Great product
Worked perfectly. I found a video on the internet from Westinghouse that showed how to install step by step and so I didn't even need the printed directions. I'm already planning to purchase more.

westinghouse can converter
I ordered the Westinghouse Can Light Converter from Midland because they had the best price online, and no one carried it in store where I live. As for the product, it is great. It's easy to install, and sturdy enough to hang a fairly heavy pendant light. The kit is well thought out and provides everything you need to make the conversion. It certainly beats the alternative solution in time, money and frustration.

Not all 4" cans are alike!
I bought three of these for my 4" cans, and they do not fit. The interior opening on the cans is only 3 3/4 inches, and the metal band on the cans (which fits flush against the ceiling) cannot be removed.

Good and Bad
GOOD THINGS: Great product in that you don't have to remove the can and mount your own hardware to ceiling. This was especially helpful for me because my ceiling is a tile grid system -- open above with no joists. Fairly simple to use. ALSO, I searched Amazon, Ebay, etc.. Midland Hardware is the least expensive (most starting at $20/each) BAD THINGS (2): 1. My cans had an outside "housing" unit or "shell" that we couldn't see. So when we tried installing the mounting bracket to the can, the screws would hit. We solved this by drilling through that outside shell. 2. This was the worst part of the whole thing -- the can converter's decorative white plastic plate is very small. You don't need it unless your lamps cover piece is smaller than the can hole. Of course mine was! So when we put up the plastic plate and then tried mounting my lamp cover to the mounting bracket, there wasn't enough space to screw in the screws. We couldn't even do it by hand. We had to purchase larger cover plates -- minimum of 10" and it was still a struggle. So best to get a lamp that will have a cover LARGER than your cans!

Westinghouse Recessed Can Light Converter
Great product. Easy to install. Quick delivery. My only mod had to do with the supplied round cover. I could not attach my hanging lamp over the raised round cover so I attached directly over the round metal cover provided ....easily done and for a great price!

Westinghouse can light converted to pendant lighting
This is a good product with a some simple modifications. First: The pig tail screwed into the socket will only work with a medium depth socket. I had to buy extension sockets to get power out of the pig tail. (The socket is shorter than a regular light bulb and would not make contact with the center of the socket in my can lights, even after I pulled the contact out from the base. My can lights are 20 years old) Screws supplied on the second connector hit the ground screws before they were tight( Screws were about 1/4" too long. I had to remove these ground screws and move the copper ground wire to a different location. This product is good but it needs a few tweeks to make it excellent

Westinghouse recessed light converter
This is a quality and efficient item. just what I needed and the price was right Received it on the 2rd day after ordering.. Be careful, though it is made for pendant lights with the secure screws on the bottom side of the fixture that fits to the ceiling. Mine had the screws on the side and I had to modify the plastic ceiling cover to accommodate it. it took a while but look great and not a big deal now that it is done. Otherwise, I could have installed in 15 minuutes. I highly recommend it.

Rev.
The product is inexpensive and easy to install. More importantly, the customer service was excellent. They initially shipped the wrong item, quickly responded, and sent the correct item immediately.
