Installation Instructions
FortressAccents LED Glow Ring
with FortressAccents Post Caps
It is the responsibility of the installer to meet all code and safety requirements. The installer should determine
and implement the appropriate installation techniques for each situation. The Fortress Company or its
distributors shall not be held liable for improper or unsafe installations.
WARNING – Risk of Electric Shock. Install all luminaires 10 feet (3.05 m) or more from a pool, spa, or fountain.
Required Materials: Phillips Head Screw Driver, Wire Cutters, Wire Strippers, Eye Protection
1. Run 18-2 gauge stranded outdoor wire (available from
FortressAccents, please visit for
dealer locations) by routing in close proximity to the
luminaire or fitting, or next to a building structure such as a
house or deck. Wire should not be buried. Install
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. Protect edges of LED Glow Ring lens from scratching
during installation. Check the fit of LED Glow Ring into the
FortressAccents post cap base. Bottom edge of LED
Glow Ring lens will sit flat on the top edge of post cap
base. If there is a gap, adjust the screws that hold the
post cap base to the post to allow for proper fit of LED
Glow Ring lens.
3. Remove the LED Glow Ring lens from post cap base.
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.
Note: Polarity must be maintained. Always connect the
same side of 18-2 gauge wire with the same polarity (i.e.
positive) marked on the LED Glow Ring.
4. Before installing the post cap, recheck the fit of the
LED Glow Ring on to the post cap base. Connect the
field wiring to the transformer and turn on the lights to
verify that the wiring is correct. Align the post cap screw
bosses with the holes located at each corner of the LED
Glow Ring Lens. Install the post cap cover with the
fasteners provided with the LED Glow Ring.
