Installed Cobrahead

Installed Cobrahead

I decided to replace the bucket light with the M250R2.
Also, while installing the cobrahead, I rotated it a little bit and the steel threads scratched the leveling steps. Should I be worried about that?

Looks good! No you shouldn't worry about scratching the leveling steps. As long as you didn't crack the casting or break a chunk off it you're fine. Just be careful opening/closing the door since the hinges like to break on M-250R2s.

One problem with this setup is that the pipe isn't long enough to allow you to get the door on or off without removing the fixture completely, but that probably won't be an issue here.

You don't need to remove the light completely. To remove the door, just loosen the slipfitter and turn the light 90 degrees on its side. That will allow plenty of clearance for the door to be removed. But yeah, in operating position, the light needs around 18" of clearance between the hinges and the pole.

Yesterday, I upgraded this pole by adding a 90 degree bend, so now it's around 9 feet high. I also changed the socket position to shine a little more light to the house side.

Socket position 1 allows for Type II distribution and Position 1.5 allows for Type III distribution with a clear ED23.5 lamp and FCO optics. Type II will spread the light further to the left and right and spread less light in front of the fixture. Type III will push more light in front of the light (for wider streets or streets with sidewalks) and as a result, less light will be thrown to the left and right (aka up and down the street) so closer pole spacing is required.

Look at the socket bracket. Says it right on there where the screws are. In the picture the socket is adjusted for Type III. If you moved the socket closer to the latch on the door, you changed the distribution to Type II, the long and narrow one.

What about position 2? It's an option on the socket bracket.
