    Hi All,

    Anyone know what is the tensile or pullout strength of a #8-32 screw used to
    secure fixtures to overhead outlet boxes? There are two screws holding the
    bracket to the outlet box. Is this size safe, or do I need #10-32? Is
    there a table of tensile strengths of screws available on the web?

    Thanx,
    Keybored
