    Is there something I have to switch to make this thing work?.....or perhaps is there a bulb hidden inside that may need replacing..its the one with the fibre optics running through.

    Hi Harry , got my Four Winds new last year, its fitted with a handle that will accept leds at top and bottom but was not fitted or wired.
    I got two 12v tri colour changing leds from O Learys of Beverly , I think about £3.99 each +£9 postage. Removed the handle and wired them myself with a switch inside the door :thumb:

    Why do you need the light if you have a porch light?

    Question Harry? why do you need a handle light when you have a porch light?

    The porch light allows you to see the door area, step etc.,
