Frank Wall Enterprises
It’s never been easier to fix broken or corroded tabs and slots on vinyl-liner sealing rings for underwater lights than with this revolutionary product, says Frank Wall Enterprises. Never use a wedge-style repair kit again. There is no need to remove the liner seeling ring because the Light Doctor installs on the outside, over the liner sealing ring. Available in eight-hole and 10-hole fixture styles for both the top and bottom sections of the light sealing rings.
