Ceiling light fixtures

While traveling through Wyoming and Colorado we hit some rough patches of freeway. When we landed and entered our 8529IKBS we found the kitchen light fixture had come out of the ceiling. It is clear that simply using screws into the ceiling and insulation is not enough. Click image for larger version

Hello, my in-laws had a similar problem with their ac cover inside on the ceiling. I found some plastic mollies that worked with the screws, and glued them into the ceiling holes with Goop clear glue. I let the glue set up for a day then reattached the cover. It's been two years with no problems. Hope this helps.

Just what I am planning to do. Had not thought about the glue though. Thanks.

You are not alone. I have the same fixtures and needed to secure them with more than just the screws.
