Excellent Downlighter

" Had an old downlighter to replace which when removed left a hole over 100mm wide , chose this replacement as it covered the hole and looks great , Was a bit fiddly trying to put both parts together but does work really well when installed. "

Simple solution to "big hole"

" Existing down light holes were damaged due to a water leak and these convertors saved the cost of replacing a plasterboard ceiling. Brilliant. "

time and money saver
6 May 2015

" More and more of the old style florescent down lights seem to be coming to the end of their life. This presenting a problem, removing the old style down lights leaves you with a larger hole in the ceiling, in some cases as large as 130mm. Not only are lights to fit such a large hole hard to find, when you do they are very expensive.
These converters are inexpensive, easy to fit and save a lot of time and effort, I’ve lost count of the number I’ve used.

" An excellent cost effective fix. Used on an old extractor hole which was 100 mm diameter and was so easy to fit.
Many thanks to LeightonDIYer for his tutorial which convinced me to take this route.

" A good solution to replacing old large downlighters - this covered the 120mm hole left by my old ones so I can't agree with the reviewer who complained it didn't cover a 107mm hole. As there's not much spare margin around such a large hole I put a fillet of adhesive around the edge to try and prevent the fitting moving when removing and replacing the lamp.
The instructions don't tell you how to assemble the two parts received in the box. I noticed the cut-out in the bar with the terminal block matches the shape of the spring mounting on the lamp fitting so put the two together as per the photos. A bit fiddly to assemble but it keeps the terminal block away from the heat produced by the lamps.
When inserting the spring clips into the ceiling void make sure you press the central section of the faceplate of the lamp as well as the outer or it will come apart. Easy to reassemble but annoying if it happens!

Solution to large ceiling hole
5 Oct 2015
By
, Preston
" Long reaching spring clips on the back so they can fix to quite large holes. good for where large old fashioned downlights have previously been installed.
Pity they don't do GU10 version. I just replace the connector part with a GU10 one.

Downlight convertor

" Good product - easy to fit and looks good . Little bit pricey for a couple of pieces of pressed steel. However it is a good solution to oversized holes . Can't comment on long term reliability but finish appears of a good quality . "

Good product

" It is an excellent product for replacing old downlighters. I had some fluorescents with a 100 mm diameter and these came as a solution for covering the holes. Can be used with GU10, MR16 (transformer required) or LEDs. Giving 4 stars, as they are not fire rated and that limits their use. Excellent value. "

Fiddly springs
10 Mar 2016
By

" The springs on this fitting are particularly tricky.
Get one twisted as you fit it and you will spend 20 minutes getting it back. Too short too.
Sharp ends on them too.
Not a pleasant experience. Avoid. "

poor product

" purchased this product to fit an old par 38 downlight with a hole cut diameter of 107mm, this product says it will fit holes from 70mm to 130mm, not so it was 5mm short so where the 130mm comes from i could only guess. "
