How to Install Cornhole Lights (Basic)

 

 

Installing Standard Cornhole Lights

Installing your standard set of cornhole lights is usually as slick and easy as the game itself. In fact, many of them don’t come with instructions – their installation is just completely straightforward.

Just in case, though, here’s a basic guide for installing your basic set of standard cornhole lights.

First – and, really, this is the closest it’ll get to challenging – you’ll want to make sure that the lights are properly lined up with the hole. Since they’re usually perfectly round, you’ll want to ensure that the lights aren’t slightly too much to either side of the hole – this could seriously put off the aim of the players, especially if you’re night-gaming.

Once it’s lined up, though (and seriously, make sure it is, and that you’re holding it properly in place), you can start with the screws. Some folks like to drill the holes before applying the screws; but depending on the material your board is made of, you might also be able to find a screwdriver strong enough to just drive the screws right through the wood. Don’t overdo it, though – forcing them too hard could create warped or misshapen holes which will make it hell to keep the lights steady.

Lastly, you’ll need to find a place for the battery pack. These are generally pretty unobtrusive, but still, you’ll want to ensure that they’re not anywhere that they might get damaged, or where the cord is in the way of the hole. Some models come with clips that can be applied to the battery cord, allowing you to screw it in place. Otherwise, you might consider securing it in place some other way.

All in all, installing the average pair of cornhole lights most likely won’t take more than two minutes of your time if you know what you’re doing. And that’s just as well – a good game of nighttimecornhole waits for nobody.
