It consists of a cylindrical metal (non-brass) housing with an interior lamp-holder and an exterior electrical junction box. There is an electrical cable that runs from the housing to the junction box (J-box). This J-box contains a thermal-overload protective device, as well as push-in wire connectors; this J-box, which is listed for through-branch circuit wiring, also has five ½-inch knockouts and four Romex knockouts with strain clamps. Further, this light fixture incorporates bar hangers, with pre-installed captive nails, that allow the housing to be positioned at any point within a 24-inch joist span. It is noted that certain styles within this light fixture model incorporate adjustable socket-bracket plates for proper positioning of different types of lamps (light bulbs).

The applicable subheading for this ceiling light fixture will be 9405.10.60, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Lamps and lighting fittingsnot elsewhere specified or includedChandeliers and other electric ceiling or wall lighting fittingsOf base metal: Other than of brass.
