Hi all,

Need some suggestions.

I've been given a kitchen light, similar to this - http://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/230926047954-0-1/s-l1000.jpg

Trouble is there's no fixing plate, any ideas how I could fix to the ceiling?

Apart from superglue :sad:

Thanks

You'll need to search out one of these in the right size (or get a wrong sized one, cut it in half and fit each bit in the relevant location):

Alternatively a couple of blocks of wood screwed to the ceiling and then a couple of small domed screws into the side to hold the lamp in should be a workable bodge.
