Step 3: Wire for Electricity
Drill three separate holes, all in alignment, to thread the wiring throughout the body of the hollow column: 1-starting at
the center of the fence post cap, drill a hole. 2-move to the center of the column top and repeat another hole. 3-turn the
column over and drill the last hole directly through the center of the column base. With the three holes completed, follow
the directions included in the lamp kit.
Tip: Depending on the height of your column, you may need a longer length of cord than the one provided in the kit. To see how much cord you may need, measure the height of the column. Add the distance between the lamp and plug. Then give yourself two extra feet. For a pair of lamps, double the overall length. If you do need to purchase more cord, be sure to pick up two quick-connecting flat-cord plugs as well.
