I bought four of them for my attic. It can be installed in two ways. If your lamp holder has a collar (indentation), you just need to tighten the bottom of the cage around the collar. Very simple. Mines (Leviton's cheapest lamp holder at HD) didn't have a collar and I needed to attach adaptors (included) first using the two mounting screws in the lamp holder. This process was very awkward. In some of them, I tried to attach the adaptors to the cages first and then mounted the whole things to the lamp holders, which I found was slightly less awkward. It took more than an hour to finish all four.
Now, the real bummer came at the very end, when I put back a light bulb and closed the cage. There was a latch to secure the cage in place and it snapped (attached picture). To be fair, this happened only one of the four and the attic was very cold and the temperature probably played a role. Nevertheless, I wish it was made from a more robust material. If it didn't break, I would have given four stars.

Leviton sincerely regrets your dissatisfaction. Please send your shipping information to Ebusiness@leviton.com and we will promptly send you a replacement.
This Leviton plastic replacement guard is a cheap piece of plastic. Other than the screws, it's plastic. The threads that you screw the screws into are plastic... They stripped because it wouldn't get tight enough... so the guard won't stay on. So I glued it shut. The latch on the guard is plastic and won't stay shut. Half the guard is always hanging down in my face or hitting me on the head. The plastic tabs that hold the guard to the light fixture won't stay clicked into the fixture slots. The short of it is save your money and get a guard that's better constructed.
I saw these bulb covers used in a DIY chandelier and decided to use them to modernize my old lamps. They fit well on my existing lightbulb bases to create a fun, contemporary set of industrial-style light fixtures.

This guard broke within 48 hours of installation when accidentally hit by a tennis ball. I would not recommend this product. Very cheaply made.

Most of the poor reviews are by people who don't follow directions.
If you install the adapters first, as instructed, the rest of the installation is easy. This cover provides a latch which makes it easy to replace a bulb if necessary. really nice design.

The pre-drilled holes in the mounting bracket are too small, and I could not tighten the bulb guard. The bracket screws are also poor quality as the heads strip too easily. I could have drilled out the holes myself and used different screws, but I shouldn't have to fuss over an item like this right out of the package. Did not install.
