  1. Switch all power off at the mains.
  2. Remove the fluorescent tube from the body of the fitting by rotating the tube and prizing the pins out at either end.
  3. Unscrew the base of the fluorescent fitting from the ceiling.
  4. Disconnect the wiring from the mains to the fitting. Once this has been completed you will be able to remove the fitting completely and put to one side.
  5. Now the old fluorescent light has been removed you can now fix the LED Batten into place.
  6. Firstly mark out where the batten is going to be fixed and drill holes at either end where the fixings are going to be placed.
  7. Once the fixings are into position simply wire the batten to the mains using a junction box and clip the base of the batten to the fixings so the batten is mounted flush to the ceiling.

And that's it. This is how simple it is to replace a costly, old light fitting and replace with an energy efficient light that will start saving you money instantly.
