    I am an electrician and do not like direct burial cable.
    Is there a way of knowing which fixtures are compatable with an outdoor type "Bell" Box?
    Some fixtures look like the wires come out the bottom and not through the mounting screw.
    Also, what size are your mounting screws? Are they compatable with a standard 1/2" knockout?

    Hey Trevor,

    For the majority of our fixtures, the threading on the mounting stems/arms is 1/2" NPSM. Where the lead wires exit depends on the type of fixture; certain fixtures are designed with lead wire exits specifically for a certain application. So, as long as the threading matched and the box could support the fixture (while still being powered via a low-voltage current), it could certainly be adapted for your application. Many users have in fact mounted their lights in this type of or similar fashion.
