Landscape lights that lean/tilt over

Is there a way to prevent landscape lights from tilting over? I installing some junk solar lights and they constantly leaned, or fell off their mounts when dragging a hose etc... Well I have decided to go the low-voltage route this time (solar led lights were never bright enough) and I want to know if there are any tricks to prevent the lights from tilting over. I thought of either getting larger mounts somehow that go deeper in the ground, or possibly cementing them into minuture footing (perhaps a bit extreme). Also, I need to run some type of conduit through the footing to resist reaction with the concrete. Any idears? Thanks.

If you buy good quality fixtures, either low or line voltage, they'll mount to a half inch threaded hole. You can buy "rocket" posts which are about 18" long, which give good support or "Kim" makes a thing called a "J-2" which is a bell box poured in a trapezoid block of cement and you screw a cover plate with half inch threaded tap in it to mount the fixtures

Thanks, I think this is exactly what I was looking for. Is this kim product "http://www.kimlighting.com " ? I checked some of the J2X mounting options and it indicated NPT and NPSM type mounts, are they thread type definitions? What is the difference? I checked "http://www.dent-mfg.com/threadsizes.htm " but I think I have to check out the lighting system I'm going to buy and see what the requirement is, NPT or NPSM, is that the way to go? Thanks.

You want NPT, but I made a mistake, The J-2 is just a plain cast iron box, not the one cast in concrete. I haven't used either in years, I'm really partial to the rocket posts or "RAB" mounting posts. They are easier to install and water doesn't collect in them
