HO asked me to swag her chandelier to a spot midway between ceiling joists.
I estimate chandelier weight at 12 pounds.
35 year old house. Assuming 1/2″ drywall and joists on 24″ centers (there is no floor above, just a flat roof), how much weight can a 3/8″ toggle bolt bear?
If not a toggle bolt, what is the best way to hang a chandelier on a swag hook between ceiling joists?
