“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…”

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.

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!

All can lights in kitchen were converted to LED. The last two cans were converted using the Can Converter kit to pendant fixtures over the center island. Pictures show one light installed and then second light installed. First conversion took much longer by following directions for first time but second was much quicker after knowing what to do. First time DIY installer.

Did a remodel job and the existing before pendants are toggle bolted through the sheet rock, Very “mickey mouse” and not the way an electrician should do things. So i pulled them all down they happened to be lightolier 4″ recessed. Did some research through my supply house. Acquired these can converters to my surprise a very sturdy hold for the brackets.
