Wow! Our customers sometimes ask whether they can convert their plug-in wall-mounted makeup mirror to a hardwired mirror. The answer is "Yes, but..."
- If not done properly according to electrical codes and with proper grounding, the conversion can result in a dangerous condition, exposing the user to painful and possibly deadly electrical shock.
- The warranty is voided.
- There is not usually room in the base of a plug-in mirror, for the required electrical connections necessary for hard-wiring.
- Hardwired mirrors have bases with mounting holes designed to align with standard electrical boxes. Plug-in mirrors usually lack similarly aligned mounting holes, adding complication to the conversion.
Our recommendation: Don't do it.
