Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MNHomDep Switch wears out very quickly, buy another brand
I've used two of these in a situation where the pull-chain switch is used a dozen or more times daily. The switch stopped working after a year at most for both of them. I took one apart, and it's clear that the pivot's brass on brass contacts had simply worn out by that level of use. I won't buy a Leviton pull-chain switch again--I gave them a chance and both failed miserably.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dc8fyer Perfect solution for closet and garage
I bought two of these lights. One for a dark closet and another to replace a similar light in the garage that did not have a plug.
I installed one in a closet that had no light at all. I fished and tied the light into the power line to the door bell located in the closet. I ran the light switch cord across the top of the closet and then down the opposite wall using a couple of eye hooks and finished it off with a baseball pull chain. I used a couple of rubber washers and inserted them into the eye hooks to keep the sound of the metal pull chain from making so much noise.
In all it works great and the closet finally has a light. The pull chain works great but I just have to remember not to try and flipp for a swich and instead pull the chain.
In the garage the plug on the light allowed me to run some (Southwire 50 ft. 14-2 Romex White NM-B with Gauge) around the ceiling and walls so I could install a (Legrand 4 USB/3-Outlet Charging Station) over my work bench.
I covered the wiring from the Ceiling light with (Wiremold/Legrand 12 ft. Cordmate II Kit, White) for a nice look. The molding has adhesive on the back but I used (Loctite PL Premium 10 fl. oz. Polyurethane Construction Adhesive) to make sure it stayed in place.

Don't waste your money on this product. I've had three of them. The first one lasted 6 months, the second one 3 months and the third one barely a month. I'm going back to Home Depot today to get it replaced. I have porcelain lamp holders that have been in my home for more than 30 years and they still work. This product, however, is junk. The only good thing about it is that Home Depot has dutifully replaced all of the defective products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYJoshua Ease of Install
I purchased two of these fixtures. One was replacement of one that had broken; the second was a new install over our water softeners and water storage tanks. The new install was very quick and the light works flawlessly. I also appreciate the extra outlet. That will make it easy to plug in tools or extra lighting when things need to be worked on.
Great light, and great functional design.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jmonkey quit yanking on the pull chain
Replaced one in my hallway closet that has lasted almost 40 years. Pull chain issues no problem as long as you don't yank on it. It's not a yank chain it's a pull chain so use it correctly and you should not have a problem

I recommend opening box and checking the integrity of the porcelain base before purchasing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by homeowner Pullchain breaks easily
We have bought two of these in last six months. Each time the thin metal pull chain broke. there is no way to replace the chain without cracking the plastic circuit piece. Save your money.
