Install side-mount or under-mount lighting without a transformer when you use LMT Mercer's Solar Collecting Post Caps! The solar collecting cap includes a 600 mAh battery and a female accessory connection which attaches to the solar light of your choice or a 2-foot harness extension (sold separately). Connection wires from the solar collecting cap to the light fixture(s) are hidden within your post sleeve and rails for a completely professional look. Mounting templates for all three styles of solar lights are included with the cap for convenient installation.

Please note: this cap acts as a power source and is not itself a post cap light.

The Cape May Solar Collecting Post Cap has an architectural look and features an unobtrusive 2-1/4 inch square solar panel at the top. It is available to fit 4 inch, 5 inch, or 6 inch post sleeves.

Solar lights and wiring components are sold separately.

Unsure about your size? Measure your posts carefully and use our Post Cap Diagram to understand critical dimensions and ensure a proper fit.
