NTP66 those lights are life changing.
I was just gonna post that. Put them in the unfinished portion of my basement and they are great! I was planning on switching my keyless lights to long, led shop lights but I don’t need that now. Thanks NTP66
Mine came yesterday. Can't wait to try them out. I'm thinking two in the utility room of my basement and two in the garage. I have four light bulbs in the garage but thinking I don't need all four of them out there. :lol:
I tried that. Theyre too great so I just bought more instead.

So my drawer box is approx 17” wide and the housing is approx 18.5”. I Need .5” play on each side for drawer hardware. Any suggestions on how to accommodate for the other .25” should I make some spacers on the table saw?

I told my father in law about NTPs lights and he went and doubled down and ordered the 12000 lumens ones for 32 bucks each. :lol:

Oh ****, I forgot about my attic lights, so I need a few more. All of these fixtures are 60w max, so I can’t go for that 12k lumen model. That seems like fun until you accidentally look into the light and are blind for the next 12 weeks.

What's the minimum amount of space needed around the fixture to screw it in? The fixture in my garage is next to a bracket for the garage door, and I'm not sure if I can screw it in. I couldn't find anything in the Amazon QA about this.

You need 7” from the center of the fixture to the furthest end of the wing on these LEDs for them to clear.

I planed down some scrap 2x4 and worked like a charm. Thanks for the suggestions.

Pro tip, my dudes. DO NOT look directly into those garage lights the first time you turn it on. Jesus.

I put one in our breezeway and will be seeing spots until tomorrow.

You must have missed this:
Just don't stare into those LED lights, unless you want to see what heaven supposedly looks like.

I had the same problem and just left it partially folded. My box came with socket extenders too so those helped

Well, it's been closed in so it's not a proper breezeway anymore. Closer to a mud room, but that's not right either as the floor is finished in cement. Foyer isn't right either.

Either way it's lit af right now.
