Loox LED model 3038 recessed or surface mounted lights

If you are looking for under cabinet lights for your kitchen or bathroom cabinets, Loox model 3038 is a great choice. They are a 24V light and 3 watts each. Thus this light is the equivalent of a 20 watt halogen. But without the high heat and higher electric consumption. Five of these 3-watt lights at 15 watts total would light up the same area that 100 watts of halogen lighting would have. This LED light is also very economically priced. So for applications where you require many lights, you do stand to save a lot of money with this light.
The casing is all metal in both finishes: polished chrome plated, and stainless steel color. The front decor ring and back metal casing are fused as one piece. Nothing is designed to come apart on this light. So for some of you familiar with older style halogen lights dropping their decor rings onto the countertop or floor, this will not happen with this light.

The back of the light has 3 friction fit clips. They are pre-set to fit into a 2-3/16" diameter hole. They can compress more. So the light can fit into the ever popular 2-1/8" hole if you already have pre-bored holes. Lights are prepackaged as a recessed light. Surface mount rings are optional. When choosing to surface mount the light, overall height is approx. 5/8". When recessed mounting the light, the lights protrude off the surface under 1/16", they are extremely low rise.

This light of course can be used in entertainment centers, fine furniture, and many other applications. It is very practical for under cabinet use in kitchens due to its lumen output being suited for kitchen cabinet lighting. Lights are dimmable. Available in three finishes, each coming in 3000K, 4000K, and 5000K light outputs. The 3000K resembles halogen lighting the best. 79" lead wire preattached to each light. (Note, some kelvins may not be available anymore as Hafele is phasing out this light in lieu of their new Loox5 lighting line.)

What do we choose to stock?

Of the items shown directly below, here is what we keep in our stock for quick shipping:
  • The HAF-833.75.150 stainless steel 3000K light in large quantities (since it is the most popular choice). And the HAF-833-75.140 polished chrome light (limited stock left). 3000K has always been more popular than the 4000K and 5000K choices.
  • All other lights generally take us 3 to 6 days to receive. Direct ships are possible too.
  • We stock the 20 watt drivers in abundance and keep some of the 40 watt on hand.
  • The stainless steel and polished chrome surface mount rings we stock around a dozen each of.

NOTE: Spring 2022, Hafele has chosen to discontinue this light, but lots of stock still exists. We will continue offering it for as long as supplies last. Reason it is discontinued is only because Hafele is converting their products offerings to Loox5. So the Loox5 lights that will take over for the 3038 lights are the Loox5 2094-3094 lights. The 2094-3094 however will require a 2-5/16" dia. hole to fit into for recessed applications, they will be 1/8" larger on the backside. Thus, they are not going to fit into that popular Hera 2-1/8" hole. For a brand new installation, no trouble at all. But when retrofitting from old halogen to modern LED, bored hole sizes will need to be larger to accommodate the new lighting.

Ordering note:
For new installations, order the number of lights that you need. Set them up to work from one LED power driver or divide them by zones if you need some controlled independently of others. If you have some lights on the other side of the room and cannot string wires to reach them, then you will need to set up a different zone controlled by its own LED driver. Lights are dimmable. For accessories: LED power drivers | Loox5 24V LED Drivers and Distributors | Dimmers and Switches | Terminal blocks and extension cables. Lights are plug and play installation into the drivers, very simple installation. Each model 3038 light is 3 watts. The stainless steel finish light is a brushed stainless steel finish. The silver color finish can be considered matte chrome or dull chrome, that is what it looks like to us.

Order surface mount rings separately if doing a surface mount application.

If you have any questions prior to ordering, please call or e-mail us.
