Under no circumstances should a fixture be hung on house electrical
wires, nor should a swag type fixture be installed on a ceiling which
contains a radiant type heating system.
Read instructions carefully.
Proper wiring is essential for the safe operation of this fixture.
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, provide a watertight seal between

to be inserted into the hole with two raised dimples provided on the
cross mounting bar (B). 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
cross mounting bar (B) if uninsulated ground wire is on the cross
mounting bar (B), connect the ground wire from the fixture (if
