My flex tunnel had a severe bend in it and the light barely fit--I'm banking on the light not getting too hot but I'll update if it does. The instructions don't explain how to fasten the legs to the base of the tunnel, but it can be figured out (hint: what are those 3 screws for? what are those holes for?). The extra tape comes in handy for rips, try to save some for emergencies. The tricky thing for a DIYer like myself is wiring--if you're confident enough to do that safely, the rest is not bad.

Love it. almost invisable during the day and lights up the room at night. I put a 800 lumens led in it. very happy with the light.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Otep Not much for the money
It is a non standard light socket with three wires to hold it in position and a length of conduit. A connection box is not provided. The instructions indicate a fluorescent light should be used but I'm using an led replacement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RLO Eliminates the need for a separate light
Was a bit worried that this unit would be visible, through the light panel, during the day, but was pleasantly surprised to see that it is not. Since the light panel in the skylight is translucent, and since the skylight tube is highly reflective, the light kit insert ends up getting lost in the reflections. This is a great idea to maximize space. My only complaint is that the receptacle is not set-up for a standard screw-in bulb.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joanne Such a great improvement over the older version of sky tunnels, to have a light when the daylight has gone away.
The appearance of having a sky tunnel with light kit is so great. It can be installed in the spot where the existing light is and uses the switch from the existing overhead light. What a great addition to the sky tunnels of yesteryear.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stuball Works great
I replaced a ceiling light with a flexible tube sun tunnel (Velux TMF) so I was glad to see Velux offered a light option. Overall, the product is great but the install was a bit of a pain. For starters, you WILL need two people; one to be in the attic to hold the hardware in place, one to be below to screw on the nut.
Secondly, the washers that come with the kit are a little too thick leaving little thread to screw on the nut; it took us several tries to get it on right.
Additionally, if you have aggressive bends in your sun tunnel, just be aware that this thing needs a good amount of clearance to fit; I don't remember the exact height, but it was around 10-14".
Lastly, I feel there should be better support for flexible tube installations as it really does a number on the mylar-like material the tunnel is made of; have a extra foil tape on hand for patching.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3rivers Love the natural light
I purchased to provide light to a bathroom with no windows. The instructions are fairly easy to follow. I took my time as it was my first time putting one of these in. Love the light it provides to the room. I even purchased the light kit after I installed the tunnel and it had no effect on the natural light. Going to purchase another one for another bathroom.
