I bought this product knowing that I was having my house painted. Weather halted the project a bit but long enough that I couldn't return this light. I opened the box in order to install. It looked like someone used something to open the battery housing. The actual battery housing was missing a spring for the negative end of one of the 4 C batteries. There were broken plastic pieces located where the light was. After closer inspection it just seemed that they sent me a used/broken light. Very disappointed in this product.
