Commercial style post top fixtures being used residentially « on: Today at 08:43:10 AM » Author: Cole D.
In my area I’ve noticed several houses where commercial grade post top fixtures were being used in people’s yards.

There are a few GE Town and Country style fixtures at some houses… I’ve seen black ones and white ones, both HPS and MV.

There are a few houses in my neighborhood that have the GE space ship looking ones, I believe they’re all MV. One seems to have disappeared, and one sadly got the glass broken after hurricane Irma and got replaced with either an LED or CFL bucket light on a post top adapter.

There’s one house on the back way to the next town, and it has two GE Town and Country LED post tops on either side of the gate. There used to be a lot of wooden poles going down the driveway… it’s a very long driveway… and those had MH yardblasters on them.

That house sold a few months ago and I recently noticed all of those yardblasters got replaced with more GE post tops matching the ones at the gate! I was really surprised they would do that.

It must’ve cost a fortune? And where would the buy them? You can’t just order them at the home center or hardware store. lol

One of my neighbors a few doors down also has a black post top HPS fixture in their back yard by the lake… I haven’t seen it on in years though. Not sure how old it is, but it was likely installed by the previous owner or two. They used to also have an ITT cobra fixture somewhere in the yard… I remember it being put out for trash when I was a kid… I saw it riding my bike one day, of course my dad said “you are NOT taking that home.” 😂
