I want to mount a chandelier canopy like this one to the ceiling.
You'll notice the hole on the left and the hole on the right.
The way this assumingly is supposed to work is that you have the bracket which is screwed to the electrical box as shown:
And once that bracket is screwed to the electrical box, you take the screws that came with the canopy and hang them down through the slots as follows:
Then I assumed that you push the canopy up to the bracket, with the screws that are pointing down going through the two holes on the canopy:
and as seen from the other side:
And then finally you screw these nice little trim pieces - little caps - onto the screw ends to finish it off.
The problem is that in any bracket the screws that hang down into the holes in the canopy are free floating in the slots. So when I press the canopy onto the screws and try to screw on the caps there is nothing to hold the screws in place and I can never get the caps on.
I must be doing this wrong?
