I'm very handy at putting things together & installing. Regardless I ended up need to call an electrician friend for a little help. I couldn't get the bar pendant to screw into the ceiling plate of the fixture. The electrician discovered the crossplate (brassy plate that connects across the opening of the existing electrical box & fixture screws into this plate) was actually poorly designed. The plate didn't have holes for the screws drille din the appropriate places. He had to redrill new holes. (I never would've gone that far & probably would've just returned it). Once fixed, I was able to install most of the rest on my own. Installing the glass shade is NOT a 1 person job. The shade never actually attaches to the unit, it just rests inside. You need 1 set of hand to screw the J-shaped bars to each other while another hold the glass shade up. Using the fixture in my kitchen workspace triangle. Provide decent light & looks great. Good luck with installation, the instructions are basically non-existent.
