"As most of the trade reviewers have said this is a simple, does what it does, exterior lantern. I brought three to replace three varying style, rusted metal rubbish ones No chance of metal rot with these plastic and polycarb versions. I liked the back plate feature which allows for fixing and wiring and then plugging in the lantern. Very easy to wire and fix. Not sure why one of the DIY reviewers found the wiring instructions complicated. Live, neutral, earth is about a simple as it gets when connecting a cable! Also to be expected there are some cuts out to do depending on how the cable enters the unit. This isn't a fault in my opinion just common sense."

PIR coach light

"I would have given this 5 stars but its only just up on the wall and the customer end user will determine that.
The lamp is secured to the back plate with screws top and bottom, quite easy to lose so look out. It needs a firm grip to remove the back plate from the lamp body, this is due to a nice feature, the lamp plugs into the back plate. No more wishing you had a third hand to support the weight whilst you wire up.
Out of the box the light looks a bit plasticky (ok it's made from plastic) but once up,on the wall it looks smart.
Once energised there is not much to set up, it just works.
Customer was happy and requested another for elsewhere!

"OK, easy enough to install but I wish some one would think of a better way to access the bulb other than machine screws which; a) you can so easily drop and b) all too readily corrode so that next time you need to change the bulb you can't undo them"

Good Lantern
8 Nov 2012
By BarbelNick
, Horncastle
"I too have fitted a good few of these and agree 100% with what the other electrician said, they are a very reliable, robust lantern. Metal ones look tatty after a few months. Electricians only fit reliable kit because if they become faulty, you have to replace them free of charge, which is wasted labour time."

Made in BLIGHTY !

"I've fitted a few of these and after reading some negative views on here I think the record needs setting straight.Is it going to rust and go all flaky and white? No its polycarbonate.If the kids football hits it will it smash ? No its polycarbonate.Can you adjust time, lux operation level or sensitivity ? No, but thats good as its preset spot on at 2-3 mins and theres less to go wrong as sensor is far more reliable than one with adjustment pots ( trust me i'me an electrician) never had one of these go faulty.Does it feel lightweight ? Yes 'cause its polycarbonate so of course its light, but thats good, less likely to pull the wallplugs out / come loose.The terminal box is not very big ( they never are ) no problem just take care with routing / wire length.Its a good design and best of all, its MADE in ENGLAND."

Needs rethinking
12 Oct 2013
By Mycoxelectrical

"Initial impression is it's cheap plastic, very light, flimsy and overpriced;but it grows on you, it wont rust, is a doddle to fit and when installed looks the part.
But like most things the difference between mediocre and great is just 10% in the detail, there's a recess cut in the backplate for the cable to enter, but not a corresponding one in the cover so it wont sit flush to the wall without butchery, if the cable is fed from the bottom recess it routes immediately behind the fixing screw holes inviting you to drill through the cable, the instructions say weatherproof the lantern with silicon sealant which if it was made properly would not be needed., time will tell how it stands the weather!

Over priced at £29.99
3 May 2011
By toytownsparks

"Very poor item no adjustment so you are just left with factory setting.
Metal one only £26.99 looks a lot better than this lantern. Would say it is only worth £9.99 at the most, i will never be purchasing this item ever again.
Just avoid at all costs or you will be just as disappointed with it as i am.
I struggled to give this 1 star again stay clear

poor features and quality
8 Nov 2009
By SparkandPlumb
, Solihull
"Bit too flimsy and cheap construction.
Not possible to alter the time on or the darkness level of the PIR unlike all the other similar units I have bought in the past.
Doesn't fit together well.
I do not know about reliability yet."
