It's now broken. I bought this product several years ago. Wish me luck finding the receipt to collect on the warranty. I don't exactly remember why this was a pain to install but it took a long time. So here's the problem, several years down the line. You need to change bulbs or wish to clean the shade? Those ball nuts won't unscrew. Corrosion sets in and you will have to grip both the ball nuts and the support stem. The 3 decorative ball nuts that attach to the 3 support stems to hold the glass shade in place are round. Of course the support stems are round too (tubular is more accurate) so you will need 2 pairs of pliers to undo. Have fun getting a good grip on either the stem or the nut. I first sprayed a little grease into the threads of the support stem and gave it an hour for gravity to move the grease into ball nut threads. Then I came with 2 pairs of pliers and the support stem snapped right where the threads meet the ball nut. I barely applied any pressure. Poor materials + poor design = don't buy this. No more Hampton Bay products for me, I have experienced this sort frustration with several of their products over the years and have had enough of wasting my time and energy on these lousy products.

Beautiful lamp, well packaged in the box and complete. It is difficult to assemble, as the globe is suspended by three cables. Seems a bit precarious when perched on a ladder attaching the tiny round nuts to the ends of the cables while holding the globe, but it went together well, and looks very nice in the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyWoman Great Entry Light!!!
Great light for my entry. Nice looking. The only problem was that to change the light bulb, one of the little nuts that you have to remove to get to the bulbs dropped and was lost! Then, the glass shade was removed until the nut could be found and that got broken. Nice thing is, I went to Home Depot and got a whole new light and just used the glass shade and the nuts-- and it was a good price to be able to buy an extra just for parts!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Reviewer Nice looking; glass is a bit thin
This fixture is nice looking and has a quality fit and finish. However, the glass shade is somewhat transparent, which means that you can see the bulbs from behind the glass, even when the fixture is turned off.
The fixture wires are a bit thin, which means that using them with much thicker household wiring and twist connectors is a bit challenging. The thin fixture wires in combination with the household wiring aren't thick enough to really securely hold the twist connectors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sarahscotland Great hallway light!
We bought three of these lights to install in our hallway (both downstairs and upstairs). They look great and give off a lot of light! So pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kitten Beautiful and subtle
We bought two of these to replace existing ceiling lights in 8-foot ceilings, and my husband installed both by himself and had no problems wiring into existing openings. They were packaged well and were received in perfect condition. They are very attractive and should blend well in a variety of settings.

This should have taken no time at all to install. But it did. Once it is up it looks great. I put it in my bedroom closet and for the first time since I moved in 3 years ago I can find what I'm looking for. I replaced a dinky fluorescent fixture that took forever to fire up and gave off a grayish light.
For the price the fixture is worth it as it looks more expensive than it is.
