How to install the SPIKE & SPIKE 22

The SPIKE (and SPIKE 22) is an accessory that easily allows you to add recessed lights into mulch, sod, rocks, and more. For example, instead of drilling into your pathway, you can line your path like this: 


The SPIKE is compatible with in-lite’s larger (60mm or 2 3/8”) recessed fixtures. 

The SPIKE 22 is compatible with in-lite’s smaller (22mm or 7/8”) recessed fixtures. 

Follow these super easy steps to installing your fixtures with SPIKE or SPIKE 22.

Simply feed the fixture lead through the SPIKE, then pull the lead all the way through until the fixture is resting in the top of the SPIKE. 

Push the fixture all the way down until it is flush with the top of the SPIKE. 

Push the SPIKE into the ground where you want to place the fixture and organize the mulch, grass, rocks, or gravel around it. 


Next, you just plug the fixture into the Easy-Lock connector and bury the Easy-Lock, the lead, and the main line cable. Everything is direct burial so there's no need for conduit - just bury it directly under your mulch or sod!


And that’s it! Sit back and enjoy the new addition to your outdoor lighting.
