How to Install Drop Ceiling Lights
To install the lights all that you need is measuring tape, a drywall saw, wire nuts, and lights, along with electrical wires. Before proceeding, make sure that all the mains are off and there is no electricity flowing through the house.
Most drop ceilings are just fitted into place without the need for nuts and bolts, so you shouldn't have any problem lifting the respective tile panel that you want the drop ceiling lighting fixture fitted into. Before you lift the panel, measure and mark the location of the lights while the panel is still in place.
Place the housing of the drop ceiling light onto the ceiling tile and draw a boundary line touching the base of the housing to get the accurate size of the hole. Align the lighting as per the other lights so that it doesn't look out of place. Then cut out the hole with the drywall. Be careful if the opening is large, the fixture may not fit properly.
Install the light housing into the hole and fix it with the clips that are a part of the lights, or, with the help of brackets. To make this step easier, slide open an adjacent tile so that after you fix the drop ceiling panel and light into place, you have the space to attach the connection to a nearby electrical socket, or make adjustments if need be.
Try to get as much information as you can on the wiring, because you don't want to be tripping the circuits, or for that matter endangering yourself.
