Hi there.

I have a light post on my front yard, similar to the one shown in the picture. The snow ejected by the snow blower sometimes inadvertently hits it and takes off the glass pane. Is there any guard or shield to prevent the pane from coming off?

The snow blowing is contracted out to a company, so I cannot expect them to be always careful.

Thanks a lot.

Paul

Generally, there are retainer clips in this style of fixture.

I've used the spring loaded hangers found on can light trim rings, reconfigured for the purpose. Because I had them, and I'm cheap.

Remove the glass pane, put a good bead of clear silicone all around the edges that it rests on inside, and mush the pane into it.

Or you might want to replace that one pane with a matching piece of Lexan or acrylic, then caulk it in there.
Because flying ice or a stone can bust the glass.
