We use a unique milling cutter to bore the hole where the blade creates debris rather than dust, therefore making the process less harmful to the environment. The product is then fixed in to place using a two component all weather epoxy adhesive. For more details on how to install Solareye80 solar ground lights, check out our installation video above.
