PREPARATION (Fig.1)
1. Shut off the power at the circuit breaker and remove
old fixture, including the mounting hardware.
2. Carefully unpack your new fixture and lay out all the
parts on a clear area. Take care not to lose any
small parts necessary for installation.
3. Attach the Crossbar (B) to the Junction box (A) with
Screws (C). The side of the Back Plate marked
“GND” must face out.
4. Thread the Nipple (D) part way into the center hole
of the Crossbar (B).

CONNECTING THE WIRES (Fig. 2)
5. Connect the electrical wires as shown in Fig. 2,
making sure that all wire connectors are secured. If
your outlet box has a ground wire (green or bare
copper), connect the fixture’s Ground Wire to it.
Otherwise, connect the fixture’s Ground Wire directly
to the mounting plate using the Green Screw
provided. After the wires are connected carefully
tuck them inside the Junction box.
COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION
6. Place the Back Plate of Fixture Body (E) over the
Nipple (D) and secure it tightly using Cap Nut (F).
7. To prevent moisture from entering the outlet box and
causing a short, use clear caulking (i.e.
Indoor/Outdoor Silicone Sealant) to outline the
outside of fixture back-plate where it meets the wall
leaving a space at bottom to allow moisture a means
to escape (Fig.3).
8. Install light bulbs (not included) in accordance with
fixture specifications. (DO NOT EXCEED THE
MAXIMUM WATTAGE RATING!)
