Wiring Up a Light Fixture Video
Light fixtures are not a problem when it is over a table and the table is in place. But it can be a safety hazard when the table has been moved during a remodeling project. Besides, the light fixture could be damaged if hit by accident.
To solve the problem, take a 4" long piece of baling wire. Hold the light fixture up to the ceiling and pass the wire through the loop on the top of the fixture and through the top loop of the chain. Twist the wire several times to ensure it will hold.
Wiring up a light fixture will prevent damage to the fixture, your head and it will add extra light for your project. If your light fixture has decorative glass covers, you might want to remove them during the project.
