Fitting Instructions

Before installing the light, switch off the mains electricity supply. If required, disconnect and remove your existing light making notes of the how the wires are positioned and connected.

These instructions apply to fitting a wall light that is intended for indoor use only. Offer the light to the wall where you would like to position your light, ensuring you have a strong fixing point ' a wall stud or batten is ideal. Mark and drill the holes for the fixing screws taking care not to damage any electrical cables. Insert rawlplug?'s if necessary.

We recommend you use the appropriate sealed connector block within your wall cavity to connect your light to the supply wire. Ensure the cables are fully inserted into the connector block and connect the wires in accordance with the wiring diagram.

Fix your light to the wall using the screws provided.
