Wiring a powercord
    #489445 - 10/19/10 02:13 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

So, I have this fixture in my bedroom. I don't use it anymore, and I'd like to use it during the winter time for some of the plants I normally leave on a windowsill (it gets too chilly for them to stay there, so they don't get any direct light).

My problem is, its directly wired into this here box thing. There isn't a normal "plug". I have plenty of old power adapters, but I'm not quite sure which one would be safe to splice onto this?

I have lots of heavy-duty extension cords as well as power cords for PCs no longer in use. Are these appropriate for splicing on?

Does the same apply to a HPS/MH light that was hard-wired into one of these "boxes"?

Thanks.

I'm not going to be doing this any time soon. If theres no safe way to do it, I just won't.

And I'm not sure what it is. Its a box that has 1 cord going from the light-switch and the other going into my ballast thing there.

Its not a "plug". Its just wires held together with those plastic thingys.

Fuck, I don't know. :lol: I can go buy one for like $20 but this isn't being used, so I figured why not.
