You can ground your LED light frame with the green wire, just wrap it on the metal casing.

And if ceiling it act as safety wire incase whole light fall down

No. Just dont connect the green wire (earth).

Trim the copper off the green wire and wrap it with an electrical tape.

Led lights usually only need neutral (blue) and live wire.

Sorry. I did not look at the picture. I thought the LED has 3 wires blush.gif

Why you need to cut it. Why not just leave it there in case you need it in future?

I think that is not dark red but Brown wire for L

So, Black to Blue (LED), Blue to Brown (LED)
