Different brands with cross arms or "ladder rests" will work as replacements. Posts tend to come with gold plastic balls on the end of the cross arm, so use the black ones from the original
post or paint the gold ones to black. The post can be, but does not have to be, embedded in concrete. The top of the pole should be 60" from the ground so either an 80" or 84" pole will

A. To replace the bulbs in the BRASS light fixtures:
1. Buy "candelabra" style (tiny base) incandescent, florescent or LED bulbs suitable for outdoors. Halogen bulbs have been known to "blow" once installed in the fixture. Do not use bulbs that exceed 25 watts. This will save electricity and keep the heat down within the enclosed glass so that your circuit doesn?t overheat and trip. The total wattage for all three bulbs should not exceed 75. The compact fluorescent bulb equivalent is 7 watts.
2. Turn off the power at the circuit box or trip the GFI breaker on an outlet inside the house in line with the fixture.
3. Read #4 and then come back to this one. Climb on a tall step stool or ladder and unscrew the 3 little screw tops from the 3 posts that pass from the lamp through the lid itself. They slip out of your fingers and are so small they get lost in the grass/snow/leaves. Have a designated pocket or zip lock or something to hold them in.
4. Leave all the other little screw tops alone. Taking them out will drop all the glass out of the fixture. Hope you read this one before actually doing #3 above!
5. Unscrew the bad bulbs, replace with good ones. Replace lid and tiny screw tops. Turn on light and, if it is dark out, notice if the bulbs are on.
It is easy if all goes smoothly, but hard if the screw tops fall out of your hand and get lost on the ground or if you buy the wrong bulbs, and even a bit hard to line up the lid holes with the 3 posts to put the lid back on.
B. To replace the bulb in the BLACK fixtures:
Remove the screws on top of the fixture, lift the lid, replace the bulbs, put the lid back on and put the screws back in! To save electricity, use 40W equivalent LED bulbs. Replace both the house and the post lamp with the same bulb so that the light output and color are the same.
Click here for eHow information on what GFI means: The Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) protects the user from a shorted receptacle because of a moisture event. If the receptacle sees an over-current condition caused by water, for example, the GFI activates ("pops out"), and the circuit on which the receptacle is located, shuts off. In addition to the garage circuit, to which most if not all lamp posts are wired, they can also be installed in laundry rooms or bath/laundry combinations. They are also common in kitchens and bathrooms. Every couple of months, it's a good idea to test your GFI receptacle by simply pushing the lower of the two buttons. The upper of the two buttons should pop "out". Restore the circuit by pushing the upper button back in. If it stays in, the receptacle should be OK. If the upper button will not stay in, do not use the receptacle and have it replaced.
2. If the GFI has not popped and the light is still not turning on, try these remedies:
