The only negative point about the Aries Solar Post Cap is the measurement listed on the product ordering page. My AZEK post sleeves are 4 5/16 outside. I ordered the 4 3/8 size which was closest, because with 1/16 of play, it would let post sleeves expand and contract yet the light would still fit without too much slop. But the actual inside measurement was really 4 7/16, so I have too much play. I made some thin shims on the inside all the way around and used silicon to keep them in place. They should double check actual measurements on the product pages. Other than that, these lights are wonderful! They are heavy duty white painted aluminum, very solidly built and use Lithium batteries instead of NiCad so they should last much longer. You literally take them out of the box, push the on/off switch and mount them to the post. I put them at the top of two sets of stairs, and the light put out by the four tiny LEDs is incredible, and points down to the deck and stairs. They look very elegant (which they should for 67 bucks, plus , in my case, they look almost like they were made for the AZEK rails.
