Replacing kitchen sink light fixture


I am replacing my kitchen sink light fixture. I removed the screws from the outlet box so that I could use the bracket that came with the light fixture and now I can't get the screws to catch to anything. What am I doing wrong?

Are they the same screws that you removed? If so, I don't know why they won't catch. Not sure what kind of box you have. Try a 6/32 or 8/32. Those are the most common size screws used.

Thanks for your help. Yes, I was using the screws that I removed initially, but decided to use the screws that came with the fixture and that solved my problem.
