Installing Kit 8

This Guide is to help you in installing our KIt 8 for wooden bases.

Step 1: Drill a 9.5 - 10mm hole into the wood.

Step 1

Step 2: Screw the wood nipple into the bottom of the lampholder, Please ensure the silver screw inside lampholder is unscrewed so the nipple can thread right into the lampholder. Then tighten the silver screw in the bottom of the lampholder this will lock the nipple to the lampholder.

Step 2    Step 2

Step 3: Screw the complete lampholder unit into the hole drilled in step 1.

Step 3

Step 4: Wire the lampholder so the un wired end is sticking out the base of the lampholder and wire the earth as shown in image.

Step 4

Step 5: Wire the porcelain insert, Please note it does not matter what way around the Live (Brown) and Neutral (Blue) connect.

Step 5

Step 6: Once connected screw the top section of the lampholder onto the base, Ensuring the alignment is correct by aligning the indents on the base - Insert - Top section (Alignment info can be found at bottom of this guide)

Step 6

Step 7: The final step is to install the cord grip, this is key to stop the cable from being pulled out of the light fitting by accident.

This cord grip may not be suitable for every installation, if you have a flat base and the cable comes out the bottom then this will work as per the image below.

If you have a hole in the side for example then you would need a 10mm cord grip with male thread sold separately.
