Used the Kerr company recommendation of using paper napkins to visualize the placement as they are the same size as the lights. Took about 30 minutes to set up all 14 lights and I marked the side of each box with its distance from a reference point so that the paving crew wouldn't have any questions. They look great and now all the neighbors are jealous, wishing they had thought of installing them.
I wanted to add some more details to this product for those people who are technical like me and couldn't find the information anywhere.
This product ships with a 100W generic-brand el-cheapo transformer, and a 100' of 16/2 low voltage wire. The transformer is really not great quality and I wouldn't expect it to last very long... I had hooked up just half the lights and this thing started to get very warm. After hooking up all the included lights and a few other LEDs (still well under the 100W rating), the thing got too warm and shut itself off after a while. I called customer service (not Home Depot or Kerr - the transformer's manufacturer) about that and they told me to return it to where I purchased. Luckily I had another 150W transformer sitting around.
Anyway, the fixtures themselves are cheap plastic but get the job done. They include a 3M 3-wire connector that will work on up to 16 gauge wire. So if you are using bigger than 16 gauge (e.g. have a longer run or are adding more fixtures than 16 can carry), then you won't be able to use these. You'll either need to manually splice the wires together or strip insulation and be very careful with exposing bare wire). Not a huge deal, but certainly adds to the install effort/time. The instructions say that clamping the wire connector will take "some force," but if you are using anything bigger than 16 gauge you will need to press really hard and rock that connector with your (hopefully adjustable) pliers.
The included bulbs (I think are 4w) are obviously not very bright, and the filtered light through the fixture cover is a bit more yellowish than I would've liked, but the overall effect is pleasing.
Really just can't beat the value on this package. These plastic paver light fixtures are expensive for some reason (I shopped around quite a bit), and this kit gave the best per-fixture price, and it includes a throwaway transformer and some wire, essentially as a free bonus.
Overall I'm pleased with this product, but wanted to give everyone else some more info to chew on. Good luck!
I have had these at my lake house for about four years. Every spring I have to replace at least half of the bulbs in the 28 lights that I have. Also, the light boxes look horrible now and about half of the light covers are broken.
Cons: Appearance, looks horrible after 4 years, have to replace bulbs frequently, light covers get brittle & break easily
I really like my pavers and would recommend highly. Unfortunately the first one I received had a power pack that did not work. I kept working with it but finally took it back and the next worked great. By the way the power pack makes a low hum when it is on (my first pack did not). The only other problem is the lights came with 2 wire connectors per light and you have to have both so any mistakes and you are short connectors.
This kit included everything needed and installation took some time but in the end it was worth it. They were the finishing touch that made my patio look terrific. Very durable construction. Wish they included 7 watt bulbs instead of the 4 watt so they would have been a bit brighter but that is easily fixed by just replacing the bulbs. I would highly recommend this product.
Pros: Unique, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Stylish, Well Made, Nice Design
What a BRIGHT idea. I love these.They were an easy install and look great. This light kit really completes the walkway. The kit was installed in a new paver walkway from my driveway to the front door and look fantastic. I have been getting numerous compliments from all my neighbors and everyone who walks by the house. Very happy with the purchase. They have only been installed for a short time so far but no problems. Hopefully they stay that way. They have been walked on and in the rain and not a single issue.
Excellent instructions, easy hook-up, makes a great project for home do-it-yourselfer. This project has really enhanced the curbappeal of our house, and only took a weekend to complete by myself. This lighting provids saftey and security. I would definetly use these lights in the future and recomend it too anyone.
These lights were just what I was looking for and I got what I expected. I am very pleased about how these lights turned out. I only used 8 lights due to the limitation of the watt output of the system, but they look fantastic on the highest level setting option (level 1-9). The installation could have been a little easier if the maufacturer would have precut the wire ends, but overall pretty easy to install if you have ever used electrical wiring without a harness attachment.
Installed yesterday. Easy to install and were brighter than expected with the 4 watt bulb. Also purchase the 2 light accessory kit. Plenty of wire. Also considering another store had the same lights for $48.00 more for the exact same product. Great Value.
We are very happy with the lighting kit. There could have been a more generous amount of wire. As it was we had to supplement to finish our job. The lights look great when lit however do look a little flimsy during the day.
