How to Hang a Pendant Light

So, you're awaiting the day you receive your wonderful, new Niche pendant light. What do you do until then? Read up on how to hang a pendant light, of course!

CAUTION! Before you begin:

Be sure the power is turned off by either removing the fuse or shutting off the circuit breaker. 

Installing your Niche pendant is pretty straightforward, but we always suggest that you work with a certified electrician to ensure proper installation. An electrician can also install your lights on a dimmer switch if using dimmable bulbs. This is highly recommended.


Standard Canopy Kit Includes:

(A) Mounting Screws

(B) Nipple Pipe

(C) Canopy

(D) Wire Strain Relief

(E) Crossbar

(F) Canopy Strain Relief

(G) Glass Strain Relief

(H) Socket Cover

(I) Threaded Socket

(J) Shade Ring

1. Set Drop Length

Measure twice, cut once! Make sure your pendant hangs at the right height by setting your drop length ahead of time.


2. Wire It Up

Your pendant includes everything you need to install directly into a junction box. Thread the wire-end of your cord through the included parts of the canopy kit, as pictured in the above diagram. Connect the light fixture wires to the wires in the junction box, followed by attaching (E) the crossbar & (C) the canopy. Your electrician will be able to help you with these steps!


3. The Final Moment

When attaching the glass shade onto the cord, remove (J) the shade ring from (I) the threaded socket. When doing so, it is important to only grip (G) the glass strain relief on the top of (H) the socket cover, not the socket cover itself. Hold this strain relief when re-attaching the shade ring to hang glass and when removing glass to clean. Finally, insert your bulb and flip the switch!
