Drain Plug Light

Has anyone had any luck with the LED drain plugs? I would like to get some underwater light, but really dislike the idea of drilling into the hull. I know this would not be as bright as larger lights, but would it give it a nice glow? Our lake has Venetian night coming up where everyone goes out, rafts up, and has a party at night. Just wanted to know if the plug light would be worth the money. Thanks in advance

I just made my own drain plug LED light for this summer!! I think it came out really good, obviously not on the same level as the large thru hull lights, but for a drain plug it is pretty sick, check out this thread

Ill try and get some better pics this weekend

I have one, sold can't recall the company, it works Ok, I use it in addition to two thru hull lighs, every easy to install, and you can always take it out and return it if not to your liking.

Thanks. I might fab something up this winter with the brackets that hang down from the swim platform with better lights. If I were to go that route, where would be the best place to run the wires in while keeping the drill bits safely locked in the toolbox?

I went with the Drain Plug LED... just since it was 50-60 Bucks, Plus the Adapter from Lowe's... I was set in 30 min.
My Lake, is somewhat clear for about 1.5 to 2 foot deep... But I was totally impressed, I just went with White. It put a warm glow out about 2 Foot around the Teak, and once up running it gave it a nice glow.

Yes its no Light, like the Abyss Light but then again I didn't drop near that coin on it. All I wanted was a warm glow... just when tied up with friends late at night... or after the 4th Fireworks.

Sorry to say but I don't have a pic. Which is what I hate about fellow TT... its like post after post talk about products bur rarely do you get finished product pics.

I got a drain plug light of eBay for $32 with free shipping + an adapter from lowes. In about 10 min I had it wired up and was actually impressed with how well it worked. It had a solid glow about 2-3 ft past the swim platform. You could try it out and if you don't like it well it only cost you about $35 in all so no real hurt to the wallet. I only took one pic while we was out so sorry it's not the best.
