I know this will sound like a dumb question, but I honestly don't know. I need to remove the lights from my front porch in order to paint them. This will take a couple days to prime/paint/dry before they are done. I don't want to leave the power to that circuit off for several days! I also don't want to have to replace the fixture between coats of paint. What is the solution?
Thanks for any help!
Once you get the fixtures off, either use electrical tape to cover both of the wires (hot and ground) and keep them seperated, or you can find twist on caps at the hardware store, this will be sufficient until the fixtures are painted. This will also allow you to turn the breaker back on until you put the fixtures back on.
