I just received the shipment from AHS , and the lights are great , the instruction seems to be easy , However , I don't understand what they mean in step #8 : "Ground the ballast by connecting the green/yellow power supply cord wire to the ballast case at a mounting hole in the ballast bracket by securing it under the head of a ballast mounting screw"

I see the power cord has 3 small cords in its , the brown/blue connected to black/white on the ballast. There is one green cord from the power cord which needs to be grounded. How exactly am i gonna do this cause ballast has only 2 cord white/black, and they already connected to brown/blue ? do i just need to screw the green cord to the ballast ? If i do so , how s about the electric shock if i accidentally touch them? :icon_neut
Please help

Yep, green wire gets attached just as tehy say. mount it to one of the ballasts mounting holes. By grounding the system you should have less chance of it shocking you as stray voltage will run to ground.

You guys are the best and thank you very much for helping me

I finally get the light set up , it is very very bright and I'm extremely pleased with the quality of the reflectors and bulbs.
