5 in. Brushed Nickel SkyBase Canopy Upgrade Kit for Chained Lighting is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.

This socket fixture mount is absolutely amazing and the chrome finish is superb quality, very shiny and quite bright. Not only does it simplify installation of those pesky chained fixtures, it makes it easier to swap them out for updating or even cleaning. The based installs just as the instructions state and cleans up the box reducing exposed electrical connection hazards (have a licensed electrician do the initial install if too complex or if your local codes dont allow homeowners to do these updates) It has a safe design with weight bearing locking mechanism much like what you see in your socket/ratchet with the button conveniently concealed in the chain loop. If you are uncomfortable with it still, I can say that I saw lots of GE stamps all over the product so you know that a quality manufacturer is on board. Check it our for yourself, if you dont like it, hassle free returns can solve that but I can assure you, your electrician is going to love these things as will you.

I typically get a ladder, and rest the fixture on top of it; as I do all the wiring with my hands above my head, while fighting with the chain and cord. This is so much easier. Wire the canopy (which weighs a few ounces) to the ceiling, then wire the fixture to the adapter, then plug them together (like a plug in an outlet). The canopy is made of good quality metal and is paintable. It looks great. Hopefully, these become a building standard, because their biggest benefit is being able to swap out fixtures. I do not see myself swapping fixtures, but the next home owner might. If everyone knows how to use them, they will be a great time saver. If not, it likely will take the next homeowner longer to figure out how they work, than save them time. They did put their web address on them (see pic). So, that should help with lost directions. I took off 1 Star, because the max weight is 35 pounds. Which is plenty for most fixtures, but seem low of many chandeliers.

Installation for a ceiling light or fan creating a new way of installation by Skybase. This product brings you a new concept in simpliest way either install a new light or switch a old one for a new one. The Skybase or skyplug basically they have two part of installation. One is the receptacle base for ceiling installation, another part is the part attach to your light connection. You will find their wonderful design is two main metal ring conductor which insert each together for electric power transfer to the light bulb. To lock the light to the base or relase of it. There you will find a small extension push rod screw to the base stem. When you push the extented stem , the enitrely small steel ball will lock the the light or remove the light. The metal cover is a nice dress up your ceiling without bulky look. Thinking of install a light and may change another one in the future. This may be your good choice. It save your time of wiring work.A

The lighting fixture is attached mechanically and electrically to a plug, which is done while standing on the floor. Then when it is ready, you climb up a ladder and simply push a button to hang the fixture. No more holding on to the fixture while balancing on a ladder, then trying to start one of those really long screws.

I made a lantern style light fixture in high school and I originally hung it with a chain from a vaulted ceiling. I moved and I could not bring myself to "bunch up" the leftover chain in a corner. So I removed the fixture and mounted it directly to this device. The initial installation was simple, the device is hearty and able to hold the weight of this 20 lb fixture, The picture instructions are simple enough for the non-technical person to understand. The color is neutral enough to blend with my black fixture, and the quick-release, bayonet release, is the best part! I can remove my fixture without having to have someone help me hold and wire/rewire! Such a great design!

It allows you to basically detach your chandelier or hanging light fixture when ever you need too, without having to totally disconnect the wiring with one hand while supporting the heavy fixture with your other. A simple pulling down of the connector will detach the fixture from the base which is the part hardwired and attached to your home. Then you can easily clean, repair the fixture or simply replace bulbs. Also makes it easy to take down a fixture to paint a ceiling so you don’t drip paint on it. I used this device to wire in a medium size glass dining room chandelier. No issue using it.

However, I found the instructions on wiring everything up to be a bit confusing. The illustrations in the instructions could be done much better. That said, even though the idea is cool; how often do people actually change out their chandelier?? I am guessing not very much unless maybe some special event place. So a pretty nifty cool idea, but also not really necessary..
