STEP 1: Secure mounting bar (A) to outlet box with outlet box screws (not supplied). Thread nut (B) on nipple (C) so that 3 threads are exposed above nut (B). Thread nipple (C) into mounting bar (A) and secure with nut (B). Attach screw collar (D) to nipple (C). STEP 2: Using 2 pairs of pliers, open one link of chain (G) and connect it to the fixture loop (I) at the top of the fixture. STEP 3: Slide the screw collar ring (F) and canopy (E), in that order, over chain (G). Open one link on the other end of the chain (G) and attach it to the screw collar (D) which has been mounted to the ceiling nipple (C). BE SURE TO CLOSE ALL CHAIN LINKS COMPLETELY. STEP 4: Lace wires up through chain (G) and pass wires through holes in screw collar (D). We recommend lacing wire up through every other link of chain (G). 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. STEP 6: GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS: The green grounding screw (R) is to be inserted into the hole with two raised dimples provided on the mounting bar (A). Wrap the ground wire (S) from the fixture (if supplied) and the ground wire from the outlet box (bare metal or green insulated wire) around the green grounding screw (R) on the mounting bar (A) if uninsulated wire is on the mounting bar (A), connect the ground wire (S) from the fixture (if supplied) and the outlet box to it using a small wire connector (not supplied). NOTE: Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.) does not require all fixtures to have ground wires. These fixtures still meet all UL specifications. The listing mark of Underwriters on the product identifies products manufactured under its listing and Follow-Up Service Programs. NEVER CONNECT GROUND WIRE TO BLACK OR WHITE POWER SUPPLY WIRES. FINAL ASSEMBLY STEP 5: Make sure no bare wires can be seen outside wire connectors. 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 outlet box and then raise the canopy (E) against ceiling and screw the screw collar ring (F) to the screw collar (D). STEP 2: Install candle covers (Q) (if applicable). STEP 3: Install lamps. STEP 4: Install glass in holder if applicable.
