Home Replacing a Very Old Style Ceiling Electrical Junction Box in 2019 OldPancakeHanging-600x450-IMG_3094-Copyright


The finished replacement of an old style pancake ceiling electrical box. Now it is ready for a standard light fixture installation.

I was able to get behind the old style pancake electrical box with a long screwdriver to pry out the cable staples. That gave me some extra slack to work with on these brittle conductors.
