Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by s1odell Really love these track lights
We put 3 of these lights up in the basement, they look great and give out tons of light. It does take 2 people to put them up, but the ability to shape and get light where you need it is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by inthemidwest Easy install; great way to increase light
Once the base is wired, the rest of the installation is quite easy-- basically, if you know how to put a screw into your ceiling, this will go up easy. Additionally, the ability to move the heads at any time to a different place on the track makes the task of getting light where you need light very easy. Connecting two tracks together was also a breeze. We used these to replace the contractor-grade flush mount lights in our large basement family room. The amount of light in the room now is great, and we haven't even maxed out the capacity of the fixture yet.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by litchjim This is not "brushed steel"! It is silver colored plastic!
Silver plastic is not brushed steel as the rail is described on line.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michael A good track
The track for this system is very easy to install and you can have fun with it. The owner wanted to have their letter J as the line so it was easy to do.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Inverted360 Additional track = consistent light throughout kitchen!
I bought this to add some additional coverage to my kitchen lighting. Using that "coupler" that is available on homedepot.com I combined with my original length of track for a total of 18ft. Using GU10 LED lights I get great coverage of the kitchen at only 27 watts total!

I went with this light track because the power box was off center to the usable space in my room. This track allowed me to place the lighting in the middle of the room so it fit over a table or island.
The instructions are pretty good, but leave a little detail out for some who have never done these types of things before. So, here are some things to do/think about.
First, it is really important to shape the track on the floor. I used a few piece of duct tape to hold it in place. The duct tape was placed where I thought the stanchions should be. I reshaped it a few times until I found the shape I needed to move the lights from the off-centered power connector to the middle of the room. This step seemed to help the track be more pliable when you're ready to lift it into place.
Leave the track on the floor while you connect the power canopy and put up the stanchions. When putting up the power canopy, make sure it is placed in the same way that you have the track laid out in regard to the metal connectors on the track. There are two connections on one side and one on the other. It doesn't matter which way you do it, just make sure it is the same. I then measured where to drill holes by measuring "down and over" from the last stanchion starting with the power connector (ex: down 8" over 10", etc.) and measured each one this way from the last. I found this easier than trying to measure diagonally, so just a thought. Use the toggle bolts if hanging from a drywall ceiling and don't forget to place BOTH the stanchion AND the decorative ring on the bolt before pushing the toggle into the ceiling.
Once the stanchions are all placed into the ceiling, get an extra pair of hands to help you lift the track into place. Another reviewer mentioned using zip ties to secure the track to all of the stanchions before making all of the permanent connections. BEST ADVICE EVER! Doing this we had the track up in a minute or less and your "extra pair of hands" can go back to whatever they were doing. While suspended on the zip ties, the track can easily be moved and adjusted as necessary. Connect each stanchion, cut the zip ties off the track and start hanging your light fixtures!
On another note, the pendants I bought came with about 7 feet of cord. When I went to cut the cords and rewire them I had trouble stripping the insulation off the tiny inner wires. I called and took them into my Home Depot store where they cut and rewired them for me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zana1428 lovely, but a bit tricky to install
We bought this flex track to go with the Hampton Bay120-Volt Antique Bronze Flexible Track Head with Glass Shade (sold separately, of course). They look fantastic together. The instructions are a bit lacking on how to cut the track and install, but we eventually figured it out. We bought the GU-10 LED bulbs to replace the halogens, and put it on a dimmer switch. Looks great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Twoofus Looks good once up.
Came out of the box rolled up. Took 3 people to hold it without kinks while being installed. Once up looks great and is very easy to add lights to or move them around.
