Answer: 
NO. If you install ceiling fan using this device the rotational torque from the ceiling fan will eventually cause the unit to fail, and the ceiling fan will land on your head.

Answer: 
Maybe--it depends on the new light that you install. If it has a standard bell, the bell will be at an angle, and the chain will hang from it.

Answer: 
This gets installed in an existing recessed lighting fixture. This screws into the existing light fixture so therefore no access would be needed.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice adapters for updating can lights Used these to update can lights to pendants (Commercial Electric1-Light Rustic Iron Mini Pendant). At first I did not like the trim rings, but they grow on you. There was a metal ring included that I did not use. The trim rings fit flush without them. The instructions did not explain why/when they are needed. April 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked like a charm Needed to convert two canister recessed lights into pendents. The installation video was very helpful and easier to follow than the directions. Now my wife is happy so I am happy. May 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic product Great product to update to a new look from a can fixture to a beautiful hanging fixture July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple solutions to problems are ellegent, this qualifies. This product is fantastic. Only one negative - driving the attaching screws into the recessed housing requires drilling both the exterior skin as well as the interior metal before it is possible to drive the screws. This is not a major problem, it just would be nice to know it before starting. The U Tube demonstration, made by Westinghouse, shows the "self starting screws" installed without pre- drilling.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My electrician loved this!!! I had called my electrician to replace my recessed lights by putting in an electrical box. I picked these up, mostly for the medallion. When I showed it to him he was really excited and insisted on using them. They came out awesome!!! The only issue was screwing in the cross bar. The video shows a can that is aluminum so the screw went in easily. My cans were steel and it took a little more effort to screw them in. Pre drilling a hole would help. As it turned out, I didn't use the medallion that came with it. Instead I purchased the 10". It looks much better. The one that comes with it is deeper and hid the beauty of the canopy. My lights were not even and he was able to center them by sliding the bracket to one side and now they are perfect. I'm not sure if my neck would have allowed me to put it up myself. February 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing Product. Great product simple to install. Definiely have to pre-sill the mounting screws. Easy enougt. July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So much better and so easy! When we bought our house the foyer had a recessed eyeball bulb light. I figured it would be a major rewire, new junction box, etc to put in a pretty chandelier. I was quite excited when I saw this product in the store. It only took my husband a few minutes to change it out and now our foyer looks so much better. I would highly recommend this product. February 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A little tricky, but an easy fix We bought a house that had recessed lighting in all the rooms. This made the rooms look like they were ready for slam poetry. The key to this kit is to find the right drill bit to get through the sides of the recessed fixture. Besides that, it was a simple install. The lighting looks great and we will probably purchase additional kits to replace the other fixtures. December 29, 2015
