Billiard light installation?

2352 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  ezoffshore

I need some help on determining what kind of wiring to buy to hang my light. The light as it stands now has a 6 ft. cord (male-end) which is designed to be plugged into a ceiling receptable.

I plan to remove an existing light fixture in the ceiling to connect my billiard light into. The ceiling in this room is 20ft tall so I will need to extend the cord coming from the light.


1.) Is it possible to build my own extension cable out of lamp cord? ie. female plug on one end and bare wire on the other to hard-wire to ceiling?

2.) What parts would I need? Im concerned about ground as all lamp cords I've seen are just hot & nuetral.
