Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bDoug A Challenging Light
Putting up this three light chandelier was a challenge that I enjoyed, and I learned some things in the process. I was replacing six existing hanging lights in a great room with a cathedral ceiling, and I had to use a ten foot step ladder to reach the wiring. The first thing I learned was that I needed a means of supporting the light close to its electrical box with slack in the chain and wires so I could complete the attachment and connections before actually hanging the light. I made a little frame of sticks that I clamped to the step ladder to do this. It looks like a painter's tray without the center. Instead of holding a paint can it cradles the three arms of the light.
This light uses 1/8" IPS steel nipples to connect the central upright parts and to connect the hanging loop to the cross bar. There is a locking nut on the upper nipple that is used to keep the nipple from rotating once the cross bar is screwed into place. But the hanging loop is still free to twist around at the bottom of the nipple. So I had to use an additional lock nut to hold it where I wanted it. This is touchy because it has to protrude just the right amount from the electrical box for the threaded ring to hold the canopy tight against the ceiling. You can buy the lock nuts in a little packet.
It takes some trial and error to get everything positioned correctly. Since I was installing more than one light, I jotted down notes and that kept me from having to solve the same problems again.
I used two pairs of needle nose vise grips to twist open chain links. I cushioned the jaws with thick mounting tape. I was surprised how many times I had to open the chain because I had forgotten to put something in the right order. Once the light is hung, if the chain is kinked it is because the wire is too short. Once you adjust the wire to be just slightly longer than the chain, the chain will take up the suspension load and hang correctly. I didn't cut the wire at all. I coiled up the extra with twist ties and tucked it under the canopy.
Three 60 watt bulbs give a lot of light. I am pleased with the appearance and the illumination of this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by karenmcf Lovely light fixture for a reasonable price.
I was looking for a pendant light fixture for a relatively small space, to be installed over what is used as my home library table. I needed the light to shine upward rather than down, which would have created an unwanted glare. This fixture perfectly filled the bill. The brushed nickel gives it a rather vintage look, perfect for its library setting. The fixture itself needed to be assembled prior to installation, but came together well and installation was pretty easy. The hardest part was adjusting the length of the chain because the links were very strong, another evidence of quality construction. All of this for under $100! Perfect.

Really enjoying the look of this light fixture over my dining table and I've gotten several compliments. Installing it wasn't as easy as it should have been, however. The screws inside didn't line up right. We were able to use some shims to line things up and in the end it worked.
