Thanks, there’s a hold drilled through with a nut on a fitting.

Great idea. How is the top of lid secured on pipe??

Very cool idea. I wonder if you’d get better light out of them by putting a highly reflective piece of curved steel inside the jar on the side closest to the house. Might have to try this on my back door.

I haven’t really had a problem with heat, depends on the type of bulb you use too. Our dining room chandelier is made with a bunch of jar lights and I’ve had it up for about 2 years now. You could just drill little holes in the top of the jar lid though if you wanted to.
