I am trying to hook up a new flush mount LED light fixture in my basement. The existing metal box has the ground wire screwed into it, so there is only a loose white and black wire. The light fixture has a green ground wire. There is no bracket for the metal outlet box and one is not required with the light fixture I'm putting in.

So what do I attach the light fixture ground wire to?

  • Can you post a photo looking into the back of the box please? Nov 22, 2021 at 5:28
  • Not the actual picture of my metal outlet box, but same idea. Feeder ground is hooked around screw in metal outlet.
