Nice design. Fastener heads were full of finish (paint?) and would not accept the designed tool driver to turn them. This condition makes them hard to install and hard to access to change lamps, so select a long lasting lamp because you definitely don't want to turn these fasteners in and out often. The fasteners for the glass and outboard flange also are difficult to access and difficult to start the threads in the fixture body because they need perfect alignment and are tough to view because of the design of the surrounding flange features. I would suggest getting another fastener, perhaps a SS bevel headed fastener without the paint in the head, or an Allen (hex) headed fastener instead. PLC should provide section cuts through the fixture to show the 1/4" flange on the back that requires a silicone gasket. Those gaskets were useless. They would not stay on prior to mounting them on the wall because the corners of the gasket do not match the corners on the flange. So, although they were designed to make the connection of the fixture to the wall substrate weatherproof, it is impossible to make them perform as intended because the gaskets will not stay on. PLC couldn't even mount them on the fixtures prior to shipping. All of them came dislodged from their intended mounting. A work around to break the aluminum welds of the flange off by bending them at two points per side will allow the flange to be removed without harm to the light body. Then the back side of the fixture can be mounted flat to the substrate with a good silicone sealant completely around the mounting area for a better seal is a possibility. I like the way they light.
