Wire connectors include:

  • Knockout connector
  • Twist-on wire connector
  • Crimp wire connector
  • Copper wire connector

To install a light fixture you will need a dedicated electrical copper wire circuit, the right type of wiring for the particular fixture, tools such as wire cutters and strippers, screwdrivers and a voltage tester.

Heavy fixtures may also require the use of a helping hand to secure them in place.

Circuit breaker

It is important to check the circuit breaker before beginning any installation or repair work.

This will ensure that the power to the fixture is off and reduce potential risks of harm or injury.

A fully qualified lighting installer will know how to safely reset a circuit breaker in the event of an overload or short circuit.

Mounting plate

A mounting plate, or junction box, is necessary to securely mount a light fixture.

It must be properly grounded and have the correct type of wiring for the particular fixture.

A grounding bar and grounding wire may also be required for certain types of fixtures to protect against electrical surges and shocks.

A qualified and approved lighting installer will have the necessary knowledge and expertise to ensure that the grounding bar is installed correctly, thus eliminating any potential hazards from electric shock or fire.

Wall Switch

Also the wall switch is important in that it powers the lighting system, and should be installed by a qualified installer.

The lighting installer will have all the necessary tools and knowledge to properly install a wall switch and ensure that it is connected with the right circuit breaker and fuse.

All of these will need to connect to the main electrical box to provide electricity to the lighting system. A qualified and approved electrician will need to be consulted in order to safely install the wiring and connections.
