6. This fitting is height adjustable at point of installation only. No attempt must be made to adjust the height once it has been attached to the ceiling. If adjustment is required at a later date the fitting must be isolated from the mains and removed from the ceiling first. Using two pairs of pliers carefully open the chain links and remove the required number of links. Close the links.

Note: Cloth should be used between the jaws of the pliers to protect the decorative finish. Pull any excess cable through the ceiling cup.

IMPORTANT ensure the chain is supporting the weight of the fitting and not the electrical cable.
