CAM-LOCK Installation

There’s no need for expensive repair work as Retro R8’s Universal Adaptor doesn’t rely on intact niche mounting hooks or screws for successful installation.  The patented CAM-LOCKS grip the niche wall as they’re fitted, pulling the Retro R8 light and existing niche together for a secure, even fit.

Standard Installation

The Retro R8 also supports standard installation methods with its variable hook and screw system. The Hook Tab adjusts without the need for extra spacers or washers to suit all major brand niche tabs.



No More Pulling Cables During Installation or Servicing

Fast And Reliable Installation
With Retro R8's Quick Connect Plug

Retro-fitting a Pool light should take minutes, not hours. With the Retro Series R8 you can say goodbye to pulling cables through conduit forever! The Retro R8 makes retro-fit installation a quick & simple process. Its UL Listed Quick Connect Plug system attaches directly to the existing cable in the niche, saving time, money and allowing for light replacement when cables cannot be removed.

Extra Safe Low Voltage 12VAC

The UL Listed Quick Connect Plug power offers safe low voltage connection for all pool users as well as for future servicing. Simply install a transformer for conversion.
