New Leviton Pull-String Fixture

New Leviton Pull-String Fixture

Click to view full size image

Here's a new Leviton pull-string fixture that I installed in my grandmother's closet to replace the old fixture with a broken string. I admit, I broke the string as a young child (I've enjoyed playing with lights from the very beginning!) Aside from the stiff wires, this was an easy install today, about 20 years later. The old fixture was high quality porcelain and the new one I put in is plastic. Fortunately, the LED bulb I put in won't cause any problems for the plastic due to its low heat.

They still sell these in porcelain. I always go for porcelain over plastic. If the light fixture catches fire, porcelain doesn't melt and burn.

I collect exit signs, preferably vintage ones.

I also have a little bit of a thing for light bulbs, too. Of course, hoarding them due to the incandescent bulb ban.

I actually put one of these in one of my friends storage room along with a f40 RS shop light (of course!) But I used my 1/4in impact screw gun which I use on everything now a days but I slightly overtighten it and it cracked in 3 peices . Screwdriver I'd suggest.

Yeah never use a drill to install any fixture, it's not needed. Hand tighten only.

I don't care for these Leviton ones, the pull chains don't work well at all in my experience. I prefer the ones from Pass and Seymour, and the GE ones at Walmart which have the smoothest operation in my experience. (Not to say you didn't do a good job installing it, I just don't like how the Leviton fixtures don't click very well.)
