Rated 4 out of 5Â by jpwilk Installation a pain
Looks simple enough but, as with other reviewers, I found the threaded bolts for screwing on the little ball nuts are too long so the fascia is loose. Had to cut down the bolts. The bolts are Phillips head with the heads on the backside of the plate with a nut and lock washer on the front. Make sure that they are as tight as possible (mine were loose) otherwise you'll be taking everything apart again when you find you can't tighten the ball nuts.
The wall plate is designed assuming you have an outlet box installed. It has hole patterns in the middle that would presumably match up with the box (2 screws are provided to attach it). Unfortunately, my older house just had wires coming out of a hole in the drywall. The wall plate has two holes towards each end of the wall plate and two wall anchors and screws are provided but it really needs to be anchored in the middle also, whether to the outlet box or by using more anchors and screws (as in my case), otherwise the weight will flex the wall plate.
Looks very nice once it's up.
I'll be saving some money on electric as the old frosted fixture I had took 6 bulbs and this gives more light with just 3.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Jon411 NOT TOO HAPPY with Hampton Bay
We bought and returned this product twice for our Jack and Jill vanities- 4 light bars total. Each bath bar we bought had a different flaw in design or parts issue that prevented the installation. For example, mounting screws too long, a mounting screw finishing decorative nut missing, mounting wall plate flange irregular size creating an unusual gap between the cover and mounting wall plate. The ease of installation is poor because we were unable to finish a complete mounting due to missing parts and design flaws.
I thought Hampton Bay represented quality, I guess not. We are sorry to say, we will not buy Hampton Bay products in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by SteveFromBoston MOUNTING BOLTS TOO LONG!!!! ....Otherwise decent unit. :)
Nice enough unit...Appears a bit more chrome than brushed nickel though...My fault for not looking closer when I was at the store though (it was up high). THE MOUNTING BOLTS ARE TOO LONG. I had to cut about 1/8" off the bolts for me to be able to screw the bolts on...If you don't do this, the unit is a floppy mess. Easy enough fix, but really??? Get it right! I'm not the 1st reviewer with this report. Anyhow, price was decent, relatively easy to mount, and looks nice enough.
