Installation Instructions

Evening Star® accent ligting installation instructions.

By design, the Evening Star® system allows for lighting fixtures to be placed anywhere in your project and not limited by geometric shapes. This system installs easily to new or pre-existing work, and circuit cable can be routed with several options. Fixtures are connected without wire nuts or splicing with a unique, reusable Power Tap Connector. Two independent circuits can be controlled for lighting effects, by using the optional 10/3 Dual Circuit Cable. Once installed, Lamp Modules can easily be changed by the homeowner or groundskeeper with a handy Removal Tool that is available as an accessory.

Core drilling of paving stone, brick, and natural stone can be obtained in several ways. Most Evening Star® Dealers offer core drilling services for a nominal fee. The contractor/installer can provide coring on the job site by using a professional hand held core drill, or with the Field Installation Kit, and basic 1/2" capacity electric drill. When drilling by hand, we recommend using the Adjustable Coring Template, which helps keep the bit centered.

When installing Evening Star® Deck or Dock Lighting, both surface and recessed mounting options are available. Decking boards are quickly drilled using Deck & Dock Installation Kit with a 1/2 capacity electric drill. Flush mounting is done in a single step, while recessed is a two step process. When drilling is complete, a DL250 Series Lamp Support Assembly is affixed with stainless steel screws, followed by the PL250 Series Lamp Module.
