Those poxy dome nuts. First time I put one up, dropped one onto gravel below. Couldn't find it :mad: Now put sheet underneath :)

Round here, its mostly reconstructed stone, so no flat surface to fit the light, and the bolts pop out the back :mad: Fit some duct tape across the back to stop em :)

Somewhat against my better judgement, I fitted one of these last week:

https://www.screwfix.com/p/sasha-3-light-spotlight-white-220-240v/2489v

To my surprise, it was actually quite good, as cheap fittings go.
my main plus point is that the base is easily wide enough to cover most holes previously made in the ceiling. I was able to utilise one existing screw hole, make one more, and it all connected up easily. Not top drawer for looks, but actually a winner for me in the circumstances.

To be a lighting designer needs a sadistic tendency. Valued talents include sourcing microscopic junction boxes and screws in teeny ready to throw-away bags. After all, bell-wire fits inside most connectors adequately. Experience of the real world a disadvantage.
