Same if not lighter than old one.

This may be your entire problem depending on why it is loose and how it's mounted. See if you can tighten it up.

Garage lights


Generally are garage fixtures smaller than the front porch and patio fixtures?

My garage mounting plate is the normal 6 3/4 inches. My porch and deck have a much bigger wooden mount. This bigger fixture has a wall plate that measures 7 inches up and down so although I wanted it for the garage it wouldn't fit on the mounting plate. Do people usually have smaller ones on their garage anyway?
