DIY Wire FAQ
Can I wire fixtures from Color Cord Company on my own?
Color Cord Company is proud to encourage the DIY community to get hands-on with our products. While we offer tons of instructional videos, demonstrations, and advice, we always recommend that you consult with a professional before getting started. Once you’ve talked to an electrician, you can browse our blog for ideas and assistance. From installing a plug-in sconce to understanding tinning, we’re here to help.
What tools do I need for DIY wiring?
You’ll typically need electrical tape and wire strippers for most DIY wiring projects. You should also have a drill, level, screwdriver, and hammer on hand for hanging or installing any new light fixtures to be safe. Most of the other components, including wire nuts, screws, and mounting plates, come with whatever product you’re buying.
We rarely include bulbs, shades, hooks, or cages, so if you need any of these swag accessories for your installation, add them to your cart now.
What do the different wiring colors mean?
Most Color Cord Company wiring projects and products deal with white, black, and green. Every time you have to strip the fabric off a wire, you’ll see the different color codes we’re talking about. Each one has a different meaning:
- Green: Indicates the Grounding of the Circuit
- White/Grey: Indicates a Neutral Wire
- Black: Used for Power in All Circuits
- Red: Indicates Secondary live Wires in a 220-Volt Circuit
- Yellow/Blue: Used to Carry Power (Not For Common Plug-In Devices)
