The part in the photo has two connectors to handle two different types of connections to the lights. Only after getting home and installing everything under my cabinets and fussing with it for mor than an hour did I realize that the item I got, with the same sku, has only one connector which doesn’t happen to be compatible with the lights that were sitting directly next to this item on the shelf. I get it that mistakes happen but you have complaints about this going back at least 6 months. Fix it so you don’t screw up the afternoon for another customer. For me, my family is now at a festival while I head back to the store to resolve this problem.

Hello Valued Customer, thank you for your review. We apologize that our product did not meet and exceed your expectations. We always value customer feedback and ways to help improve future experiences with our products. We do have a couple of different versions of direct wire boxes. We had an older version that worked with our older fixtures, and then we released a newer version to match with our low profile fixtures. If you need help determining which direct wire box that you need, one of our lighting experts would be more than happy to help you.

If you would like to continue this discussion, please give us a call between the hours of 7 AM – 8 PM Central Standard Time, Monday thru Friday at 1-800-654-8483, press option 4, and provide our Consumer Care Team with your personal ticket number 600172.

I didn’t realize that the converter box was sold separately. Having to find a store that had them in stock delayed the installation. I don’t think it was clearly stated “not included”. 4 stars because of the inconvenience.

I needed this to hard-wire plug-in linkable lights. It was very easy to do the wiring, and the converter box has two types of connectors for different kinds of linkable lights. It's not really clear to me why this box is actually necessary, as it seems the splicing could be done in a conventional wall junction box, but this is a low-profile unit that fits under cabinets and is well-hidden by the facing of the cabinet.
