No, the Westinghouse recessed light converter cannot be used without the included medium base socket pigtail. This kit is designed for use with a 4-6 inch recessed can with a medium base socket.

If the new chandelier's cap is large enough or fits the application, the white piece can be omitted. I took my new light to Home Depot and got a sample size container of paint to match the top of my new light. Then I painted (brushed) the white piece to match the new light. Worked well.

What can you do if your light fixture has screws on side?

Usually the screws on the side screw into A u shaped piece of metal that is attached to the J Box. Simply take off the U-shaped metal piece from the J Box and attach this in place of that U-shaped metal piece.

You’ll need to connect the wires in the new fixture directly to the wiring for the old lamp. You won’t use the socket piece.

I removed a similar fixture and installed this so that I could switch to a pendant light. It worked just fine. The key is the can size and those are similar. There is also a bit of forgiveness and flexibility in the sizing so the change should go smoothly.

Without seeing the recessed can and the converter it’s hard to say for certain as it was installed in our Florida home and we are still in Michigan. I’d say a qualified “yes” but save your receipt as it will be pretty obvious when you can hold the converter up to the can.

No. It is designed to support a pendant light in an existing recessed light canister. You would need to by an expandable bracket with recessed box designed to expand and attach to the ceiling joists. Home Depot sells these boxes and brackets in a kit.

The converter kit worked well. We were able to install three pendant fixtures in the recessed light locations. Very difficult to install the converter brackets above our kitchen island.

Installation was easy and it totally transformed the old can light over the sink in our kitchen to a fun pendant light. I absolutely love it and definitely recommend.

Kit worked great and was easy to install. The hardest part was maneuvering on a ladder over the kitchen sink! We spray painted the trim collar to match the fixture and it gives the kitchen more character now than the old boring can fixture.

This kit included everything needed to convert the recessed light to a hanging light. One additional step was drilling holes in the can to mount the bracket as the can was double walled and screw would not self tap. Looks great and saved me from needing an electrician to perform the conversion!

I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 for only one reason, I wish there was a cover plate that would accommodate a rectangular chandelier cover (or another Westinghouse product). Other than that the product was easy to install and looks great.

Fantastic idea for adding pendant lighting. No rewiring required. Will be purchasing more kits in the near future. So easy to install.
by Moesmom
Its great but
So I would give this a 5 star but there is no holes in my canned lighting like described in the videos. You have to create a hole but hammering a nail to the metal can. I also had to use a drill bit for metal. After that installation is easy. It took me longer creating holes to make this thing work. I wish it is adjustable to match with the current holes like the can converter which is around $50. But overall Im happy and Ill buy it again since I know techniques now.

Converter was easy to install and wiring was simple. Would recommend to anyone wishing to convert a recessed light can to a flush mounted fixture. Did not need to use the cheesy plastic ring though. It looks cheap.
