These do require patience installing, but the finished project is definitely worth it. The only thing I wish is that Home Depot sold different widths. I do prefer the hinged end caps (sold seperately), because it makes vacuuming dog fur out of the corners much easier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lance Exactly what I needed
The baseboard cover in my apartment's bathroom was an eyesore. It was installed poorly decades ago, and it suffered the abuse of decades of renters. It bothered me every day - whenever I was sitting there on the throne I had to look at this ugly dented thing. And so I developed the mission to replace it.
I needed a cover that was 6.8 feet in length, due to details of the room's design that I won't get into here. Of course, these covers don't come in weird lengths, and so I opted for the 8 foot model (the "venti", in SB-speak). With the tender love of some good sheet metal snips, I cut the new cover down to the size I needed. I managed to detach the old cover and cleaned up the underlying element.
I carefully installed this truncated beauty against the wall and screwed it in place, making sure I didn't bend or twist it. Sharp tools and sheet metal can easily scratch, and so I used cardboard and painters tape to ensure that everything stayed "like new".
Properly snapping on the front cover and the damper is possible, and necessary for a quality appearance. Just take your time and don't bend or scratch anything. As long as you don't distort anything, it should look and remain fabulous.
With the addition of matching 2-inch endcaps (again, carefully installed), my new cover is radiant (pun!), and I now enjoy my work every time I sit down in said room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kwpainting They worked.....?
Pre-ordered about 100' of various sizes to replace the existing covers on a customer's job. They worked fine, the only problem was that I had to return about 60 feet of them since they were dented or damaged. They are not a true white more of a commercial grade dull white. If it wasn't for having to return 60' and get new ones from various HD's to finish my job, they worked perfect. Would buy again but pick my own boxes out. Aggravating when your trying to complete a job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Easy to install with the right tools
This baseboard enclosure is very easy to install and with the new connector piece the installation looks much cleaner. It used to be three separate pieces, but now its one complete piece that snaps on over the top. Ensure that you have the right tools to cut the metal to go around pipes and to cut to length if it is not the right size. Tip: if you have two sizes for a run, cut the longer one vice the shorter one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tiger Overpriced
It is a very good product. However I feel that since there is a monopoly on this product it is highly overpriced. Mind you it is a great product, no doubt on it. But it should retail for much less.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fletch Installed over 2 years ago. Still looks brand new.
I've used these to replace old existing radiator covers. It can be tricky to get the support pieces into place with an existing radiator, so I had to trim one flange off the support piece. But the results were good and they've been looking great for the last several years. Will be getting some more new ones on another project I'm working on.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rikardoavocado Hard to install over old fins and end caps too short at the front
After taking out the old cover and backing piece I found it hard to install the new enclosure. The enamel scratches really easily, and if you use the hinged end caps you can still see the pipes, which isn't a great look. I'm going to try ordering the non hinged 2" wide end caps which look like they are the same height at the front and back. The hinged caps are shorter at the front.
