What hardware do I need to complete this?
I bought outdoor lamps for a small horse barn. The fixtures did not
include the hardware to attach them to the electrical box in the
According to the illustration that came with the fixtures the lamps
hang from a bracket that is secured to the box. The only thing
supporting the bulb, the reflector, the socket and the cord is a
strain relief above the bracket that is attached to the box and
covered by a plastic plate??
I was expecting a hollow nut with something like a compression fitting
to support the cord at the bracket (!)
Is this the same type of strain relief that is used in small
appliances or something sturdier? The illustration that came with the
lamps shows only a plastic grommet to isolate the cord from chafing on
the bracket and a flat washer/nut above the bracket. If the strain
relief supports the weight of the fixture am I supposed to tie a knot
in the cord above it?
