" Rewired barn and replaced all, 40 year old, bare bulb, porcelain fixtures with this unit. Good overall quality. Glass glove is heavy duty, cage and base are die cast aluminum. Cage is bayonet mount and locks with two set screws which are factory tightened way too tight and difficult to get loosened for installation. Two mounting ears on base are OK but if the base is mounted on an uneven surface such as hand hewn white oak beams one of them is likely to snap off if you screw it down too tightly because of brittle quality of die cast aluminum. Overall a great value compared to items from McMaster, etc. which cost 4 to 5 times as much. "

" The quality of this fixture far exceeded what I expected! It was really easy to install...and I do mean easy. I installed these in a small former horse shed that I'm converting to my woodworking shop. I seriously have no complaint about the fixture and the order fulfillment was speedy too. They look great, are as sturdy as heck and easy to access the bulb. Advice: If you use CFC bulbs in it, make sure the bulb DOES NOT warn against using in a fully enclosed fixture. I think the older CFC's did warn against it. "

" I have a body shop and these work really good in the spray booth , using those 100 watt twisted bulbs. They don't cast shadows light incondecent bulbs, and a 4 or 8 foot florescent bulb cast too much to get closed in to keep the paint dust from sticking to the bulbs !!! "

" I recently installed two of these in my shop to light it up the when the main lighting is shut off at night. I wired photocells on both of them so they turn on and off automatically. I used the GE energy smart,20 watt,1200 lumen, daylight (75 watt equivalent) It produces a white light much like a metal halide bulb does and just two of these light up my 4,000 sq. ft. shop. I was very impressed with how heavy duty these lights are made and am very pleased with them. Definitely worth the money! "
