Track lighting I already have old track lighting in place, so I'm thinking it won't be too complicated. This was just starting to fall apart and it looks outdated. So I want to replace it. The very important first thing to do is a flick. Your breaker switch off first remove the individual lights called track heads then the old track, or whatever base you had before unscrewed the little orange caps called twist on connectors or wire nuts and untwist the old wires to disconnect the lighting now get the new base and connect the wires in the same way, the black wire is known as the hot wire is twisted with the red wire use pliers to twist securely then screw on the wire nut.
The white wire is called the neutral wire which matches with the other white wire, it's easier to remember, which wires to connect. If you take a picture of the old wiring with your phone before you remove it and the green wires, the ground wire, which matches with the copper water measure and mark where you will need to drill this is a toggle bolt which requires a big hole to Be drilled into the ceiling to fit the rings through connect the wiring to the track by sliding in the base and twisting at 90 degrees until it locks into place screw on the toggle bolt halfway and then test one light before continuing again.
It just slides in and twist 90 degrees, but make sure that internal wiring connects correctly to the electrified track, tighten up the screws and put the cover plate on to put the halogen light bulb in use a suction cup tool to pop it in and twist is the point of track lighting is that you can move the lights around and aim it wherever you want.
