Ceiling Lighting Wiring Help - Urgent
Hi Everyone.. new here!
My better (or worse) half accidentally hit the lighting fixture in our kids bedroom this morning, subsequently breaking one of screw catches.
Now, I can wire and the rest of our property has the correct mounting plates but this is...different...
It needs a new lighting fixture and preferably I'd love to do it today but this looks a bit of a hash job to me..
Can anyone please advise how to sort this out etc?
Have attached pics of how it's looking...
Yikes---No box---You are going to have to install a box there..If you can get to it from above the job is fairly straight forward. Easiest would be a 4 inch box with a round ring.
If you must attack this from the ceiling side--consider using a box with an adjustable bracket--these are usually found at the Depot in the lighting section----they allow you to do the entire install through a hole no bigger than the box.(which is included in the kit)
They are a bit pricey at $12.00--But you can get the light in without having any drywall repair.
here is the view on the loft side of things...
There are two switches here, one wall and the other is a ceiling mounted pull cord hence all the black wiring...
Look like you have a plan---Good luck--Have fun--Mike--
well the plan is not to kill myself ...
