Center Stem Four Light Swivel CFL Thumbscrew Fitter for 2-1/4" glass
Excellent Quality and Good Swivel Range
Ordered from LightingDirect. It arrived in about a week, drop shipped from the Casablanca warehouse. The fixture is well made and sturdy. The swivels provide as much range of motion as you would ever need and have stayed tight (not an easy design problem, the swivels rely on friction). It comes with candelabra base sockets, not medium base as shown in the photo. Maybe this is a way to meet the Department of Energy EPACT for ceiling fan lights without including compact fluorescent lamps - it would be better to make these medium base and charge more for the CFLs if that would meet regulations. The candelabra base CFLs are wider diameter than the medium base, limiting the CFL bulb possibilities.

Just what we needed
This four light add on to our ceiling fan is exactly what was needed to provide more light in our office. The product is solid and relatively easy to install. In our case, the instructions said to attach the black wire from the light to either the blue or black lead in the fan. Blue was obvious and just there ready to use...but did not work. I had to find the more obscure black lead, clip it and make a three way connection. The instructions could have been more specific.

Plenty of LIght
The fixture is easy to mount on the fan. It comes with CFL bulbs and has regular size sockets. The CFL's come on instantly, and warm up to provide plenty of light - 60W at 13W of electricity. The mounting has a socket/plug to mate with the Casablanca Ceiling Fan, so installation is a breeze. This is our second light fixture from Build and wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

Great kit---poor diagrams
Once I realized I had the right kit (not clear from the illustration and photo), I easily installed it. Some of it was common sense because information was missing. If the photos or illustrations were clear and a step by step set of diagrams was included it would have been quicker. I am a 65 year-old woman and I installed this with a few tools once I understood.

Back order problems
My original order back in July 2011 was for G418 globes, but the back order was taking so long that I accepted the G420 as a substitute. It's of equal 5 star quality, but not my first choice hence 4 stars. On the plus side the company was very swift to send me the substitute globes when I called to check on the back order status.

Fit Casablanca fan perfectly and easily; finish matched; swivel parts have perfect amount of tension and wide range of adjustment; there wasn't room for the locknut, which worries me a little, but so far it has stayed tight.

Purchased a light kit and received same promptly. Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong kit. Return was made easily with UPS label provided and I received a prompt credit to my card. Very efficient on purchase and return side.
