I had ordered another Bargman Uro double light and decided to install it myself this time.
I had a little trouble stipping the end of the wire. ( really tough) but finally got it.. and got them in the wire clamps ( what ever they are called) then 'let there be light' LOL

See, see you can do it! Now, just think how much $$ you saved in labor costs... spend that money to go camping

If you screwed the light into wood, wood screws will work as designed... as long as you didn't strip out the wood by over tightening.

Hi Chisty,
I have only one thing to add regarding your installation, as regards the type of screws you used during your light installation. I would suggest that whatever fasteners you use, that they be stainless steel. If you use common ferrous wood screws, you'll find that they will leave rust streaks later on down the road as they start to rust and corrode. It's easy to check them with a magnet...if they are attracted to the magnet, they aren't stainless steel and will eventually rust.
