Customer Questions & Answers

Will this product support a ceiling fan?

Asked by: Iopelco
Yes I believe it will. As long as the fan is less than 50 lbs. I used it for a pretty weighty crystal pendant and it is very stable.

How do you get the side screws to screw into a metal can?

Asked by: Dale
It comes with self-tapping screws. It takes some effort but with my drill and patience, they secured nicely.

Do I need to use the metal cover plate and medallion?

If my can is small enough to be covered by the new light fixture's cover plate, do I need to use the metal cover and medallion that comes with the kit? I'm concerned that the medallion will be "too much" given how close the fixtures are to each other.
Asked by: SMYinNH
Yes, if you don't, you're likely to see a gap around the light fixture once you install it as the diameter of most pendants is much smaller than can lights.

Medallion Diameter?

What is the diameter of the medallion? My lighting coverplate is only 4 inches diameter and if the medallion is too big, I'm wondering if it will look odd.
Asked by: mel
The medallion is big enough to cover the hole that your 6" canned recessed light is installed in. The hole in the center of the medallion is small enough to be covered by a 4" canopy. See the photo of my installation to see if that helps you visualize it.

Recessed Light Converter for Pendant or Light Fixtures is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 134.

The pigtail problem was not their fault; I had failed to make contact with the outside sheathing of the low-voltage pendants. I had never installed low-voltage lighting before and bought these as demos from a lighting store in town. Totally my fault; ignorance can negate many skills. I would highly recommend this product. The people who had trouble with the self-tapping screws just weren't pushing hard enough. You could also drill a small pilot hole if you forgot to eat your Wheaties.

Works great... only thing i recommend is pre- drilling the holes into the existing recessed light can (the self tapping screws provided were not really self tapping.. and did not work well) . Otherwise the product works perfectly for what its designed for.

I will tell you if your existing recessed lighting can is a double sleeve type or a fairly thick metal the self piercing screws are a real pain to use. Do yourself a favor and get a short tex screw with a drill head. I guarantee you the guy on the ladder in the installation video installed his self piercing screw in a pre-drilled hole. You could pre-drill the holes too. If the product came with two self piercing screws and two drill head screws I'd give it 5 out of 5 stars.

We used it in conjunction with a small pendant over our kitchen sink. I had a little difficulty getting the brace attached to the side of the can, but once I got past that, it was a piece of cake. I do wish that the kit could be customized with a choice of medallion finish, such as satin nickel or oil rubbed bronze. It would look a lot nicer if it was finish coordinated at the ceiling, and I would have paid extra to be able to do that. Otherwise, I am happy with the installation.

We used this product to replace the can lights in our home with track lights and had good results. A helpful trick is to use a small piece of duct tape to hold the heat shield in place while assembling other parts.

No problems installing, except make sure the bottom of recess can is flush with drywall. Otherwise its harder to install the metal plate.

While it makes sense in concept, I spent over an hour installing and reinstalling this converter before returning it. The bar does not mount far enough up into the can, even with the zip screws that attach it to the can. The ears of the mounting bar hang down below the rim of the existing can just enough to make the plastic trim ring not flush with the ceiling. This is largely because the metal plate rests directly on the ears, and the plastic trim ring sits directly on the ring with no bell shape on the trim to allow it to cover the metal ring and draw it up to the ceiling. Just an amazingly dumb design of the plastic trim piece.

Overall the product worked out well, easy to install, but from the description on the box you would not know that you need to drill holes in the recessed housing to install the bracket. The biggest disappointment was that the outer molding trim ring did not accommodate the O.D. of the pendent base so that it would not sit flush within the molding ring. Fortunately the trim ring of the recessed fixture was able to be reused in its place and it looks ok, but lost the architectural appeal of the molding. This also precluded the us of the metal plate.
