Rated 1 out of 5Â by pkon Chain is the weak link
With a regular pull, the metal chain actually broke inside of the unit. I took the unit apart and saw that it broke within about 5 "balls" of the end--far short of the "edge" where it comes out of the fixture, where you'd think the chain would break.
I know, $3, what do you expect? But there's the time that goes into going to the store, buying the new part, figuring out which breaker the closet light is on (since the chain broke in the off position), uninstalling the old part, etc. etc. etc. I'd just hate to see someone end up paying an electrician $100 to fix a $3 fixture that broke because a 5c part that should have been a 7c part.
Or perhaps this is good for the economy, and what is considered "stimulus" these days?
Anyhow, would prefer a light with a strong made of a strong nylon (?) or something that won't suddenly snap like the "metal" chain.
This lasted about 16 months for us, of light use.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Steve Breaks every six months
I don't understand how so many reviewers can call this product well made. My wife breaks this fixture one or twice a year. The cord jams, then the fixture needs to be replaced. We're looking for a reliable alternative.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by tangojohn Really poor quality
Piece of junk. have replaced twice in the past 6 months. Looking for a different brand. pull chain comes completely out with minimal pull. No more.
I would rather pay more for something of quality. This is made in China.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Mikey Leviton pull chain lamp holder ---poor quality
This Leviton pull chain lamp holder will last 1-2 years. This is in a residential app only used a few times a day. Unless you pull it out and not down the mechanism is not smooth and will eventually bust.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mhes Good basic fixture
The wire connectors were difficult to use. I did get the fixture connected but probably not the way it was intended.
