Learn how to install a light fixture mounting plate, to mount your new ceiling light fixtures, in this free video.
Hi, this is Jon and in this clip we will be installing our mounting plate. Our mounting plate bracket comes with two screws. The long, flat piece will go up against our blue box that we've installed and that will be fastened on with our screws. This threaded piece that hangs down, that is what the light fixture is going to fit on to, and this nut at the bottom will hold that light fixture up. I always recommend just starting one of the screws. You can slip that mounting plate on to that screw and install your second screw. If you're using a drill when installing these, make sure you don't go too fast that you strip out your box. Wiggle that around just to make sure that everything is secure.
