Important Information to Read Before Installation of The CopperSmith Lanterns
>> For Wall Mount gas lanterns, the gas line will come directly out of the bottom at a 90-degree angle straight into the wall.
>> Pier Mount and Post Fitter lanterns will have a valve that comes straight from the bottom of the lantern into the column or post.
>> Classic Yoke mount lanterns will have a gas line that runs through the lantern, clipped to the inside of the yoke, and up through the down rod.
>> The gas line does not come out of the mount or back-plate. Please use 1/4″ flexible copper tubing. Always check before roughing in your gas line for installation as position changes with the type of mount.
>> For electric lights and gas lanterns with electronic igniters, the wiring will come out of the back-plate indicated on the drawing.
>> All electronic igniters operate on 120V.
>> All-electric lanterns will have a black tube that encases the wiring from the bottom of the lantern to the mount or back-plate. This does not include any lantern with a Turtle Light Adapter.
>> The mounting plate for all standard wall mount lanterns is 5”(H) x 6”(W) x 1“(D).
>> Flush Mount (direct to the wall without a backplate) lanterns have one hole in the back that will be used to mount.
