It looks like that M-1000 is going to fall right off the pole! They should use a arm that can hold it's wight.

Strange! Allmost all laterns here which are fitted on a wooden pole are having at least four bolts... or three ( one going thru, fixed with a nut on the back side of the pole)

This is a GE slipfitter design that was first used on the mid-1960s M400A1 luminaires. It consists of a two bolt clamp whose bolts run through the housing of the luminare and a "cradle" on a track where the pipe rests. Generally, when properly tightened, this slipfitter works quite well.

@NiMo: I speak about the fixation of the bracket on the pole and not the fixture.

I see the long bolt on the top...it is indeed breaking the wood a bit on the opposite side....it's possible the metal mount is broken.....I have seen this happen on our truss arms, not too often though....

These glare shields appeared in the Back To The Future movie, at the start of the movie, and also appeared a 400w power bracket.

Are these still installed? This whole road has numerous M-1000 from looking at Google maps.

The mast arm is fine. I’ve seen this problem before with several M-1000 installations where the mast arm does not evenly distribute the weight to the wooden pole & it mashes into the pole causing the arm to lean. These arms aren’t really designed to hold the 50-70 pound fixtures & the pressure crushes into the soft wooden pole.

The M1000s are now gone. There's LED now.
