We bought 8 outdoor brushed nickel lanterns for our new home. Noticed 1 of them had rusted after being installed for 1 week. Returned that one and got a replacement. After being in our home for 1 month all the lanterns are rusted. These were for outdoor use. Some are installed under a porch roof so they are not even in the rain but are rusting anyways. Very poor design. Not happy!! They are no longer under warranty and I do not have the receipts for them at this time. Have tried to return them to Home Depot but w/o a receipt they will not take them back. Now we have to buy all new ones (not Hampton Bay) and pay an electrician to install them. We have bought Hampton Bay products in the past w/ no problems. But after reading others complaints we will not be buying from Hampton Bay again.

Same problem here. Called Home Depot/Hampton Bay and they said these lamps can't take salt water (we are one street back from the bay). It's a shame because these have a neat nautical look to them...
