does not stand up to use
I installed this work box for a wall light. When I came back to install the light fixture onto the work box, the box was loose and I find one of the nail flanges had broken off. Lucky for me the back side of the wall had not been taped yet so I didn’t have to demo the drywall. I purchased a new box and the nail flange broke again. Surely they understand the nail is going to be hammered into place. I screwed directly through the inside of the box into the stud to secure it. I installed the wall light and 5 months later I see the fixture hanging at a odd angle. On inspection I find both the box screw mounts have broken off. I have never had this issue with plastic outlet boxes before. I would not use this manufacture’s product if this is the material quality to be expected.

        Beautiful
        I love these lights and i would recommend them to anyone if you want just a dim light or a bright light you will be satisfied with both. I can say enough. There. Is one thing though and that is that one of the bulbs went out way too soon

            Simple, basic, easy to install. And no, there's no place for a grounding screw because plastic is not a very good conductor of electricity.
