These are the two photo controls I have. I'd bought the clear Tork at Lowes a while ago. Then yesterday I saw the blue one at Lowes, I couldn't find them before, but they are with the lamps. So having always liked blue photocells, I got one. It's cool because it says you can program it to turn off after a certain time at night and back on in the morning. Plus it's supposed to memorize the time and set automatically for daylight savings.

I found Lowes had that clear Tork one for 120V and a maroon one that's for 277V units. Lowes had a clear one similar to the Tork, this blue Defiant one and another blue without the programmable feature. Walmart had a clear Brinks one.

It's interesting the size difference between the two. I mainly got it for my GE 201SA, but I'll probably keep the clear one in case I get another HID and need it. I do like clear ones too.

I think you meant to say you bought the blue Defiant one at Home Depot? Defiant is Home Depot's in house brand. Lowe's in house brand is Utilitech.

It was. I used to use the Tork one on my GE NEMA, but now I use a larger one that Mike sent me, because it seems easier to put on and take off than the Tork was.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

They're all easy to put on and take off. They just twist in. . . .

Well the Tork one was definitely harder to take off for me. It always got stuck and ended up twisting the photocell socket. I don't have that problem with the other one, so there was definitely a difference in clearance or the gasket or something.
