IF SUPPLY WIRES ARE LOCATED WITHIN 3” OF BALLAST, USE WIRE RATED FOR AT LEAST 90˚C STEP 1: Insert fixture mounting screws (I) in threaded holes of universal mounting bar (J). Run screws all the way down to the heads. STEP 2: Place universal mounting bar (J) against outlet box (not suppplied) and screw in place using outlet box screws (not supplied). Be sure the mounting screws are perfectly horizontal so fixture hangs straight. STEP 4: GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS: The green grounding screw (L) is to be inserted into the hole with two raised dimples provided on the universal mounting bar (J). Wrap the ground wire from the fixture (if supplied) and the ground wire from the outlet box (bare metal or green insulated wire) around the green grounding screw (L) on the universal mounting bar (J). If uninsulated ground wire is on the universal mounting bar, connect the ground wire from the fixture (if supplied) and the outlet box to it using a small wire connector (not supplied) (See Figure 2). NOTE: Underwriters Laboratories does not require all fixtures to have ground wires. These fixtures still meet all U.L. specifications. NEVER CONNECT GROUND WIRE TO BLACK OR WHITE POWER SUPPLY WIRES. FINAL ASSEMBLY Make sure no bare wires can be seen outside wire connectors. STEP 3: A. Take note of the color of the wire(s) on your fixture. Identify which group your fixture wire(s) falls into and connect the wires according to the directions below: STEP 1: After wires are connected, tuck them carefully inside the outlet box. Position backplate (F) over mounting screws (I) and secure in place with cap nut (G). STEP 2: Insert short nipple (E) into diffuser (N) (as shown in Fig.1) & secure with decorative cap nut (H) (if applicable). STEP 3: Install lamps. STEP 4: GROUP A: CONNECT TO BLACK HOUSE WIRE BLACK *PARALLEL WIRE (ROUND & SMOOTH) WHITE OR GREY WITH TRACER BROWN, GOLD OR BLACK WITHOUT TRACER GROUP B: CONNECT TO WHITE HOUSE WIRE WHITE *PARALLEL WIRE (SQUARE & RIDGED) WHITE OR GREY WITHOUT TRACER BROWN, GOLD OR BLACK WITH TRACER *NOTE: When parallel wire is used, the tracer wire is square shaped or ridged, and the less tracer wire is round in shape or smooth. (Seen best when viewed from wire end.) To separate wires, grasp the ends of each wire and pull apart. B. Take your fixture wire(s) from group A and place evenly against the black wire from the outlet box. Do Not twist wires together before using wire connectors. C. Fit a wire connector (not supplied) over the wires and screw the connector clockwise until you feel a firmness. D. Try gently to pull the connector off the wires. If you can pull the connector off, carefully re-do steps B and C, as above, and check again for a firm connection. E. Connect the fixture wire from group B to the white wire from the outlet box in the same manner. Install fiber washer (M) and diffuser (N), in that order, onto pipe (B). Secure with decorative cap nut (H). CLEANING To clean, wipe fixture with a soft cloth. Clean glass with a mild soap. Do not use abrasive materials such as scouring pads or powders, steel wool or abrasive paper. ORDERING PARTS Keep this sheet for future reference, and in case you need to order replacement parts.
