The extra slack that you see there just needs to be pulled out of the back of the safe.

I haven't gotten the lights yet but when I do, I will update.

I hate to be harsh in here but you have wrong box for that useage due you have no cord clamp.

What if someone yank on the cord and it come apart you will have heckva a mess to deal with it.

If it was for moi .,, Just grab a simple handy box with NM clamp to hold the cord in proper way IMO it little stronger that way plus with the clamp you will really reduce the chance of get it damaged.

Merci,Marc

What is an "NM clamp"? I agree, there should be something preventing the cord from being yanked, but in all honesty, that will most likely never really happen.
