Outdoor outlet NOT in wall
We had a hollow wood lamp post which housed, in addition to the wire to the lamp at the top, an outlet which was handy for holiday lighting, among other things. The post rotted and we are replacing it with a metal pole set in concrete. I would like to retain the outlet. If I don't tell him otherwise, I'm sure the handyman will just screw the square outlet onto the outside of the pole. That's so untidy. I'd rather have the outlet mounted on it's own small post next to the pole, or some other, preferable way. Perhaps there's an outlet with a curved back for mounting on poles? I'm sure there's a standard better way to do it but I don't know what that is and I can't find any pictures. Can you tell me?
