No offense to Mike S., my boy over at Kichler....but...those things are pricey and I have heard they do not hold up very well....

Our hubs include an Inline Fuse for protection, brass mechanical lugs, and pre greased threaded black caps to go over the lugs. As well as a good sized 4" square valve box.

We are the ORIGIONAL HUB splice company.....

i was researching you're stuff too my friend, could I get a price list from you? We've got the drawing done up and I think there is about 125 lights of various sorts, mostly ups and downs, there are some paths but I'm thinking the homeowner is going to have the path lights built by a contractor friend of mine that is building a japanese tea house, and i'll just wire them up. I'm very interested in using top-grade products for this so maybe I'll send some business you're way... I really like you're site by the way.

ps yall need a mac os version of your software, I'm going to have to find a windows computer to borrow to try it out.

yeah we are redevloping it so that it will be web based. This way people with Mac and Vista OS will be able to utilize the software. It ill also allow us to update more regularly. The current version is about 5 years old now.

You guys kill me with your shameless plugs. I guess I would do the same if I were a manu/dist. Rock on!

Have you tried paralles or a windows emulator on your mac... we are converting to mac and just got a mac book to become familiar first.

Anyways... yeah the kichler junction is pricey. If you decide to go unique you can order your fixtures in 6 packs which is 5 of the same fixtures plus a "free" hub

Or you can do like alot of guys on here do and make your own hubs. Small irrigation valve boxes work well for us. We simply splice the wires up (solder or buchanan crimp) and insert them into grease tubes and then color code em and stuff em in the box. Plenty of room inside.

i've done that in the past but theirs looked prettier, HA! the windows emulators work well, actually w/ the new macs you can just install windows and via a restart you have a windows computer, but once you get used to the mac os you don't really want to have to use windows.
