No, but they're tempting.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

I was taking a closer look at this photo and realized there are more fixtures here than i thought. (there are 4 fixtures in the photo)

The one by the tree looks like it's missing part of its refractor, there might be another one buried in the leaves (if it's like the two on the cross), or maybe the one by the tree is its partner.

Top is a Electripak.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

They're up for grabs, so why not get them?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

The only issue is that they're fenced in.

I was looking at Google maps and noticed that these lights used to be mounted on an archway over a steel gate that would stop people from going in, however, the gates were removed (forcefully), destroying the archway and the posts these lights were mounted to. And this was pretty recent too (happening back in mid to late 2019).

they're not even worth it. They're just junky yardblasters. If they were cobraheads, or at least real NEMAs maybe, but yardblasters aren't worth jumping a fence and getting caught. At least not IMO.

Yard blasters by AEL I'll pick up just for the P/C socket...they will also fit the older Series 13, 25, 113 cobra-heads, as well as others.
I agree, these are not worth bothering with for obvious reasons.

A man has two lives to live, and the second one begins when he realizes he only has one.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

Nice lights but unless there is a large opening in the fence, they're not really worth the time or the risk to take.

There is one that's wide enough for me to slip through with ease, and i don't think the area is super high risk. I think i may go for the loose ones (the one in the bush and the one with the broken slipfitter).

If the yard blasters really mean that much to you then go for it. Odds of getting caught are low if you are not visible from the road and if power has been cut to the building (no cameras).

Sometimes i see some of these cheaper fixtures as a blank slate for modding. And if i had more (similar or better) fixtures at my disposal, then i would pass these up no doubt.

Look for cameras, look for pedestrian and vehicle traffic, finally look for the closest neighbor. Take a small socket-wrench tool kit with you at night, and "SAVE" every single one of them!

Someone kicked the refractor off of one of the lights.

Also, a lot of vandalism has happened here since i last checked, the opening in the fence is a lot wider than it used to be.

if that's the case then I say go in and grab as many of these things as you can. If it's being vandalized whoever owns the property clearly doesn't care about it and you might as well save these before they too are destroyed.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

There was also a lamp on the ground (still intact) that i wanted to grab but didn't because it was daytime and there were people around.
