Among the various lamps, LED surface mounted downlight has become the first choice for many consumers because of its simplicity and convenience in maintenance. It not only has an illuminating effect but has certain adornment effect. However, most people are unclear about how to install it. So the installation is usually done by the professional. Today, OBALS will show you how to install it by yourself.

The Characteristic of LED Surface Mounted Downlight

The surface mounted downlight is a kind of lighting fixture which can absorb the light on the ceiling. The LED surface mounted downlight belongs to directional floodlight, and only its opposite side can receive light. Its beam angle belongs to condensed light, which is more concentrated and bright. It mainly highlights the subject and creates a quiet atmosphere.

Installation Procedure

Preparation for Installation

What should do above all is to check whether the specification model of LED surface mounted downlight accords with design requirement, and the quality certificate is ready. Secondly, check whether the parts are complete, whether the surface is damaged, and whether the lamp line meets the requirements.

Before installing LED surface mounted downlight, we first need to prepare the installation tools, such as the electric drill, wire strippers, Phillips screwdrivers, expansion screws, etc. The purpose of the electric drill is to facilitate drilling in the ceiling.

Remove the Cover

We have to put the light cover down firstly. In general, the LED surface mounted downlight has two fixing methods: rotating and clamping. It should be noticed to distinguish the two types before removing it to avoid damaging the mounted downlight. After removing the cover, you’d better remove the light bulb to avoid breaking during installation.


First, select the appropriate power cord length according to the actual situation, remove the excess length and peel off the front end cord. You should also distinguish the phase line and zero lines. The spring piece should connect the phase line and screw-socket should connect to the null line, which must not be confused. You need to insert the reserved wire into the wire hole of the base and use one hand to hold the base of the downlight and fix it where it needs to be installed. Then, use a screwdriver to screw one of the screws into the downlight. Be careful not to screw it too tightly, so that it can be moved when the position is not accurate. When all the remaining screws are screwed, connect the power cord to the downlight lug. Finally, install the light bulb and light cover.
