CONNECTING ELECTRICAL (Fig.2)
5. At this point,Connect the electric wires as shown in Fig

outlet box has a ground wire (green or bare copper),
connect the fixture’s ground wire to it, otherwise,
connect the fixture’s ground wire directly to the
crossbar using the green screw provided.
COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION
6. After wires are connected, tuck them carefully inside
the junction box as you place the fixture body (D) over
the nipple (C) and secure with knurled nut (E). (Fig.1).
7. To prevent moisture from entering the outlet box and
causing a short, use clear caulking (ie.Indoor
/Outdoor Silicone Sealant) to outline the outside of
fixture backplane 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) in accordance
with the fixture’s specification. (DO NOT EXCEED
THE SPECIFIED WATTAGE!)
