Additional Before & After Project Photos using The Can Converter

I replaced two can lights in the kitchen of our newly purchased manufactured home and installed pendant lights. I choose the can converter due to limited access overhead to replace the recessed can. The installation instructions and the online video were very helpful and I had no problems with the conversion. In fact I did two light conversions and have convinced my wife to do a third one in our foyer so I will be ordering another kit today.”

“Replaced light over the sink. We are slowly converting house into farm industrial look as we live in Colorado in the Mountains.”

Wanted to replace 2 of the lights over the kitchen island saw 2 nice shore lights that we liked. Didn’t know how we were going to mount them .the man at the store told me about the can converter so I got them, best thing going. Look at the video then the installation manual, the install was a breeze and the beveled medallions look great. “

“My daughter wanted a ceiling fan in her living room dining room area of her new home. Didn’t want to make new holes and run wires all over the ceiling and walls, so I found this delightful and very helpful kit called the Can Converter and converted one of her ceiling canned lights into a ceiling fan. Worked absolutely great and my daughter and her husband were delighted. Thanks for such a helpful product. Did the whole project with the can converter in a little over 2 hours. “

We had a recessed light in our foyer that didn’t give off much light so we found this unique light and decided to put it up.”

“Our home’s front entryway was empty and poorly lit, making it an unwelcoming space for anyone to enter our front door. Using The Can Converter, we were easily able to transform the space by adding a chandelier that matched our decor and provided much warmer and friendly lighting.”

“Updating the over-the-sink lighting. The can lighting just didn’t give me enough lighting and I wanted to incorporate some brushed brass. (The cabinet pulls are on order :). I feel old-world feel of these pendent lights are accentuated by the can trim. Thank you Can Converter for making my project effortless!”

Kelly W.

“Decided to add some elegance to our kitchen. The can light was nice, but the pendant light gave it that much needed finishing touch!.

We got tired of all the recessed lighting but still no interesting light in our kitchen. The can converter provided an easy solution to what could have been a difficult installation. We now have better looking & improved lighting thanks to your product.

Wife and I remodeled our master bathroom. It had standard contractor grade fixtures which included a terrible looking recess can over the tub. I held off on installing he new fixture because I did not want to do the work to remove the can. I stopped at Hill Lighting (Pompano Beach, Fl.) for a ceiling fan downrod and also asked them about the can removal and any brackets they may sell. That is when they told me I did not need it and showed me The Can Converter. The rest of lighting history.

“Replaced 3 kitchen can lighting fixtures with 3 LED pendant lighting fixtures. I used the “Can Converter” because of the optional ceiling plates which another brand did not have that option. I think as you can see, this new lighting enhanced our kitchen cooking area and the rest of the kitchen.”

“Updating the lighting fixtures in our kitchen… We found a beautiful trio of two pendant lights and a chandelier at our local Habitat Restore.

We were remodeling our half bathroom, it had an old 1980’s can light with a compact florescent bulb in it. We wanted to add a little extra “bling” to the bathroom with a pendant light.

I used to work in a lighting store that sells your product but never had the need for one until now. It was the perfect solution to our issue.

“After redecorating our bedroom we decided it was time for the old brass spot lights to go. The feather pendant lights required the fixture itself to be converted. Our lighting sales person (Cameron at Seattle Lighting – Bellevue Washington) recommended the R56 Can Converter. Despite being only a little handy with DIY projects, the Can Converter looked easy. Your video really helped me understand what I had to do and the kit worked perfectly. Thank you for helping us put the final touch on our new bedroom!”

“After researching your company, we used the R56 kit (obtained from local dealer) to convert a 5″ potlight to an older style hanging fixture with an industrial look. The kit works great and we are very pleased with the outcome. Will need another kit for the next project (potlight to chandelier on the patio).”

– Dianne S.

“I had a 6″ recessed can in a small office that did not have any ducting, so it gets hot. I purchased the Can Converter to add a fan for airflow in the space. I needed to rig it a bit, as the fan that I owned did not have a ball, but rather was locked into a bracket. So far so good!”

“Used the Can Conversion kit to change my 6” original (1989) can lights over a counter to a drop light that utilizes LED technology and provides an attractive upgrade to the kitchen look.

Took a while to figure out how to install the conversion, so decided to go online to the YouTube video. Well, DUH! I should have done that first and saved quite a bit of time. Excellent video on installation. Without going back to see if it’s in the instructions for installation, it should be highlighted somewhere on there.

Easy to install and a great product!”

Outdoor can lights changed to fans.

– James C.

When our new home was being built in 2014, we decided not to go with pendant lights over our kitchen island because our ceiling was 12 ft and the island was kept at counter height (3 ft). Since moving in during Jan 2015, we found that the ceiling LED cans over-illuminated the kitchen area (even with a dimmer switch) when wanting focused lighting at the counter. We learned that the makers of our dining room chandelier also made companion pendant lights. We were initially planning on buying cheaper kits, but our electrical fixture supplier, who also acquired the pendant lights and needed extensions (Bayside Electrics, Wilmington NC) recommended and ordered for us The Can Converter and we’re glad they did! It came with all the necessary parts and the decorative plate which would have been an added expense. Being a fairly decent handyman, I took on the project and was easily able to follow the instructions and completed the project in a few hours (3 converter kits installed, 3 lights assembled and installed.) We now enjoy the ambiance we were looking for and the added detail to our new home. Thanks for being there!

Replaced two recessed can lights in the master bath – much needed air circulation for room with no windows/vents. Quite simple even with the addition of a wireless remote control for each fan.

“Entry can light just didn’t add anything to the foyer. Now my client has a decorative pendant that matches the rest of the house. This converter is higher quality than the last converter kit that I have used.”
