ceiling light fixture octagon


Need to replace an electrical box for a ceiling light fixture. Saw a steel city 4 inch octagon box with v bracket that said for conduit. model 5415112v. Can this be used for the ceiling light fixture? Thanks.

Your cat # is a bit off. It should be 54151-V-1/2

It looks like this:



It will work with conduit systems, and other wiring methods with the proper connectors. Yes, it's made for ceiling light fixtures. But not for fans.

It can also be used with other wiring methods besides conduit.

Is 15.5 cu in too small for two 14/2 wires with metal clamps and ceiling fixture with 2 or 3 wires. Does the metal bar for the ceiling fixture add anything? Thanks.
