I need to replace the cover on one of the two lights in my kitchen. First before you buy what looks like a standard size ( the only one my store had on hand) measure and measure again. My light bulbs are 48 inches long, a pretty standard length, this is only 46.24 inches. The opening maybe smaller than your bulb, but mine was still larger than this piece. Before I saw that I had already cut the width to size, so I couldn’t return it. I made it work, but using a bit of the cut off piece to finish it up, looks like heck. I turned on the light and while it looks nice and white, when I turned on the light, it was yellow. If some of this was not my fault for not double checking, it would of got a lower rating.
These are too small for my 2' X 4' lights. There seems to be a lot of confusion with this product. Someone should look into clarifying what this lens is designed for since it will not fit the typical 2' X 4' lights.

This was cracked by the time I made it home I looked it over in the store not even a scratch when I got home it had a 6 inch crack going across it dont know how or why but not very durable. I hot glued it though so it will serve its purpose.
I am only providing this review to help those who have broken brand new lenses while trying to cut or fit into existing fixture/grid.
Best way is with a table saw, fine tooth blade (80), INSTALL THE BLADE BACKWARDS IN THE SAW, feed acrylic lens from front of saw as normal. Use light pressure, go slow and don't let it wonder off the cut line.
I have needed to cut these many times over the years and they are getting cheaper, thinner and more brittle. Don't bother with the xacto knife, laminate shears, belt sander, etc.
