Would you like to better secure your cemetery light for stability or to prevent theft? Here is a helpful tip.
You will need a small to medium coffee can and enough cement mix to fill the can.
Prepare the ground stake by putting a slight bend in the bottom two inches of the stake. You may also drill a hole in the bottom of the stake and insert a bolt with a nut to hold it secure and prevent it from being pulled loose from the concrete.
Next you'll need the stake for the light without it being attached to the light itself. Having mixed the cement mix according to the manufacture's directions, place the bottom of the stake into the wet cement mix, being sure that it is at least three to four inches within the cement mix. You also want to be sure that the stake is supported straight up in the can and that it does not lean before the cement dries.
Follow the cement manufacturers direction for drying time or until you are sure the cement is dry. After the cement is hardened, attach the light to the top of the stake with the supplied nut.
Now all you have to do is prepare a hole in the ground at the cemetery deep enough to give you the desired height of the light above the surface of the ground.
NOTICE: You should obtain permission from your cemetery before disturbing any grounds. Some cemeteries have restrictions on erecting any fixtures or decorations.
