Hi Everyone , I decided to make a quick disconnect for my MHL. Due that everytime I had to remove my canopy i had to remove wiring nuts from my light to take it off.

So to get started I turned to power off the lights. Grab the wires with the wiring nuts a seperated them. I grab one end of the wire and ran it thru one of the new plug.

Connect the rubber sleeve with the plug part tighten up the screws make sure to use a handheld screwdriver . Can possibly strip the screw.
