I had LP install can converter and light for a modest feeImages/Videos shared by: Bort
The idea behind this is good, but it is still tricky to install. It's hard to describe in writing, but the way the instructions say to do it, you wouldn't have any room to hook up your wiring so you have to adapt a bit. It was frustrating, but it worked in the end.
Be prepared to improvise.... use parts provided plus some extra screws etc.
The can converter was the perfect solution to my dilemma of how to secure a pendant lighting structure to my current recessed can lighting fixture. The parts were all well made except for the cheap beveled plastic medallion (which is unfortunately the only part that shows). The directions aren't well written / illustrated, and installation took quite a while and required some improvisation for my pendant light to attach. All in all, a good product, although I think it is a bit overpriced for what is essentially just some fitted bracket hardware.
Did what it is supposed to do.
i couldn't use this because my bucket light wasn't the right kind, i think because i live in a condo with cement ceilings. it seemed like a nice idea, but wasn't able to do it myself. if you had the right kind of bucket light, i'm sure it would be fine.
We plan to turn our can lights above our kitchen island into pendants with this conversion kit !
This was a fairly easy piece to install, the difficulty was in getting the old can light out.
This is a great product idea, but depending on the can light style you are trying to convert, may not work.
I would not use this for a ceiling fan ever. I managed to make it work for a small flush mount ceiling light. I couldn't figure it out, and ended up using the pieces in the kit to make something that worked. Probably not up to code though. Pro: They give you a lot of pieces to improvise with. Con: There's got to be a better way.
Nice to have available for install. Very difficult otherwise.
easy to install and stylish
Needed to adapt a chandelier to a can fixture. Works and looks great.
