Just place it on the edge of the electrical box, then use a brad nail gun. Of course, fix a plate riser before the padding. It takes 10 nails to fix firmly on walls or on ceilings. And, to install one plate, it only takes a few seconds. So, it’s worth your time, go and check them out.
Finish the fabric installation. Snip the fabric and bring electrical wires out. Attach the fabric to the inner edge of the plate. Connect to the light fixture. Then, screw the light backplate to the compensation plate. But let the electricain do the wiring.
