Shop Light to Light Socket

Iíve linked two LED shop lights and are currently plugged into the wall (classic three prong plug). But, I have a light socket mounted to the ceiling of my garage.

Iíve tried a three prong to two prong to light socket approach but the lights donít turn on.

Why? What am I doing wrong?

First thing I would check is if there is power.

Wall plugs are usually always powered, ceiling lights are usually connected to a switch!

Start by installing a normal light bulb and see it turns on.
