Need to replace external floodlight … (first of many to have bulb failures I expect) will change to LED as they fail.

My current floods are physically connected to flexible conduit with 20mm Electroflex Glands .. the male thread screws straight into the wiring box on the back of the lights (nice & neat), electrical connection then being inside the flood.

The flexible conduit is attached to a solid conduit as it goes through the wall of the building.
I don’t wish to remove existing conduit or wiring.

Most LED floods seem to be with pre-wired 60cm flex ….

In which case I would need a way to terminate that flex in a box or similar - with a gland for the flex, and screwing existing flexy conduit into the box.
Conduit is in black, anybody know of a neat box or similar I can put on the end .. needs to be IP65
Best I know of is https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Products/WK206B.html

This is what is used on exisitng wiring:

It’s outside on an external wall, subject to rain.
Lights are IP66. Makes sense to match the connection.

IP53 would be enough but fittings not usually rated for that.
