Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sfun71 Convenient - but poor quality -- worked for 6 can lights
This is good way to install drywall over can lights in new construction. BUT... the quality is not great. The magnetic head broke off one of the posts before I made it through 6 can lights. They're convenient to use - just not robust. Certainly not for the pro user.

Excellent little tool for recessed lighting hole locating. Simple to use and dummy-proof. I use a Roto-zip, but occasionally get off the mark when I run into a joist or other obstacle. With this tool, you know where your cut should be. Only improvement would be to include a compass and/or a center hole in the locator (you can drill your own). You screw the inside piece into the light socket - it slides up or down to contact the drywall. The outside piece snaps right into place once you get close to where the fixture is. Then you use a compass or template to mark the cutout. Very easy and extremely accurate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TimC Well worth the money, makes the job easier
I had to sheet rock a 20x30' ceiling all by myself with the help of a lift. I had 11 recessed lights to cut out. This really made my life easier, and it was worth buying them for this single job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cody makes it simple
This product worked excellent. I found it worked best if you cut the center out first so you can see the side of the fixture and then just work your way around you will end up with perfect holes everytime. Loved it.
