Nite Guard Solar Lights Winter Storage Tips

By Katie Berning

Though not officially fall until September 23, the team at Nite Guard Solar thinks that it is always a good time to plan ahead when it comes to predator protection. During the winter season, your predator problems may quiet down, or even disappear altogether. And because of this, you may be considering uninstalling your Nite Guard Solar lights to store them while the snow is falling. Before you pull the lights from their posts, we would like to remind you of one of the many noteworthy design features of the Nite Guard Solar light.

Nite Guard Solar founder and inventor, Jim Meyer, designed Nite Guard Solar lights so that they are completely weatherproof. This means that these lights can withstand even the harshest of winter storms.

With this in mind, keep your lights installed through the winter season.

You may be wondering why the team at Nite Guard Solar recommends keeping your lights installed. If so, consider that this will enforce to all night predators that your property is "off limits" and a protected area yearround.  And secondly, and more importantly, Nite Guard Solar lights will have a longer life span if activated year round. And the best way to keep these lights activated is to leave them installed outside, so that the lights can continue to recharge their batteries using the sun.

If you prefer to cover the flashing red light when your predators are away for the winter season, take a piece of black electrical tape, and place it over the LED bulb. This way, your lights will still be operating, which will promote their longevity, but will no longer emit a flash.

However, we suggest that you consider an alternative use for your Nite Guard Solar lights as a home security system. The flashing red light not only resembles the eye of a potential threat when viewed by a predator animal, but to a human intruder, the light also resembles that of a security system.

Thus, after catching sight of the flashing red light, the intruder may think twice before stepping onto your property.
