Still a little tricky
By DIY Diva Verified Purchaser from Corona, CA on 3/19/2012
Pros:
Improves Functionality
Cons:
Hard To Install
Best Uses:
Primary Light Source

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Works as advertised!
By New DIYer from Irvine, CA on 8/16/2011
Pros:
Works as advertised, Parts are well made
Cons:
Not easy to install, Directions poorly written, Medallion is cheap, A bit pricey
Describe Yourself:
Midrange Shopper
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
