Hi Bob,
I have purchased a new home and the lighting is horrid! I would like to replace the bathroom fixtures (two separate units over the master sinks) with track lighting. Problem is, the 4' long track light I have is corded with a plug. Can I somehow hard wire this track light- actually wire it to one of the existing overhead fixtures, without burning down my house? These two existing overhead light fixtures are connected to a switch at the door and would like to be able to turn on the new track lights using this switch if possible. To fish wires through walls would be nearly impossible since there are three angled walls between the switch and these existing lights! So far, I have replaced several lights, taken out a ceiling fan, and re-wired several outlets to switches so am not all that inexperienced with electricity.
Thank you!
Sue

If you have 2 ceiling lights then I will assume that there are 2 junction boxes also.
Since you are using a 4ft track you will probably only need one.
You could cut power cord and hard wire in junction box with wire nuts.If the track light has an ac adapter on it , then you will need to plug in
Hope this was helpful
