    I don't do lighting but a customer asked me to replace several of his lights. They are beacon style lights mounted along the driveway and are the 120 volt type. Is there anything that I should know before attempting to replace these lights with new 120 volt lights? I figure that I would pull these out and hook the new ones in just the same away as they come up.

    Thanks in advance of any help.

    :dizzy: ever hear of an electrician ? perhaps being licensed ? If you cant replace a simple line voltage fixture (or arnt licensed to) you shouldnt be touching electricity in the first place

    Sub it out to a licensed electrician. This may save you your business. The really good thing about this is that you can make 15% mark up and don't have to do any labor.

    Help your client a lot... suggest he replace with a professionally designed and installed low voltage lighting system. Then refer him to your favorite electrician to remove the crap he has.
