    Just wanted to let everyone that I am going to purchase a container of lightbars from china. These are very impressive lights. Over 50 different types of lightbars with takedowns, alleys, flashers... LED Strobe roating halogen any type you want. Let me know if I order if youd be interested in purchasing some at about half the price they are in the states. They supply over 200 law enforcement agencies in the US.

    As a professional vehicle equipment installer, I would advise you NOT to buy any of these lights from China. They are junk copies of high quality american products that have been shamefully ripped off and poorly made with inferior components.
    Think you can get parts for them if something breaks? Nope.
    Think they have great tech support like the American companies like Whelen, FedSig, ShoMe, etc? Nope.
    Think they have a repair department to fix your problems? Nope.
    Think they have a warranty? Probably not.

    Buyer Beware

    You get what you pay for.

    Maybe that's why he's buying a container to get the parts for them when they break!

    Don't buy them... even if you've got a great deal on them. Yes you will be able to get rid of them to anyone looking for a steal but they'd be paying for it in the long run.

    Why has he not responded to any of the comments back?? If it was me i would at least say a few words to defend myself! I guess we will have to wait and see what they really look like and watch to see if there is a Chinese price tag on them as well.

    Well if they are cheap enough just think of them as throw away bars use it for a year or two and toss them. or use them in spots that will be bad for the good bars like on equipment that gets under trees.
    Matt is right china bars definatly not there as quality

    haveing a hard time posting image

    how do you post an image on the site

    Second. CHINA is junk????? ok sounds a bit impulsive...like your afraid people wont buy form you or something. Cant tell for sure from your site, but it looks like you have some North American Signal lights on your website.... American made right... nope. There LED 3000-A and LED5000A are both made at this factory in China. You know people like you that talk &$(* about every chinese part that comes here, and yeah I would live to buy 100% american but man get your facts together before you start barkin. Call NAS and ask what percent of there lights are american made.... then ask what % are just american assembled. oh and your cornering strobes. FIND one company in the entire US that MANUFACTURES not assembles but actualy manufactures them here......................Exactly. Other then that if someone can help me get these pics to you well be on our way.

    almost forgot

    company has been in business for 18 years 10 year warranty on LED lightbars unless you take out a tree. People need to wake up and realize how much of your american made product is american.

    I think someone's abit testy! We're just giving you our opinion since you ask for it. If you back the bars and become a sales rep for them good luck. You may find out that what people are saying on here is truthful.
