This fixture has been designed specifically for downlighting. The knuckle has been sealed with silicone so water cannot enter the fixture even when it is mounted upside down. The lens has a small hole in the center so any condensation can escape when the fixture is mounted upside down. It comes with an extra-long glare guard for downlighting and a solid brass tree mount all included. 25' lead wire so you do not need to make a visible splice up on the tree.

FedEx Ground Map


We offer residential delivery on Saturdays to most locations at no additional cost. Most residential deliveries scheduled to arrive on a Monday will now arrive 2 days earlier on Saturday! (For example: Order before 5pm on a Friday and, if you live in a location that would typically receive ground orders in 1 day, you would receive your order on Saturday.)

***To make sure Saturday delivery is available to your ZIP Code contact FedEx by calling 800-GoFedEx before placing your order.


Our multiple shipping facilities eliminate the need to pay extra for express shipping under most circumstances. However, FedEx Overnight® and 2Day® shipping is still available and can be selected at checkout for customers needing their items sooner than standard FedEx Ground can deliver (see map above for details). All Overnight® or 2Day® orders must be received before 5pm EST regardless of shipping destination.


We require $1,000 USD order minimum (before shipping charges) on first time orders and a $500 USD order minimum (before shipping charges) on all future orders with an established account. The recipient of an international shipment is responsible for any import taxes, duties, and any additional fees levied by the destination country. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict these costs. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. Contact your local customs office for further information. When custom clearance procedures are required it can cause further delays in shipment. Due to high shipping costs/duties, international customers are responsible for shipping on warrantied replacements, returns, and/or exchanges.


If there is a discrepancy with your order that is deemed to be caused by VOLT® (e.g., wrong item or quantity, or defective), VOLT® will pay for any shipping costs associated with order resolution. Shipping costs associated with the exchange of items accurately delivered by VOLT® are the sole responsibility of the customer. For details on returns and exchanges, please see our Returns Policy Page.


Many of our products are made of heavy-duty materials and as a result weigh a lot. Weight is the primary factor in estimating shipping charges calculated by FedEx, and with larger orders, weight can total hundreds of pounds. To help offset some of this cost, we pass on our high-volume FedEx discount to you.

Disappointing lack of quality. Thumbs down! February 6, 2015
Reviewer: Rob from Chicago IL  
Superficially the Top Dog Downlight appears well crafted. I purchased mine this summer 2014 to illuminate a fountain & steps. However, it failed, bulb base apparently shorting out on Jan 31, 2015, lasting NOT EVEN A YEAR! Yes tried several bulbs that were lighting in other fixtures. Still didnt work. Now going to have to wait for snow to melt to replace. WHAT A PAIN IN THE @$$! I wont be purchasing another.

Reviewer: Bryan from Kentucky  
I have purchased approximately 25 of the top dogs in the last 3 months.  All but one have been exactly what I hoped for.  I had a problem with a screw.  I use these exclusively in gables and down lighting from trees.  My criticism is the socket assembly has to be bent to allow the lamp to insert.  It would be nice if VOLT would begin to manufacture a tree mount that would allow the use of hangar b

Top Dog w/ LED ...Our most used fixture October 31, 2013
Reviewer: KJ from Texas Hill Coun  
We love to use this down light and LED lamps make them even better...||we throw away the mount plate that comes in the box and use a tree mount that allows us to install two fixtures in one mount and use hanger bolts replacing screws much better long term as tree grows...||The adjustment set screws are easily lost and sometimes strip can attribute to human error but still frustrating when on a l
