Installing a pendant lamp? Here's how!
Have you finally found a beautiful pendant lamp to go above your dining table or kitchen island but you don't know how to install it? The following instructions will show you how to do it!
What you need:
Pair of pliers
Screws and plugs
Possibly an Impact Drill
Step 1. Turn off the power
Switch off any active power before installing your pendant lamp. Use an electrical tester to determine that there is no active power supply to the wires. If the electrical tester is not lit, then there is no active power present.
Step 2. Attach the ceiling bracket
Drill the required holes for the ceiling bracket and screw the mounting bracket on to the ceiling. For some properties you might need a hook to go with the ceiling bracket, we do not supply this however you are able to purchase from any DIY store.
Step 3. Connect the wires to the pendant lamp
Now its time to connect electrical wires to the light. You start by taking off a little bit of the plastic surrounding the connection wires up to 0.5cm from the black and blue wire. The lamp wire insertion has two to three openings, two of these are black and blue wire and sometimes in the middle you will find an opening for an earthed wire (yellow-green wire). If your pendant lamp is earthed, ensure you also connect this wire to the insertion of the pendant lamp opening and screw them tightly with a screwdriver.
Step 4. Attach the pendant lamp
Attach the pendant lamp to the mounted bracket on the ceiling. Simply raise the light up to the bracket and screw the ceiling rose/plate.
Step 5. Insert light bulb
Now that the pendant lamp is fully installed, its time to insert a light bulb and turn the power back on. Often there is no light bulb that comes with a pendant lamp, therefore it is important that you find a compatible light source to use. You will be able to find the right bulb for your needs on our website. Once the power is on and light bulb is inserted, turn on your lamp and see your lamp come to life!
