PREPARATION (Fig. 1)
1. Shut off power at the fuse box or circuit breaker box.
If necessary, remove old fixture and all mounting
hardware from wall junction box.
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 Circular Strap (A) to the junction box with
the two Junction box screws (B) as shown. The side
of the Circular Strap marked “GND” must face out.
4. Place the Studs (C) into the pre-drilled holes in the
Circular Strap (A) spaced the same distance apart as
the holes in the Back-plate.
CONNECTING THE WIRES (Fig. 2)
5. Connect the fixture wires to the junction box wires as
shown in the wiring diagram. Making sure all wire
connectors are secured and do not easily pull off
with a slight tug. If there is no Green Ground wire
from the junction box, connect the Fixture Ground
Wire to the circular strap with the green Screw
provided.
COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION
6. Place Back plate (D) onto Studs (C) and secure
with Knurled Knobs (E).
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 1*60W A15 bulb (not included) into socket in
accordance with the fixture’s specification. (DO NOT
EXCEED THE SPECIFIED WATTAGE!)
