How to Choose: Replacing Your Post Top Globe

The Lindy™ family of post top components from LexaLite® offer state-of-the-art prismatic design for street and area lighting applications. Perfect for new construction or replacement projects in downtown, campus, park or residential areas, it features unmatched performance. A changeover to The Lindy will save you money and improve the appearance of your street lighting.

Which size globe do I need?

To determine which Lindy post top globe you’ll need, just answer the questions below.

Choose the globe according to the height of the pole. Here’s a few guidelines:

What neck opening diameter does the pole use?

The neck of the globe (bottom opening) fits into the fitter (or capitol) of the pole. This fitter houses the electronics and lamp. Measure the diameter of this opening to determine the maximum size globe neck opening.

  • The Little Lindy Model 408 neck opening is 8″.
  • The Lindy Models 424 and 425 are available in both 8″ and 9″ openings.

Do you need both the top and bottom, or do you need just the bottom?

The Little Lindy Model 408 is a two piece unit comprised of a prismatic top (or roof), and prismatic bottom (refractor). These are joined together by using the plastic clips provided with the top, or by the use of a clamp band. You can purchase our stainless steel clamp band, or, use a decorative clamp band that will fit the 14.11″ diameter.

If you order the Little Lindy Model 408 bottom refractor only (so that you can use your own metal top) be sure that your top will fit properly on the Little Lindy refractor rim. Please refer to the Rim Detail drawing found on the back of the data sheet. You may need a clamp band to attached your own metal top. You can purchase our stainless steel clamp band, or, use a decorative clamp band that will fit the 14.11″ diameter.

The Lindy Model 424 is a two piece unit comprised of a prismatic top (or roof), and prismatic bottom (refractor). These are joined together by using a clamp band. You can purchase our stainless steel clamp band, or, use a decorative clamp band that will fit the 15.9″ diameter.

The Lindy Model 425 is a bottom refractor only, with a different rim than the Model 424. It is designed to mate with your own top. If you order the Model 425, be sure that your top will fit properly on the refractor rim. Please refer to the Rim Detail drawing found on the back of the data sheet.

Your purchased top and the Lindy Model 425 refractor bottom are joined together by using a clamp band. You can purchase our stainless steel clamp band, or, use a decorative clamp band that will fit the 15.5″ diameter.
