Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great garage light The light itself is great. Nice color and brighter than the twin T8 tube light it replaced. I expect these lights will work well when it gets cold as opposed to the tube lights which would never quite turn on. Installation was a bit of a pain. One of the two lights I bought didn't work (just flashed). I exchanged the bad one with a working one. The installation is done in two parts. First you attach a plastic plate to the junction box; then connect wires; then the fixture snaps onto clips on the plate. The first step would be easy if the correct screws were supplied. The instructions call for a #6-32 x 1.5" screw to connect to the junction box. The included screws were the wrong size and length. My junction box (and new ones at Home Depot) require a #8-32 x 1.5" or 1.25", not a #6. Connecting the wires is easy, although having a second person to hold the fixture makes it much easier. The final step where you snap the fixture onto the mounting plate can be a bit of a challenge. Sometimes it would not click into place because the fixture body would stop at the ceiling before the "click". I found that sliding a flat piece of metal, in my case a metal drawer divider, behind the plate clips made it easier to snap the fixture in place. Just slide out the plate after you hear the click.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for the garage I installed two of these in my garage and they work well. Low power consumption, silent, and instant on. The mounting base is a bit light duty but once on the wall hasn't been an issue. November 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lights I'm pretty happy with my new lights, but I haven't compared them to any other linear LED systems. I'll be buying more for my other garage bay once the CFL's go out. I just wish they weren't so expensive. November 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great light. This is a great light. It was a little hard to install behind a valance because of the clearances. August 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lights The lights look great and give off excellent light for my garage. Only suggestion would be to lengthen the wires to make the connection easier. The wires are too short to rest the fixture on the top of the ladder while connecting them to the power source in the box. Also the mounting clips are difficult to release if you need to take the light down. October 21, 2014
