Hanging Chandelier - Incorrect Mount

We are exchanging an existing chandelier with a new fixture obtained from Restore. The existing light is attached to a mount, with a screw/pin that is about 1/4" in diameter. The new light appears to require a screw/pin that is about 1" in diameter (so that the ceiling pendant/medallion can be fixed in place with the included ring that is 1" in diameter).

I do not know the proper terminology to locate the part online, nor know if there is a better solution altogether.

Thanks for any help.

So this is used and is missing parts? Pictures of the box and light might help us help you. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...rt-images.html

Ah, ok. So, with comments and some thought, and some assistance looking for missing pieces from my seven year old, I (she) found the piece that was so crucial. It was attached to the mounting bracket that came with the lamp and hiding in the packed glass bowls that the bulbs sit in. It was unfortunately bent all to whack. So, after reconstructing a flat mounting bracket, we managed to get everything into order and installed.

The piece that was missing is the chunk of metal that, in this case, screws into the electrical box mounting bracket and is what the ceiling medallion ring screws onto, as well as what the hanging chain connects to.

It would be helpful for the future to know what that piece is called, if it has a name.

Thanks all!

That poor chunk of bent and twisted metal is called a fixture bar.

It needs to be strong enough to support the weight of your chandelier without bending.

Fixture bar. Thanks!

It is actually strong enough, but when the light was removed, or some where along the line, it was bent badly. We bought it from Restore, so who knows.. It's back to flat now, however, and fully installed and beautiful!
