Mounting options include (depends on year, make and model of vehicle, see product description for specific mounting location):
Post mount spotlights are the most common installation options, with the mounting going through the A-pillar running alongside the windshield. The A-pillar is the metal frame on the side of the windshield.
Inside post mount spotlights are common in late model vehicles, but the installation requires more time as one must drill through the A-pillar and cut a small notch in the forward window support of the door. Both inside post mount lights and post mount lights are mounted in the A-pillar. The difference is the angle of the light.
Door mount lights are mounted in the door. The door mount spotlight is an easy installation but the spotlight will move with the door when the door is opened and closed. While this isn’t suitable for most police patrol cars, most other operators find the door mount acceptable. In many cases, a particular make and model vehicle will not have a post mount spotlight option because the A-pillar is too small, but usually these vehicles have a door mount and a inside post mount option.
