The Arbor #9 mounted to stucco walls and wired for a light fixture. For mounting such fixtures, Prowell ships the arbor with concealed wiring drawn up from the bottom of the extension posts and out the bottom of the keystone, leaving plenty of wiring for the necessary connections on both ends. For such applications, add $150.

On the right, our happy customers.

Our Wood Arbor #9A, shown below at 3" thick x 3-1/2" width, without the center keystone, nor the mounting caps. Here the arbor ties in directly to the posts, columns, or wall-top with embedded threaded rod.

When mounting flush to the Gate posts, the bottom end-cuts arrive with a 1/8" round-over radius. The site posts must be cut to a clean 90-degree, and the top end-cuts also be radiused to 1/8" round-over. Why? Because the two assemblies may, or may not, expand and contract at varying degrees and the 1/8" eased edges allows some forgiveness.
