CONNECTING THE WIRES (Fig. 2)
13. At this point, connect the electrical wire as shown in
figure 3, making sure that all wire connectors are

the crossbar using the green screw provided.
14. Tuck these wire connections neatly into the ceiling
junction box and then raise the canopy all the way to the
ceiling. Raise the Lock collar and thread onto ceiling
loop protruding through canopy.
