YOU MAY HAVE HEARD OF PLUG-IN DOWNLIGHTS

They come with a plug and cable just like an appliance you plug into your wall socket, but the difference is they get plugged into sockets in your ceiling space.

HOW ABOUT PLUG-IN PENDANTS?

Plug-in pendants are hard to find, but they can be useful for certain spaces. Plug-in pendants typically come with a very long cable that you plug into the wall, then with hooks, brackets and other things you string them up the wall and onto the ceiling. This could look cool over a reading chair, and in certain spaces, but could you see this working for kitchen hanging lights? Over the kitchen bench? How about in a bathroom? Probably not.

The Melbourne designed Snap Lighting system combines the best of plug-in downlights and plug-in pendant lights into one product. The Snap Lighting Universal Socket installs just like a plug-in downlight. It comes with a cable and 3-pin plug and it simply plugs into outlets in your ceiling. Once the Universal Socket is installed, you can simply push in any downlight or pendant light from our range! It can’t get any easier than that. No messy cables around the place, it just looks like a normal pendant light or downlight you can install yourself in about 5 seconds.

Another feature that makes the Snap Lighting innovation stand apart from the rest is -

YOU CAN ADJUST PENDANT LIGHT LENGTH.

The Snap Lighting pendant connector has a cable spool built in. Simply wind the pendant cable around the spool until you get the desired pendant length, and push into the Snap Lighting Universal Socket. No tools needed, no electricians needed, and no messy cables around the place.

If you have ever wanted to adjust pendant light length to get the perfect height, it’s really not easy without Snap Lighting!

Typically on hard-wired pendants, there is a screw in the canopy (ceiling cover) that holds the cable. While up a ladder, you can loosen it with a screwdriver, then try to push or pull the cable through the hole to adjust the pendant's light length. It can be very tricky if the cable is flexible and hard to push through. It can also get caught on things in the ceiling space you can’t see. You can climb into your ceiling space to move it more easily- but that is unsafe, dirty, and generally unpleasant!

If that doesn't work, or the canopy design doesn’t allow for length adjustment, your only remaining option is to coil the cable and tie it with something like cable-ties. It’s a messy look and even if done neatly it’s not appealing.

So the best way to adjust the pendant light length is to install the Melbourne lighting innovation - Snap Lighting.

With Snap Lighting, you don’t need any tools or cable ties at all. And you certainly don’t need to climb into your dirty, dangerous, ceiling space. You simply push-out your fitting from the Snap Lighting Universal Socket, coil or uncoil to adjust the pendant light length, then push back into the Snap Lighting socket. Done! So quick and easy!
