Hi guys,

I’m planning on setting up a 150-180 Peninsula (either Red Sea 650 or Red Box 6025). I don’t want a canopy, so I was thinking of mounting them from the ceiling. But it seems that however ways I’m thinking, the wiring is going to look wonky trying to route it down.

So I was wondering if any of you ever route your wiring to the ceiling? And if so, any pictures for inspiration? Or is it just a dumb idea, lol?

Thanks,

Josh

In the electrical isle at the hardware store they should have some screw down cord holders. Cheap like .49c a piece or something.
Ive seen ppl screw a board to the cieling and moint their lights to that.
I would bend conduit pipe as needed and use it. Hths
Ive got links on pipe bending if u need em.
