell turns on these lights at dusk. A 1.2 volt 600 mAh Rechargeable battery will come in each light fixture. They will give about 6 to 8 hours of light on a full charge.
Making sure that the photocell is clean will make you light fixture work for a longer period each day. If the light does not last very long and the photocell is clean, check out my post on what to do if one of your solar lights is not working here.
- No wiring needed just mount and wait for the sun to charge
- Easy to mount only two mounting spots on the back of the fixture
- Can be removed for storage just by sliding off mounting hardware
- Mounting hardware not included
- Factory batteries do not last very long and are hard to replace
- Need to have one for each step-light will not be enough to light more than one step
When looking for solar step lights this set of four bronze lights will illuminate four steps without any additional work. After installation just monitor the lights to make sure that the batteries are still keeping a charge. The batteries that come with the sets are weak. If you have more than four steps or your steps are wide you may want to purchase more than one set and put a light on each side.
If this fixture had two mounting notches on the back it would be more stable. Light output will only cover the step it is mounted on.
