Line voltage 4x4 post light


Is there a line voltage light (or special box) designed to be mounted to the top of a 4x4? I replaced a fence section at my father-in-laws house that had a light on top of a 4x4 (round base "adapted" to fit). All I can find are solar and low voltage, which he doesn't want.

I have not seen fixtures specifically designed to fit 4x4 posts, but found it pretty straight-forward to modify a square post to make it work. I was able to create a round section on the end of a 4x4 post to which I could mount a standard pole light fixture.

Didn't think of this, good idea. You might check with a local supply house (not box store) to see if they can find an adapter that will mount onto a 4x4 and will have a round mounting arm on it.
