Installing a ceiling lamp? Here's how!

Installing a ceiling lamp can be tricky for some. However, with our instructions it can be an easy job!

 

What you need:

  • Electrical tester

  • Pair of pliers

  • Screwdriver

  • Screws and plugs

  • Possibly an Impact Drill

  • Drill

 

What you need:

Step 1. Turn off the power

Switch off any active power before installing and mounting your ceiling lamp. Use an electrical tester to determine that there is no active power supply to the wires. If the electrical tester is not lit, then there is no active power present.

Step 1. Turn off the power

Step 2. Attach the ceiling bracket

Unscrew the mounting bracket from the fixture and use the screws to attach the mounting bracket to the ceiling. Depending on your home you will need to attach the mounting bracket either to the junction box or to the ceiling. In older homes, the ceiling may not have a junction box in which case holes will need to be be drilled into the ceiling first and then the mounting bracket placed over the top.

Step 2. Attach the ceiling bracket

Step 3. Connect the wires to the ceiling lamp

Now its time to connect electrical wires to the light. You start by removing a little bit of the plastic surrounding the connection wires up to 0.5cm from the black and blue wire. The lamp wire insertion has two to three openings, two of these are black and blue wire and sometimes in the middle you will find an opening for an earthed wire (yellowgreen wire). If your pendant lamp is earthed, ensure you also connect this wire to the insertion of the pendant lamp opening and screw them tightly with a screwdriver.

Step 3. Connect the wires to the ceiling lamp

Step 4. Attach the ceiling lamp

After the mounting bracket is secure, place the fixture over the bracket and screw into place. This usually involves two screws on the either side of the mounting bracket.

Step 4. Attach the ceiling lamp

Step 5. Insert light bulb

Now that the ceiling lamp is fully installed, its time to insert a light bulb and turn the power back on. Often there is no light bulb that comes with a ceiling lamp, therefore it is important that you find a compatible light source to use. You will be able to find the right bulb for your needs on our website, you would also be able to see the maximum wattage required on the box that the lamp has arrived in. Once the power is on and light bulb is inserted, place the cover back on if this is required and turn on your lamp and see it come to life!
