Works as advertised!
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.

Pros: Works as advertised, Parts are well made

Cons: Directions poorly written, Medallion is cheap, Not easy to install, A bit pricey

Perfect - would use again and again.
Needed to adapt a chandelier to a can fixture. Works and looks great.

Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Install

Best Uses: Decoration, Small Rooms

Might Work -- Might Not
This is a great product idea, but depending on the can light style you are trying to convert, may not work.

Pros: Great Idea

Cons: Not Universal, Flimsy Construction, Hard To Install
January 27, 2010
didn't work for me, but good idea.
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.

Pros: Improves Functionality

Cons: Hard To Install
