I bought a led solar motion activated light and I am wondering what is the best way to install it on a house that has vinyl siding.
I seen a few possible ways
- Drill holes directly into the vinyl and then add vinyl siding mounting block.
- Get vinyl siding hooks and try to mount it that way.
For the first way I am unclear if I need to found a stud to install it on to or if I can choose anywher? If I need to find a stud how do I do this? Will a stud finder be able to go through the vinly?
For the second way. I am not sure if these hooks will be able to hold the light I linked too and where I live it can get extremely windy (and in the winter time snows) so it would need to stand up to elements.
