My wiring coming out of the electrical box are white, black and green. How do I connect the light fixture that only has black and white? Is there another way to connect the ground (green) wire to the fixture? There also is not a green screw. Thanks for the assistance.


  • Does the fixture have exposed metal parts, and does it have a "square-within-a-square" marking near its UL mark? – ThreePhaseEel Apr 5 '15 at 2:55
  • yes, most of it is exposed with the exception of the clear plastic light cover. I don't remember seeing a UL mark. Have to check for it in the morning – Rick Apr 5 '15 at 4:04
  • Mind taking a photo of the top of the fixture, and of the label/markings on it, and posting it here, too? – ThreePhaseEel Apr 5 '15 at 4:32
