Old junction box in ceiling - how to install a new ceilling fixture
Eyal

I was trying to install a new ceiling fixture but the junction box under looks old and has a pipe sticking in the middle of it (i would guess old gas pipe).

What would i need to install the fixture ?

I have old boxes like that but the pipe has thread around it that allow you to use a conversion kit, unfortunatly not this one :(

Eyal,

That is not a gas pipe, that box does have a fixture hanger on it. You need to remove it, or just use the hanger to hang a new fixture. This is a chandelier hanger.
