The cheap solar lights are :-
Greater than 2.
The opening of the Mason jar-
Smaller than Mason JarLarger's opening: The first style I tried was (
Customs clearance from July 4)
Just a touch larger than the opening.
Removing the blue top from the plastic pillar is easy enough (not shown here).
In addition to making things right, all I need to do is use dremmel and tin scissors to cut off the side of the light.
This special size lamp works very well as there is no need to re-route, cut off the cover or cover it.
I found these in Menards for $1. . .
I think I 'd better go back and have some more! Smaller -
Here, because the solar panel itself is too small, it slides through the jar "straps.
I had to cut a hole in the lid and stick the light to the lid. (
Another solution might be to copy the size of the cover from the plastic that is easier to cut (
Like the top of the Skippy jar)or wood.
I haven't tried this technology yet)
I cut the lid hole in two different ways :-
A square is marked on the lid and the opening is cut using Dremmel. -
I used a hole.
Make a round hole with a saw. The hole-
SAW technology is easier, but partially blocks solar panels.
Another problem with small size lamps is: the battery inside is 1/2 AA. . .
Looks like only half the length of AA.
I couldn't find a replacement so I made my own battery case with spare cardboard and used AA size. . .
