Interesting dilemma with mounted light fixture
I’m a novice to most things home improvement, so bear with me on this potentially ridiculous question. 🙂
I was trying to remove a hanging light fixture in the kitchen and mount a new one, and I noticed when I got the current fixture lowered, the cord of the light was attached to a slightly recessed black adapter within the mounting bracket that read safe switch/not interchangeable with other lamps (if not descriptive enough, I can provide a picture.)
What I was expecting was to lower the lamp from the mount and unscrew a couple of twist caps/ground and be done, but I didn’t see any twist caps for the current light.
There was only a little bit of thread available on the bottom of this switch, not really even enough to grab with my fingers and unscrew — so maybe a wrench or something is required.
Does anyone know what that might be/how to properly remove it? I unscrewed the screws of the mounting bracket as well, but it didn’t just pull down out of the outlet box.
