1. Run 18-2 gauge stranded outdoor wire (available from

FortressAccents post cap base to post. FortressAccents
post cap installation will vary depending on style of post.
Remove light plugs from FortressAccents post cap base.
2. Place each LED module into an indention in the
FortressAccents post cap base with the LED’s facing
down. Secure the LED module with provided screws. You
may eliminate the light emitted from any side of the
FortressAccents post cap by clipping the wire of the unneeded LED module and wrapping the ends of wire with
electrical tape.
3. Strip the wire insulation back ½” from the field wiring.
Connect wires with provided waterproof wire nuts. Wire
connections can also be made below the deck surface.

same side of 18-2 gauge wire with the same polarity (i.e.
positive) marked on the LED Cap Light Kit.
4. Before installing the post cap, make the connections
on all of the LED cap modules you plan to use. Connect
the field wiring to the transformer and turn on the lights
