I purchased 2 sets of Hampton Bay solar landscaping lights for a gift. The stakes that go in the ground were plastic and after being in the ground a month or so the starting breaking off and as of now 6 months after purchase they have all broken off.

I contacted Hampton Bay and they said too bad Home Depot requested that the stakes be plastic and would do nothing about them.

I am very disappointed since I thought Hampton Bay was a top of the line company.

I will never buy Hampton Bay again since they did not even offer any help.

    I had the same experience with the plastic stakes... they all broke off and now I am searching for replacement stakes. Unfortunately, I cannot find anyone that sells them anywhere. Very poor product planning.

    My 10 lights with 2 batteries and 1 LED each stay lit until the next morning, but the plastic stakes have started breaking. I called several weeks ago and was told that the replacements would take several weeks as they were out of them. However, it has been over 2 months and nothing has arrived, so I am returning them to Home Depot. This is the very last day to do so (90 day return policy).

    The whole light and stake are plastic that is very brittle and breaks easily.

    Don't buy this product.

    I recently spent over $150 on a Hampton Bay light set... I have had them for less than 3 months and the stakes are broken. I have no use for lights that won't stand upright! Something should be done!
