Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by breynold2 you get what you pay for... cheap
This Leviton plastic replacement guard is a cheap piece of plastic. Other than the screws, it's plastic. The threads that you screw the screws into are plastic... They stripped because it wouldn't get tight enough... so the guard won't stay on. So I glued it shut. The latch on the guard is plastic and won't stay shut. Half the guard is always hanging down in my face or hitting me on the head. The plastic tabs that hold the guard to the light fixture won't stay clicked into the fixture slots. The short of it is save your money and get a guard that's better constructed.

I saw these bulb covers used in a DIY chandelier and decided to use them to modernize my old lamps. They fit well on my existing lightbulb bases to create a fun, contemporary set of industrial-style light fixtures.

I asked for a an inexpensive fixture or guard that would protect the bare bulbs in the attic and the floor person showed me these. I was not impressed, but I bought 3 because it was all they had. Hard to imagine what this would guard against - maybe from paper resting on the bulb - that is if you can get it to stay in place. Any small amount of force and it bends or pops open. Not useful for anything really. I find my general shopping experience at Home Depot has gradually deteriorated in the past couple of years. I prefer to shop elsewhere.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SteveD Worst Leviton prodict I ever bought
I discovered too late that this bulb guard is not compatible with a Leviton porcelain lamp holder with pullchain, model 29816. The mounting tabs are just too short for this standard pullchain lamp holder which you would think it should work with. It fits non-pullchain shallow porcelain bases only. In addition, the mounting tabs (adapters) are hard to assemble on to the flimsy guard grille. Instructions should say mount these onto the grille, then mount the tabs to the fixture rather than mounting the tabs to the fixture then mount grille to the tabs. The locking latch is flimsy and doesn't stay put. The mounting tabs mount under the porcelain base screws, making the mounting of the porcelain base to the outlet box less solid. All around a bad design, cheaply made, and incompatible with Leveton's own pullchain porcelain lamp holder.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BedfordRider Nice idea, but . . .
Good idea. Even thought the plastic is flimsy it should do the job. However, once I installed them, they refused to stay fastened so now half the guard will open and hang. I'll need to tape it or something to keep it closed. I would recommend it with the reservation that if you expect to bump in to it very much, find an other guard - either a rigid plastic or metal one. Way overpriced for what you get - should be less than $1 each for their poor quality.

Installed on garage fixture, put in bulb, closed, clip that holds unit closed broke on first try. Useless junk.
