How do you put a plug in a swag light? Drill a hole into the area where you found the joists or strapping that’s just a little longer than the length of the insert. Thread the insert into the swag hook using the non-pointed end. Twist the insert into the drilled hole until the base of the hook is pressed tightly to the wall or ceiling.
Can you turn any light into a swag light? To convert a pendant lamp to a swag lamp, you will have to remove the light fixture from its original location, determine the new swag location and finally, lengthen the chain and lamp cord. The first step is to loosen the canopy nut and drop the pendant light or chandelier’s canopy to reveal the electrical wiring.
