How to install an outlet to a light bulb fixture.
 
Okay so we have a garage with a light bulb fixture and a light switch in this garage nothin else.
Is it possible to connect a power point to the light fixture instead of the light bulb fitting?


The switch for the light bulb has only 2 wire going to the switch, I am not sure how many wire the light fixture has.


If this is at all possible, how would one go about fitting the new power out let?
Any information will be great thanks regaurds Enforcefx

Based on your spelling of reguards I am going to guess you are not in the US?

Since the switch has only two wires if you want a receptacle then you must connect it to the light fixture box. How you connect it depends on if you want it switched with the light or always on.
