    I know this is not ideal, both aesthetically or practically but does anyone have any ideas the best way to install 20mm round plastic conduit from above to one of the following types of exterior wall lights?




    My thoughts are ideally there needs to be a jb behind the light that it is fastened to, as there is no way without comprising water tightness and having the light not fit flat to the wall of having a cable entering from above.


    Any ideas/experience greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

    You would tend to fit a box round or sguare alongside or above the light and terminate the pipe into that, then flex into the side or top of it it from the box.
    Another option is use a box bigger than the light base and fit the light to the front
