IKEA is known for its stylish and affordable home furnishing and fixtures. One of IKEA's offerings are a wide arrange of lighting fixtures, including the Kristaller chandelier. One of the ways that IKEA keeps its prices low is by having customers put their new purchases together themselves.
Because IKEA is a multinational company, its instructions are completely pictorial.
Attach the fixture hook to the ceiling using the screws so the hook is directly below electrical wires.
Loosen the screw holding the wiring cover in place on the Kristaller by twisting the screw counter-clockwise. Do not remove the screw, twist until it is loose enough to lower the cover. Lower the cover so you can see the loop and wires.
