Retrofitting a Florescent Shop Light With LED Tubes
In this video, Andrew shows you how to cut the ballast out of an old Florescent tube shop light and replace it with an LED tube. Note: these instructions do no work for fixtures with a shunted or Instant Start (IS) Ballast.
My father in law gave me an old Florescent fixture for my shop. I hate florescent lighting, so I decided to upgrade it to LED.
Wire snips or a pair of needle nose pliers are handy for cutting the wires on the ballast.
voila! The fixture is working!
Once the fixture was working, I installed it in my shop.
