Hello. I tried searching the forums but could not find any tips on how to install pool table lights. New to the game and just bought my first table. Specifically wondering how to connect the lights to the ceiling, without standing on the table (or is that ok?). Thanks for the help.

(A) Don't stand on the table, especially if you or someone else has a lard ass and packing some poundage. Get two ladders on each side of the table and buy a strong piece of lumber at Home Depot to build a scaffold and sit or stand on that.

(B) Get an electrician

(C) Disassemble the table...put up the light...reassemble the table perfectly under the light.

Personally, I'd go with A & B. I went with B and didn't do A...he was a lard ass standing on the table and it caused a bump in the slate connection. Fortunately, I just reshimmed it and didn't have to take it apart, but that might not necessarily always be the case. There are websites that tell you how high up off the table your lights should be to maximize effectiveness.
