Answer: 
The people saying the other lights won't go out are correct. I can verify this as I took mine apart to rewire it for LED bulbs.
The outlet is wired in parallel to the incoming voltage. Even if the ballast, sockets, lightbulbs go out, the outlet on the side of the shop light will still have electricity. As long as nothing happens to the wires inside it should work fine.
Also, the outlet is not wired Read More

Also, the outlet is not wired through the switch so turning off the lamp does not turn off power to the outlet. Read Less

Answer: 
These lights are connected in parallel. They cannot be connected in series as many Christmas light strings. These lights are designed to operate on 120 VAC and each fixture must receive 120 VAC to operate. When connected in parallel (as the designed outlet is connected in each light) each light will receive 120 VAC.

These lights are connected in parallel. They cannot be connected in series as many Christmas light strings. These lights are designed to operate on 120 VAC and each fixture must receive 120 VAC to operate. When connected in parallel (as the designed outlet is connected in each light) each light will receive 120 VAC. Although plugging one light into the outlet of the previous light appears to be series, it is not since the internal wiring in each light fixture connects the outlet in parallel, If two lights are actually connected in series then the 120 VAC power is divided according to the resistance of the fixtures. Assuming that the fixtures are the same then each of the two lights would receive only 60 VAC and would not function. When using the recommended 32 watt tubes, each light fixture would require approximately 1 Amp of current during steady operation. Four lights connected together would require about 5 Amps of current. The maximum recommended current for the outlet is 5 Amps; therefore, you should not connect over a total of four fixtures together. Keep in mind that if you have a wall switch wired into the light circuit, then all of the lights connected to the switch will operate together. Read Less

Answer: 
If one of your fixtures goes out, then all in-line fixtures will also go out.
An example would be, say your fixtures are called A, B, C, and D. Now, let's say that your first fixture is A, and B,C,and D are all plugged into each other. If fixture B goes out, than C, and D will also go out, but A will still be working.
Hope that answers your question.

Depends how they are wired. If wired in series where successive fixtures depend on power from the previous fixture, yes if the ballast fails (no if only 1/more bulbs fail). If wired in parallel where all take power independently from a common source (best way), no. You can run 1 power line thru several fixtures, splicing jumpers from both hot & neutral wires to the black & white leads from each fixture Read More

Yes, you can mount the fixtures without the chains. That's how I hung my 4 fixtures. I used 6 screws per fixture and screwed them into 2x4's. You don't need to take the fixture apart to screw them in. Simply drop the protective cage down and drive your screws through the reflector into whatever material you'll be mounting them into.

Yes. I think there are holes in the top & if not, you can drill 2. You will have to disassemble the light, attach the top to the ceiling, & reassemble it in place. The disassembly & reassembly is not hard ( I did it to wire in a longer cord) but doing it attached to the ceiling will add to the difficulty.

Answer: 
Yes it can, but you are adding a high degree of difficulty to your project. The whole point of having the plug-in pigtail is to allow you to safely work on a light without turning off the entire lighting circuit. Because this lights can be daisy chained it makes them very easy to install. If you can hardwire the light you can install a switched outlet to plug it into.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 140 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great light for garage Put two of these as overhead lights in my garage, may add a third one. Using the Philips 5000K LED lamps in there too, tons of light, really nice. I like the protective grill on there too. August 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Workmanship Quality of this light is questionable. Misshapen parts and retaining clips are worthless Good: Nice looking from a distance. Operates with less than full 4 bulbs, I choose all four. Everything supplied you need to install the fixture. Except the bulbs. Already wired with 5 foot 3 prong plug. Has receptacle to daisy chain fixtures. Weak: Mounting chains supplied very light duty. We had to squeeze some open links to close the chain. Retaining clips for holding the light guard are worthless. The center clip held in place with pan head screw into a flat piece of plastic. Already one failed. The clips without the screws are so poor they can not even clip onto the light. I either will remove the light guards or drill fixture and clips so they actually hold the bulb guard in place.
