- An instrumentality affixed to the ceiling or wall of a building, through which insulated wires carrying electricity are run and to which bulbs for illumination are fastened. The authorities are conflicting as to whether gas and electric light fixtures retain their quality of personal property when put into place in buildings. Some of the authorities consider that such attachments are fixtures in the true sense of the term, but the greater number of authorities hold that they should not so be considered. 35 Am J2d Fixt § 127.
