installing odd bathroom light


I am installing an odd bathroom light. The light must match with the bracket due to the way it attatches. The instructions are confusing. My junction box has screws diagonal corners but the light bracket should go straight...i would have to turn the bracket but i dont think you should. There are screws in the junction box but the light came with more... what do i do?

That bracket is made to be able to turn 360 deg so it would work in any position. Not seeing what the issue is.

You screw the bracket to the box, the level the bracket to hold the fixture.
Just about every light fixture uses one of two brackets, and that is one of them.

People who make posts like this to add to their post counts, should have 10 posts deducted

Mods deduce 10 from me for making this post.

I know who Cletis is. Just don't understand the comment. Are they still calling each others hacks over there? That's why I stopped visiting.
