I am looking to install a light in a cabinet I just bought. It is 48 inches wide, 12 inches deep, and 46 inches high. It will have two glass shelves and be used to hold curios. Should I plan on 2 lights or do you believe one light will provide enough lighting?

Answer:We have a 36"w x 52"h 12 deep 3 glass shelves and the light works fine. We had to rearrange and put the bigger stuff on the bottom. This is a good product. Well made, not cheep looking. You don't have to hide it.

Answer:I bought two of these fixtures for a china cabinet that has two doors on one side and a single door on the other. The double door side is about "42" wide. I put a single fixture on each side. The larger of the two sides is noticeably dimmer than the smaller side with the same single fixture. For the cabinet you're describing, I would buy the double light option. Since the fixture limits you to a 25 watt bulb, if you think it's too bright (which I doubt) you could always use two 15 watt bulbs.

Answer:I placed 1 light in each of the end pieces of a wall unit. The inside measures 22"w x 19"d x 34"h with 2 glass shelves. I find it to be sufficient to highlight what is inside the cabinet. I have my light placed at the back of the unit but it can be placed in the middle and this would probably shed the light more evenly.

Answer:I would recommend two lights, especially if it is a dark cabinet.

How long is the cord? What are the dimensions, particularly the height?
By Bruce Payne from Portland, OR on November 8, 2012
Answer:The cord is 6ft long and the unit hangs 2 inches down from the shelf above.

Answer:The cord that I received was 6 ft long with a plug on the end. The product is very well made and my customer loves it. I mounted it in a very expensive curio cabinet and it works just as she wants. Excellent product!!
By Michael from Somerset, NJ on November 11, 2012
Answer:The cord is 7 feet long and is white in color, My light is mounted to the top inside of a cabinet. The height when mounted is 2 3/4" and length is 7" long. The light bulb is aquarium style. It mounts by one bracket which is on the same side as the turn switch. I hope this information helps!

Is it possible to link 3 of these together and have only one plug into the wall socket? I have a hutch with 3 separate compartments.
These are what are in there now, but they are strung along the top underneath of the hutch with one plug in cord through the top and down the back of the hutch.

Each of these has its own power cord. They are not linkable together.

The fixtures that I am replacing in a lighted under the stair display cabinet wire directly into a 110 box. Is it OK to cut the plug off of the end of this fixture and wire it directly into the 110 box?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on March 21, 2013
It has an attached cord and plug. It does have the kind of plug end that you can remove and wire directly or shorten if necessary.

I want to attach this fixture on the bottom side of a wood shelf to illuminate objects sitting on the shelf below. Any problem with that application? Also, one of your customers on Q&A says the light will hang 2" below the shelf but your specs seem to say the distance would be 2 3/4". Which is correct? Also, are clear bulbs available, and is the bulb generally available at retail outlets such as home depot, lowes etc. I will be ordering 6 lights.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 16, 2013
No problems with your application. That's exactly what this product is designed for.
The height is 2.75in when mounted.
No, we do not have clear bulbs available for this product.
I cannot speak for other retailers. We have the replacement light bulbs available on our Accessories section.

This light is exactly like what is in my china cabinet now, but, no longer works. I was thinking about using another type of light that might make less heat such as a puck light but wonder if that works as well as this as this one does have the brass "shield" to make it seem a little more indirect. Any recommendations?
By Troy from Fort Worth, TX on May 27, 2015
Answer:I considered the same issues and found that my cabinet would probably not look right with a different kind of light such as a puck light. I attacked the problem from a different direction. I used the 7-inch Standard Cabinet Mount Picture Light, but I changed the incandescent light bulb for a tubular 25 watt LED with the standard base. It uses only 3 watts of power and stays so much cooler and lasts up to 20+ years. My cabinet looks great and the tendency for incandescent lights to fade the color of the objects exposed to them is gone.
