Different lights have different methods of mounting so check your instructions carefully. In this case it is simple cross by these screws on the junction box. Once the crossbar has been attached screw the nipple into the center hall. Connect the wires by twisting the expose ends, black to black, white to white and the two ground wires which would be either green or copper. Twist an orange wire knot onto the end of each and top the wire up into the junction box. Slide the fixture canopy over the nipple and against the wall. Screw the cup knot onto the nipple and hand tightly.
