    I agree with sandjunkie, but an apology is an apology and that is going in the right direction. If you guys are really able to put together a group buy on here with one of your distributors, I think it would go even further.

    I apologize if you guys took it the wrong way. Just trying to inform everyone before they get to involved or order to much of lights they cant sell.

    If people are interested in a group buy please post on here with the sizes you are interested so i can get an idea and send it over to one of our dealers i use for group buys. Thanks guys

    Well if they built something like that, then they are hypocrites, because they are copyings someones style and design..

    But then Dan says he will put in a word to try and have that made...

    Why not buy the one you posted a link to...

    Also if Dan would tell us if they manufacture the housing yourself, because I think the housings come from overseas.. and they assemble everything here...

    Also everyone saying that Chinese crap is garbage, maybe some but look at your iPhone's and LCD the and nearly all your appliances are made there..I wish those plants would come back, but its not gonna happen...

    I have never seen any big company troll boards and try to threaten the buyers..go after the companies manufacturing the stuff...you see apple posting on forums and threating people buying Samsung products...if your that big why worry bout what's going on in forums...

    As Consumers what Legal problems would be encountered?
    Is rigid the sole proprietor of said patent(s) or are you only buying rights to another entities patent(s)?

    Quick search netted below:

    Apparently, this patent has a "wide" IP for application, it seems the filling company/assignees were:

    Holder; Ronald G. (Laguna Niguel, CA), Rhoads; Greg (Irvine, CA)
    Assignee: Illumination Management Solutions Inc. (Irvine, CA)
