Frequently Asked Questions
I HAVE SEVERAL SKULL MOUNTS CAN I INSTALL A SKULL SHINE LIGHT KIT MYSELF?
Yes, Skull Shine can be installed in about 10 minutes. Simply unscrew the skull from the plaque, drill a 1/2” hole 1-2 inches below the skull screw. Be sure that all arrows are lined up on connections and that the arrow side of the LED strips are connected to the plus side of each strip. Place the lights in the skull, plug the 4 pin end of harness into the remote receiver and put the jack end in the drilled hole, secure the skull to the plaque, plug the jack ends for remote receiver and power adapter together and plug it into an outlet.
WHERE DO I PLACE THE LIGHTS IN THE SKULL?
Typically we place one light strip in the brain cavity and one in each nasal cavity.
CAN I PUT SKULL SHINE IN ARTIFICIAL SKULLS?
Yes, provided there is a cavity inside and the material is not so dense that light will not shine through. We have had good results with Mountain Mike’s Reproductions. And we sell Pinchback Reproduction skulls that are cast in transparent material.
WHAT COLOR ARE THE LIGHTS IN THE KITS?
Each kit can provide 20 static colors and 19 dynamic color changing modes as well as brightness control. All are remote controlled.
DO YOU HAVE PLAQUES THAT WILL HIDE THE WIRES?
Yes, although it is not necessary to use our custom plaques we do have custom plaques that are pre-drilled and set up to conceal the wires. The plaques can either pedestal or wall mounted.
ARE THE PLAQUES MADE FOR WALL MOUNTING OR PEDESTAL MOUNTING?
It is best to use a pedestal mount and set your trophy on a table top. Our plaques can be used as a wall mount as well by simply turning the top of the plaque 180 degrees.
WHAT TYPES OF WOOD DO YOU USE FOR YOUR PLAQUES?
All of our plaques are made with high quality wood and finishes. We like to use woods that have character and are unique in appearance. We offer Walnut and Oak; they are clear coated for a natural look. Other wood types are available if you would like to place a custom order.
DO YOU HAVE LIGHTS FOR OTHER TAXIDERMY MOUNTS?
We are currently working on other products for full mounts, head mounts and turkey displays. We can add lighting to any mount or display, contact us for more information.
WHERE CAN I BUY SKULL SHINE®?
