IF SUPPLY WIRES ARE LOCATED WITHIN
3” OF BALLAST, USE WIRE RATED FOR
AT LEAST 90˚C

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.

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

with cap nut (G).
STEP 2:

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 off, carefully re-do steps B and C, as above, and
check again for a firm connection.
