I have a recessed ceiling light where i would like to install a hardwired light. Its an island light that i got at lowes. it just has the two black wires and the ground. Is there such a thing as a conversion kit that i can just screw into the socket that has the wires on it, and can just mount the light?
Or, do i need to actually uninstall the recessed light fixture, install a box and then hook it up? I really dont want to screw with having to take it all apart, but i suppose if my wife really needs this light over our kitchen island, then i guess i know what i'll be doing.
If you screw something into the socket it would still not be called hard wired.
They do make a gizmo that looks like a screw in fuse and screws into a lamp socket and has a 2 prong receptacle in it.
"Swag" refers to a light fixture that is hung from a chain and the chain with wires (cord) continues horizontally to the wall and the cord is then plugged into a receptacle.
Hard wiring means installing a junction box. It is possible that the feed going to the old light does not have a ground but you can still install a new light fixture.
Stick to your lawn watering schedule until it really starts to pour. After the storm you have only the same number of rest days you always had and then you need to start watering again.
