Answer: 
simple answer is to just but a fluorescent light with a plug in feature; they are on the same aisle as the lights you have to hard wire. Otherwise, you'll have to buy a cord and hard wire it to the light for plug in access

Answer: 
older units (8 yr) came with the 3 prong plug on them including 3 ft. appox. cord. There is no reason
for mfg. to not have them included with fixture, other than costs.

Answer: 
You'd need to buy a 3-wire cord and a 1/2" connector. The connector secures the wire to the fixture and protects it from being cut on the 1/2" knock-out. I think they have similar fixtures with a plug. You might go back and look.

You can buy power cords with a molded plug and one end and bare wires at the other. Be sure to buy a clamp thu which you'll pass the cable to secure it to the fixture. Usually it's cheaper to buy these configured as shop lights because they come with the power cord wired and ready to go.

I would suggest to purchase a shop light from Home Depot which is supplied with a plug in cord. Most electrical codes do not allow mounting this type of fixture with an extension cord.

Answer: 
The metal clip is what holds the cover on. There are two metal tabs that go into the slots on one end. (Hint: The cover goes on the outside of the main fixture) Once you have the metal tabs on the cover inserted into the slots, put the cover on, you might have to make sure all the wires are inside the main housing, then make sure the cover fits good. Now on the opposite end of the fixture is a small hole Read More

Now on the opposite end of the fixture is a small hole that lines up with a slot. The metal clip goes into that hole. It's a very snug fit and you will have to push really hard to insert it. Once you have it inserted, give it a 90 degree turn. You're done! Read Less

Answer: 
When you install the flat white cover over the ballast and wiring, the two tabs will go into the two slots at one end and on the other end, there is a hole in the cover that mates up with a hole in the base unit. The clip is pushed into holes and will hold the cover in place without needing a screw or other fastener. When installing the cover, the edges will go OUTSIDE of the fixture.

Answer: 
That little clip in the baggie is used to secure the cover at the end that doesn't have the tabs that fit into the slots in the fixture body.
The cover goes on the outside of the fixture, not the inside. This is superior to a cover that fits inside the fixture because there is less chance that the wires will be pinched by the sharp edges when the cover is installed.
When you have the cover properly Read More

The hardware bag should contain the ¼ turn fasteners. The channel cover should fit on the outside of the ballast channel. The channel cover should be secured with the ¼ turn fastener.

Answer: 
It was not that difficult to install. A basic knowledge of white to white and black to black wiring. I located the ceiling joists and pre-drilled the light so it was easier to handle by myself. If you can get some help holding the light while you attach it, the job is a breeze. Good luck!

I am assuming you are replacing fixtures that were previously installed in the same location. If this is the case installation would take approximately three hours, including electrical work.

Answer: 
There is no ground wire. This fixture is meant to be hard-wired and typical residential wire has two conductor and a ground wire. There is a green screw located inside the fixture near the middle where you attach the ground wire.

Answer: 
You supply the ground wire from your house wiring. There is a screw about midway for the ground wire. No unit like this comes prewired, if your house is old, it may not have a grounding wire in the Romex. In that case, you don't ground it. My home is very old and has no ground anywhere.

Most fixtures of this type do not have a seperate ground wire. You may find a green colored screw marked ground for attaching a ground wire. Generally BX or EMT will carry the ground.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 113 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GARBAGE !!!!!!! This light is a flimsy piece of junk. The metal its made out of is barely thicker than a beer can. I purchased two. I installed the first one and it did not work. I returned both. Will go to electrical supply house to get a decent light. I know we live in the disposable age, but this is beyond belief. Save your time and money !!!!!! August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Buy These Under Any Circumstances These are very cheaply made. For example, the cover keeps falling off. It is also very difficult to get the florescent light tubes into the unit. You save a bit of money, but I got several hours of frustration, and went out and bought another brand. July 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the lighting. Fairly quick installation of lighting. Love the product as I've used it before to replace lighting in kitchen as well as bathroom. July 4, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Garage light Assembly was. Not easy. Directions were poor. I had to use a couple other parts that were not included. June 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lights work great These lights were installed in my basement storage room. They work great. The only problem I had was that one of the ballasts did not work when I took it out of the box. Went back to Home Depot & returned it for a new light. No problem. June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Work/perform as expected. Good mid-range quality indoor lighting fixture.... May 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NOT A HAPPY CAMPER Purchased this fixture and was concerned based on the negative reviews. I hoped I'd be one of the lucky ones and I took a gamble. I had a contractor install the unit. It flickered on and immediately died. We verified that it was the unit and not the bulbs. This replaced an existing fixture. DIsappointing performance. Not only did it waste my time, it cost me a service call. Bad form. May 9, 2016
