The purchasing experience
On the 21st of September 2023 I made the plunge and spent £85 (£60 for the light + £24.99 on postage) on my traffic light.
This came after several days of deliberation and searching for one I could afford after the one I originally wanted fell through.
I ultimatly ended up with a 1990's Peek UK traffic light.
My discoveries and solutions
- The hoods that came with the traffic light didn't come with any mounting kit
- The proximity sensor ontop of the light had it's wires snipped
- There is enough space internally for the sequencer + related equipmment
- There is no cover covering the screwholes on the back or protecting the latches
- Only the latches on one side open properly
- There is no screholes on the back to mount to a base / wall
- I have temporarily used some old random screws to secure the hoods. (I eventually want to 3D print some clips)
- I'm gonna leave this on, but I might be able to do something with it
- I'm going to buy or 3D print a new case to encase all the screws / Latches
- I'm going to buy one of those pole speaker stands and rest the Traffic light on one of those (there is a deep enough hole in the bottom)
