Does the Liberty Light work straight out of the box?

Usually your Liberty Light will work directly out of the box. The steps below should be followed before you mount your solar light.

  1. Make sure the ON/OFF switch is in the OFF position. If you have the toggle ON/OFF switch model the OFF position will be when the switch is fully depressed in and the photocell will not activate. If you have the push button ON/OFF switch model you will press up (white dot on switch) for the OFF position and the photocell will not activate.

  2. Install the Liberty Light in unobstructed direct sunlight for 48 hours. This will insure that the battery gets the full first initial charge.

  3. After the initial charge period, turn the ON/OFF switch to ON. The switch should be left on, and the solar flag pole light will now operate properly.
