If you have trouble every time you want to change the light bulb of your lamp, because of the height, you can then consider having the hanging light bulb as one of alternative ways in solving your problem. As you know that lamps can be hung from the ceiling in two ways. One is by hanging it from the electric box which mounted to the ceiling. Another is to use a swag-type hookup which involves securing hooks in the ceiling. If you think a single hanging light bulb looks so old and just ugly, you can actually adjust it using some others that get hung together. That would change the perspective of your point of view in seeing the hanging light bulb as decorative items for your room. There are some ways that you can follow in order to hang a lamp.
First, you are going to need ladder, screwdriver, and volt meter. After that you can directly turn off the power to the box first.
Second, you should use the ladder which placed right below the lamp box in the ceiling. You can then remove the cover plate. You can use the appropriate screwdriver to match the screws.
Third, you should be careful in removing the wire nuts from the wires in the box. You should also be keeping the wires from touching each other. There will be a black wire, a white wire and a green ground wire.
Fourth, you can start placing the volt meter on the black and white wires. This is to make sure that the power is off. After that you can raise the lamp up to the box in the ceiling and rest it on top of a ladder.
After you are done in mounting the lamp in existing box in the ceiling, we can go straight to the next process that is hanging a swag lamp from the ceiling. So, you can then locate where the lamp is to be hung. Mark it at the ceiling. After that you can place a hook in the ceiling and hang the chain from the lamp at the desired light. You can then let the chain hang down the wall and plug into the electric outlet.
