    Does anyone know if these two companies are related?



    Which came first? Who is mimicking whom? I see that Park City is now affiliated with F/X. I have been waiting years for Attraction to get proper electrical listings on their fixtures and they say they are working on it, but it seems to be taking a very long time. Now this Park City appears, but I cannot find any information about specifications on their website, not even the most basic technical data on the light sources. Not sure if they are listed products or not.

    Anyone else have more info?

    All speculation on my part: from looking over websites and the company principals, I don't see any connections other than similarity of products.
    The listed owner of Attraction Lights is a woman who shows on LinkedIn as the director of a charter high school in Burnside MN. The only other person showing with Attraction is Lyle Braund who I have had introductory emails with. Park City in Utah look to have 3 partners one of whom is on LinkedIn and apparently has several years in lighting fixture design. It could be that both companies have so much personal capital tied up in product development, advertising, etc. that they can't afford the investment in listings. And maybe that is where the affiliation comes in for Park City with FX Luminaire i.e. FX seeking or subsidizing the listings for them.

    Tim Ryan has some relationship with Attraction Lights so maybe he will pop in with more information than my speculation.

    No affiliation with Attraction. They just copied his designs. Lyle has been at it for about 8 years.

    Thanks for the link. They have some interesting lights.

    These are attractive fixtures. Wondering if in real life ife applications do they become a haven for spiders and get covered with webs and dead moths, etc.?
    Do they fill up with deciduous leaves or other debris?

    I have had some out there for about 5 years now that I service regularly. One place is next to the woods, heavy tree canopies and such. You will get some spider webs in them, but it hasn't been as big of a problem as I had thought they would be initially and they are easy to clean out. Leaves haven't been a big issue either. There seems to be enough metal scrolling on the sides that it seems to deflect most of them. All in all, I really like them. I have been using them instead of typical path lights whenever I can. These are set in concrete and don't get popped out of the ground like regular path lights do with frost heaving.
