Remove knock-out from the backplate (if applicable), or remove plastic bushing. 2. Install Romex / Bx connector on the backplate. 3. Feed house supply wires through Romex / Bx connector, and secure. 4. Make wiring connection as described in the steps that follow, and tuck the wires between the faceplate and backplate. INSTALLATION TO AN OUTLET BOX (Fig. 1) STEP 1: Punch out appropriate holes in backplate (C), if applicable, to correspond with holes in outlet box. STEP 2: Push socket wires thru plastic bushing. STEP 3: STEP 4: GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS: The green grounding screw (A) is to be inserted into the hole with two raised dimples provided on the back plate (C). 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 (A) on the back plate (C). NOTE: Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.) does not require all fixtures to have ground wires. These fixtures still meet all U.L. 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 Make sure no bare wires can be seen outside wire connectors. Note: Fixtures that employ a grounded type receptacle are not intended for connection to a two wire ungrounded source of supply. STEP 1: 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: Tuck wires into outlet box. Attach backplate (C) to outlet box by placing outlet box screws (not supplied) through punched out holes in backplate (C). If applicable: Wood screws (K) placed in outer holes will provide additional support. Note: Your fixture may be supplied with a faceplate (F), decorative front (E), or both, depending on your model. Follow the directions below according to the parts supplied with your fixture. STEP 2: Position faceplate (F) or decorative front (E) over sockets (J). NOTE: If backplate (C) is supplied with mounting studs (H) position faceplate over studs and secure in place with cap nuts (G). STEP 3: GROUP A: CONNECT TO BLACK HOUSE WIRE GROUP B: CONNECT TO WHITE HOUSE WIRE BLACK WHITE *PARALLEL WIRE (ROUND & SMOOTH) *PARALLEL WIRE (SQUARE & RIDGED) WHITE OR GREY WITH TRACER WHITE OR GREY WITHOUT TRACER For fixtures supplied with cups: Push faceplate (F) or decorative front (E) to wall and secure by pushing cups (I) onto sockets (J) in a clockwise motion. (If your fixture is supplied with threaded sockets, thread rings (L) onto sockets (J) in the same manner except screw them on.) NOTE: If both decorative front (E) and faceplate (F) are supplied, place faceplate (F) and wood (or mirror), in that order, over sockets (J) before securing with cups or rings (L). NOTE: It may be necessary to bend tabs in cup (I) for a tighter fit. STEP 4: BROWN, GOLD OR BLACK WITHOUT TRACER BROWN, GOLD OR BLACK WITH TRACER Install lamps CLEANING *NOTE: When parallel wire is used, the tracer wire is square shaped or ridged, and the less tracer wire is round in shape or smooth. (Seen best when viewed from wire end.) To separate wires, grasp the ends of each wire and pull apart. B. Take your fixture wire(S) from group A and place evenly 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 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. To clean, wipe fixture with a soft cloth. Clean glass with a mild soap.
