Connect Wires to Light Fixtures

Tim Carter demonstrates how to connect wires to a simple light fixture.

Screws For Wires

Simple light fixtures that you find in basements and garages usually have different colored screws where you attach the wires.

You want to put the HOT black wire on the brass screw and the neutral white wire on the silver screw.

If you do it backwards, you'll energize the threads inside the socket and if you touch the threads on the bulb as you screw it in, you could get ZAPPED!
