        This worked out just great for adding a lamp to my workshop desk area. The size fit into the wall just right without trouble. I made a simple template from the box circle and just scribed it a little smaller to fit the rim. It keeps the connections isolated and holds the lamp steady with the built in clamps that screw tight.

        Will Fail
        It’s incredibly poor quality and will practically disintegrate over time. Do not waste time and money buying from this company, as you will have to replace it far earlier than you anticipate.

          Works great: 2 recommendations
          Worked great for sconces. I have 2 recommendations to users: #1 don't drill the 3x 1/2" holes 120 degrees apart, as the template describes. I did this for the first light and the 1/2" holes were very close to being visible around the base of my sconce. For the next 3 I cut the 4" hole with a hole saw, only, and didn't cut the 3x 1/2" holes. The old work box fit just fine (it was snug, but I actually preferred this). Recommendation #2: Tighten and loosen the 'ear-screws' once PRIOR to installation. Reason - the threads in the plastic ears are not pre-cut. I had issues with the ears/screws becoming cocked in a strange position behind the wall and would not tighten. This was because the screws were trying to cut the threads for the first time. If you pre tighten the screws (and then loosen them to the original position) before installation, it will make tightening and installing once in place very easy. I can tell you from experience that it is very frustrating having to remove the box from the wall because 1 ear became snagged/cocked and won't tighten. Once I learned from the first box and corrected the issues, the last 3 boxes were a breeze!

          Great to add light weight lighting to existing structure!
          I purchased three of these to hang some light weight simple pendant lights above our dining table. These are made for old construction. These normally come with a paper template shoved inside the box but this time there were none so I went on Carlon website and downloaded the template. I know I could get by without but I like the fact the template has points where you drill a 1/2" hole in 3 areas prior to cutting to compensate the extra space needed for the wings. It also ensures you don't end up with a larger hole than needed. After hole is cut you slide it up in place and with a philips screwdriver to tighten all 3 screws so the wings tighten to your substrate.

          I have used these throughout my whole house when installing pot lights inside and outside when installing wall lights. Using these instead of new work boxes gives one the ability to place them wherever you want without a ceiling joist or wall stud being in the way. The depth for electrical wire connections is also a benefit without the need to ground the box like you would have to do with a metal box.

          Just what I needed for a new ceiling light fixture. Fits fine if you drill the right size hole.
