The reviews on this product ranged from great to difficult to put up so we were unsure but took a chance anyway. My first concern was the reviewer who said the wires showed unless you were right under the fixture - that problem was easily solved with a shallow mounting box so that the fixture is flush against the ceiling. We bought 4 of these fixtures to create one large fixture over our dining room table. The results are stunning. We needed a shallow mounted fixture and anything large, hung down too low so this idea was perfect. I am just sorry I can't post a picture along with this review. My only complaint about this fixture was how difficult it was to tighten the nut in the center of the fixture that attaches it to the ceiling. You need a strong person with very small hands to do this but otherwise, it was easy to put up and the results are breath taking. Of the four fixtures only one ball was damaged - I plan on calling today for a replacement. One last comment on the clips, I did not find them flimsy at all but you do have to make sure to squeeze them closed securely. I highly recommend this product.
