ITEM#_______________ INSTALLATION HC-937 IMPORTANT: DO NOT ATTACH FIXTURE DIRECTLY TO OUTLET BOX. CAUTION: DO NOT BEND TABS THAT SECURE GLASS. BENDING TABS WILL PREVENT THE GLASS FROM SITTING PROPERLY. STEP 1: Using outlet box screws (not supplied) fasten mounting bar [D] to outlet box through slots in mounting bar [D]. STEP 2: Thread nut [E] onto nipple [F] so that 5 threads are exposed above nut [E]. Thread that end of the nipple [F] into mounting bar [D] and tighten nut [E] against mounting bar [D]. STEP 4: GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS: The green grounding screw (G) is to be inserted into the hole with two raised dimples provided on the mounting bar (D). 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 (G) on the mounting bar (D). If uninsulated ground wire is on the universal mounting bar, connect the ground wire from the fixture (if supplied) and the outlet box to it using a small wire connector (not supplied) (See Figure 2). 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 STEP 3: 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 the outlet box. Position back plate (A) over nipple (F) and secure in place with cap nut (H). STEP 2: Install lamps. STEP 3: Slide the edge of diffuser (I) into backplate lip (G), making sure it securely fits in there. CLEANING GROUP A: CONNECT TO BLACK HOUSE WIRE BLACK *PARALLEL WIRE (ROUND & SMOOTH) GROUP B: CONNECT TO WHITE HOUSE WIRE WHITE *PARALLEL WIRE (SQUARE & RIDGED) *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. Do not use abrasive materials such as scouring pads or powders, steel wool or abrasive paper. ORDERING PARTS Keep this sheet for future reference, and in case you need to order replacement parts. All parts for this fixture can be ordered from place of purchase. Be sure to use exact wording from illustration when ordering parts. BALLAST REPLACEMENT TURN POWER OFF.
