Convert plug-in fixture to hardwire? Okay?
My wife bought a simple one-bulb light fixture that has a 2-prong plug at the end of the cable (designed to be plugged into a wall receptacle.) I'd like to install this fixture into an existing hardwired (wire nuts, box) location in my house.
Is this okay to do? Can I just cut off the plug and strip the existing 2 wires? Or do I need to do something to convert the fixture to a hardwire-compatible model?
If I can just hook it up, the fixture has 2 wires, which is white / black, and what do I do with the ground coming out of the box?
Thank you for any advice!
