I'm one to read over instructions and follow them... Most of the time. However, I run into the occasional one that defies logic.
Case in point:
Step 1 says to hang the strap first, sans fixture. (Not the way I'd do it...)
Later, step 9 has one weaving it together...
(I'd do this before I'd hang the strap)
Then later still, in step 12, one gets to twist the thing together, hopefully on an AFCI circuit. This fixture's chain is larger than the canopy hole (7/8") and the screw collar.
(I would make the chain small enough (or canopy hole and screw collar large enough) to get the canopy out of the way and fasten the strap on last
(Am I just missing something again?)
Did I bust code by hanging it up my own way?
(I used a shorty screwdriver, put the strap on last, and lots of cursing ensued...)
What would you do?
