3  ATTACH MOUNTING RING: Push Mounting Ring into opening until flange sits against ceiling (Figure B) making sure 
“J-Box” Slot is in a position that will ensure enough space above ceiling for the “J-Box” to sit flat against ceiling (see 
step 4).  Slide mounting straps down to trap ceiling thickness, then bend up to secure (Figure C). 

ATTACH J-BOX: Insert J-Box Mounting Strap between the ceiling material and the Mounting Ring and through the “J-
