AbstractA novel low voltage lighting system is provided herein, by the following novel combination of elements. The first element is a brick, the brick having a bore therethrough, the bore having an upper countersunk enlargement. The second element is a lighting fixture installed in the brick. The lighting fixture includes a base, the base including an upper circular platform surrounded by a perimetrical wall which is capped by a base-component of a mating snap-ring assembly. A central well depends from the circular platform, the well being enclosed by a generally-cylindrical boss. The central well communicates with a depending, hollow, rectangular parallelepiped member which is provided with a pair of longitudinally-extending openings for the passage of a pair of electrical wires. The depending, hollow, rectangular parallelepiped member is fitted with a standard wiring harness for insertion of a low voltage light bulb thereinto. The generally-cylindrical boss serves the dual function of accommodating the standard wiring harness therein, and its outer cylindrical surface frictionally-engages the bore through the brick to secure the lighting fixture to the brick. The lighting fixture also includes a circular lens cap which is provided with a cap-component of the mating snap-ring assembly for selective frictional engagement and disengagement with the base-component of the mating snap-ring assembly.
