JIMIK
SQUARE INSIDE A SQUARE. IS SYMBOL FOR CLASS 2 PRODUCT
DOUBLE INSULATED PRODUCT
CONNECT UP ALL YOUR EARTH WIRES AND PUT INTO A TERMINAL
BLOCK, TAPE UP. NO EARTH CONNECTION REQUIRED TO FITTING.
BEFORE DISMANTLEING CURRENT LIGHT YOUR RED WILL GO
TO BROWN OF TERMINAL BLOCK IN NEW FITTING, AND BLACK
WILL GO 2 BLUE TERMINAL OF NEW FITTING.
KEEP TO RECOMMENDED LAMP WATTAGE OF FITTING , STATED
ON IT.
