You have completed the deck, porch or patio project. How about adding some Solar Deck Lights to illuminate your space at night.
There are lots of great choices on the market to fit any budget. The best part of this project, it is so easy to install in a matter of minutes. I installed 14 of the 16 lights in less than 15 minutes.

These solar lights can be installed on fences, stairs, a pathway, railings, etc. The solar lights are weatherproof LED and Solar Powered Outdoor Lights with a warm white hue.
Installing Solar Deck Lights
Step 1 remove the solar deck lights from the box
You will want to make sure that all of the pieces are included before starting the project. Also, you should determine how many of the solar lights you will need. There are 16 in the package. For this project, I used only 14 of the lights with two of them as spares.
Step 3 clean your railings and steps
It is important to clean any dirt, dust and cobwebs, etc. from the railings and the steps before installing the solar lights. It will help for the installation to hold. It comes with both screws and adhesive strips.
Step 3 Installation
For the rails, I used the adhesive strips provided. You will need to remove the top paper and press the adhesive to the solar light. Next, you will remove the top piece of protective paper.
Next, pull the clear tab at the top for the battery to activate. The batteries are rechargeable and will need to charge for 8-12 hours in direct sunlight prior to use.
You need to firmly press it in place to make sure the adhesive adheres to the railing.
You can place the solar lights along the railing according to your preference.
The solar lights screw easily into the stair trend by using the enclosed screws. I placed one on each of the steps to the left side. I did not place them on the right side. Because these solar light are raised, I did not want them to be a tripping hazard. Therefore, they were not installed on the main stair path.
Step 4 Time To Admire the Finish Look
How easy was this project? Done in less than 15 minutes!
I told you it was going to be an easy project. Such an inexpensive way to add some outdoor task lighting.
Now it may not be all pretty on the rail. To me it looks fine. If you don’t like the color, you can always paint them white ahead of time to match the railing.
Look how amazing it looks lit up at night.

We love how this project turned out. The new lights ties in nicely with our other landscaping solar lights.
