Topper November 28, 2016
Reviewer: Jonathan Len from Simi Valley, CA United States  
The topper piece is too big for the pipe therefore i need to cut it down or do something which i paid them to do it... Beware dont by unless u like plastic.. Your can easyly make this out of would or anything else for cheap... Like i said the reason why i bought them is because i didnt want to do any work to them thats why i paid the money for them... Also the globes from the other company they hes represent beware if it says its instock it may not be cause i got mine a week and a half after i order it but they have good prices so just beware....
----  HOLIDAYCORO RESPONSE ----
We tried our best - this order was shipped 19 minutes after it was placed (7:19am) and delivered within 3 days of being placed.  The #1 confusion with this product is one thing - the incorrect pipe ID.  This is designed for thin wall pipe, thick wall PVC.  We manufacture this product on computer controlled CNC machines and confirmed that the dimensions were completely correct.  For other customers, we recommend looking in the drainage / sprinkler section of the hardware store for the correct item.  We also recommend taking the part with you to confirm proper fit prior to purchase o the pipe.

Great Product May 23, 2016
Reviewer: Brandon Robbins from Simi Valley, CA United States  
These are great. I have ordered 10 of these to be added to my show next year.
They showed up packed very well. The bases already had the 1/2" pipe inserted. all i had to do was mount the LED's and connect the wires.

Made life easier December 28, 2014
Reviewer: Dean Brooks from Batavia, NY United States  
Bought 8 of these.  Didn't buy the exact model of pipe that was in the docs / description so I had to modify but no worries.  Great new element for my display.

Great but tight fit! November 20, 2012
Reviewer: Bryan Hagan Jr from Odenton, MD United States  
They Candy Cane post topper is a great item and looks excellent when complete.

My only complaint is the hammering of the 1/2" pipe in to the center of the post topper.  It is a very very tight fit.  I know it is meant to be so it doesn't slip but even if it were a fraction of an inch bigger would help.  I cracked 2 of them hammering that piece in, it was fixable with hot glue but was also a bit frustrating.  

Other than that, great stuff!
