    The Safety click probably only saves you a minute or two over conventional connections. When you consider that you have to wire in both the female to the fixture and the male to the ceiling box you have now done twice as many connections as with the old method. I have not done one and look forawrd to what you have to say after your install. I thought of it more as a gadget

    I would have installed it yesterday, but you need #14 solid for the pushing connection, all I carry is #12. Actually it should be pretty quick.
    You push wires into the mount, secure the mount, throw up the fan, a couple of screws to secure, it has the blade brackets already attached(In a big box), and each blade uses 1 thumb screw on the back, then pop on the light fixture.
    I would hate to have to find just a replacement part, don't know how difficult to find if contacts are burnt? Replace the whole fan? Or very expensive?
    If you go to their site, they show a lady poping on and off the wall a sconch light. If you wanted to have fun with your friends, you could have 2 sets of Sconches, One set when they arrive, and in 5 minutes, 6 fixtures could be swapped out, when they walk back through, it may make them scratch their head?
