The installation instructions are poor, but I was able to piece it together with some patience. All overhead lights are kind of hard to install though, and this one didn't seem to be significantly more challenging than so many others. I like the globes, but it's very hard to get my hand inside to work with them. The globes are susceptible to getting scuffed during installation, so be careful. The design is perfect for my house so I was willing to work through the challenges.
