Most Install Light Fixture No Stud Galleries - Begin by way of installing the bare copper grounds from the wall and the light to the inexperienced screw on the bottom mounting plate. Next be part of the white wires collectively with a new wire nut, then the black wires. Tuck the entirety well into the junction field.
Once the vintage mild is completely removed, determine whether there may be an current electric field. Older houses are possibly not to have a junction field. Adding one now is smart for structural reasons as well as electrical safety. In our case, no longer only did the present light lack a junction box. But the fixture sat off center from the mirror because of a wall stud. Ceiling containers are to be had as shallow as ½” for placement proper over a structural unit like our massive replicate. If your light isn't always at a wall stud, an “vintage work” upkeep boxes are available with swing out tabs to mount directly to the drywall. Use a four” hollow noticed to take away the drywall and mount the brand new container. Be careful to move wiring out of the manner first and best cut deep sufficient to get thru the drywall.
Installation the brand new mild base plate to the field. Make certain to run the circuit wires via a knock out hole. Level the base plate within the vertical or horizontal role relying in your fashion of light. Now's also a good time to fill any antique mounting holes that might not be utilized or blanketed up.

If i try to screw it in then there may be space between the wall and light fixture. What can i do?. I would trace the outline of that oval-formed piece of your light fixture onto a piece of wooden about as thick as or very slightly thicker than your mirror. Reduce it out after which reduce off a flat from the bottom in order that it fits above your replicate over the junction field within the wall. Drill mounting holes via it so that the fixture's mounting screws pass thru. Paint it either the same color as your wall, or see if you could discover a metallic paint which matches your fixture. Now you've got a spacer to mount the fixture on and although it will overhang the pinnacle of the mirror barely, i wager you'll hardly ever word it.
