In case you have a chandelier which hangs off center on your dining table table because of where it connects to the electrical fixture, you may add a swag to it and reposition it where you want it. And if you want to add a swag light everywhere in your home, the process is the same. Make certain that the anchor hook may take care of the burden of the lighting fixture you plan to hang from it. The best place to hang a swag lighting is from a ceiling joist, which necessitates having a stud finder to find one at the ceiling.
Set the stepladder up to get the ceiling. Assess the distance between the electrical fixture and the location where you want to place the swag lighting. This gives you a general idea of how much you can drape the string and if you have sufficient cord to reach the socket. For a chandelier, measure from the fixture to the desired hook location. You might need a longer cord and string to accommodate the dimensions. If so, replace these before going to another step.
Find the ceiling joist where you’ll secure the anchor hook. Set the stud finder on the ground Fresno, and move it slowly across the ceiling over the table at the direction perpendicular to the ceiling joists. Ceiling joists normally span the space between the load-bearing walls the width of this room.
Make a mark with your pencil once you discover the right ceiling joist. To test the truth, insert a straight pin in that location. If it encounters resistance, you’ve found the joist. If it doesn’t, move the pin to either side to test for the joist location.
Put in the anchor hook in the joist location, screwing it in closely. If it is hard to turn, use pliers to gently turn it clockwise until its base sits flat against the ground. Repeat for extra hooks you might need to swag the lighting.
Insert the anchor hook through the string of this lighting fixture whenever you have the desired dip in it that you want. For a chandelier, simply create a dip in the string of the desired thickness and hook the chain that holds the chandelier onto the anchor hook. For a swag mild, hook the string to the very first hook and after that create the dip desired to attach it to the next hook.
