              Same problem as cited in the other review. The piece of plastic inside that the screw screws into simply broke off. No way to fix it. Had only been used half a dozen times before it broke. Junk.

              Comments about Removable Bi Color Pole Lights:

              Bought one and installed it on a 17' duck boat. In the garage, it worked well. First time out, it fell apart. Figured I must have inadvertantly hit it so I bought another. Same thing happened again. Took both apart and found the top is screwed into a base that is only approx. 3/32" thick x 3/8" wide plastic. Both lights broke at this spot. I am a design engineer of electrical products. This is a very poor design. It is not suitable for marine use. Quality in the US has really deteriorated.
