A wall lamp mounting plate is a handy little fixture that makes it easy to install plug-in sconces. It has a simple and clean design that will look good in any room.
It’s the best way to make sure that your sconces are properly mounted, and will give you peace of mind knowing that they are safely secured to the wall. You can choose to use the supplied screws or you can purchase additional anchors for drywall walls.
The best part is that it doesn’t cost much to install! You’ll need the wall lamp mounting plate, a set of hook and loop adhesive strips (such as Command), and some scissors.
How to Use the Mounting Plate
The first step is to mark the base location for your sconce on the wall. You’ll need a level to ensure that the mounting plate is sitting correctly.
Using a pencil, draw a line on the wall just under where you want to attach the mounting plate. Then, hold the plate up to see if it is level. If it isn’t, you may have to turn slightly until it is.
Next, peel back the protective strips to expose the adhesive. Once it is exposed, press two hook and loop strips together.
Trim the tops of the two strips to align them with the mounting plate. Then, adhere them to the wall and set a timer for 5 minutes.
One of the most important steps in mounting a light is to connect the sconce’s wires to the appropriate wiring connections on the new fixture. These will be the black and white wires that are connected to the sconce’s switch, along with the grounding wire.
If you’re not sure how to do this, contact a professional electrician for advice. They’ll know how to make sure the sconces are wired correctly and will also be able to provide you with the necessary tools.
