Prepare the Fixture
and Mounting Location
First turn off electricity!
Choose the location for the fixture, taking into consideration thelocation
of the joists,the 6 ½" depth clearance, electrical supply,
and ½" clearance from the joists or any other combustible
material in addition to the 3" clearance from insulation on the non-IC
2. Insert two
hanger bars into the slots located on either side of the plaster frame.
3. Fasten the hanger bars to the joist.
4. The fixture must be situated in a manner that allows access to the
junction box. Slide the fixture along the hanger bars to desired position
and secure by depressing one set of the plaster frame prongs together.
Remove the snap-lock cover on the junction box and knock out one location
on the box for your supply connection.
6. Proceed to Electrical Connections.
Ceilings and Renovations
1. Choose the
location for the fixture, taking into consideration the ½"
location of the joists, the 6 ½" depth clearance, electrical
supply, and clearance from the joists or any other combustible material
in addition to the 3" clearance from insulation on the non-IC type.
2 Remove the ceiling tile, cut a 4 1/2" diameter hole in the appropriate
location on the tile, and replace it onto the ceiling grid. A template
is provided to assist in cutting hole.
Remove a neighboring ceiling tile for access to the installation
4. Attach four support wires (not included) from above structure to the
four holes located in the corners of the plaster frame. Failure to do
this could eventually result in the collapse of the ceiling tile.
5. Feed the flex with the supply wires to the junction box. Make your
electrical connections and replace snap-lock cover.
1. Remove the
snap-lock cover and the appropriate knock out, from the junction box located
on the plaster frame. Attach the appropriate connector and wire from the
power source to the hole in the junction box.
Connect the white wire(s) from the fixture to the white wire (neutral)
of the supply circuit. Connect the black wire(s) from the fixture to the
black wire (hot) of the supply circuit. Connect the green (or bare copper)
colored wire to the grounding conductor of the supply circuit. Use UL
Listed wire connectors suitable for the size, type, and number of conductors.
No loose strands or loose wires should be present.
Replace the snap-lock cover onto the junction box, making sure that all
wiring is contained within the box.
1. Once the ceiling
is in place with the 4 ½" hole cut out, and the fixture in
place, attach the ceiling clips to prevent the fixture from moving when
attaching the trim.
2. Install the trim by pushing it up into the housing making sure the
retention clips are not near any slots or other clips in the housing.
3. For the eyeball trim installation refer to the template.
4. Install the bulb. Caution: Refer to the relamping label located near
the lamp holder for recommended wattage when replacing a burned out bulb.
Do Not Exceed Recommended Maximum Wattage. Fixtures are thermally protected
and will turn off if fixture gets too hot.
