We've purchased a few of these lights for use lighting artwork on display stands. We've put a track on top of the display and can plug the lights into the track when they are needed and move them side to side. Works well.

I purchased two of these track lights. I had a special situation where I needed a ceiling lights, but had a low hanging obstacle that the fixture needed to be aimed around. As these fixtures where not at all inexpensive, I looked around at all the normal home centers, but was only able to find a similar product at Home Depot and alas, it had only a 12" neck and came in white - not black. It was apparent that if I wanted to solve this unique lighting dilemma, I was going to have to pay a premium - and I did. The good news it that the fixture performed admirable and did what I needed it to. One small reservation - the neck was not as rigid as I would have liked. It seemed to want to straighten a bit when I formed aggressive angles to get the light to where I needed it to go. This is not a huge issue and as this was the only solution available I can whole-heartedly recommend this product, despite the price. YLighting was professional in their transaction with good communication and fast service. Nicely done!

We needed table lighting in our 200 yr old house. We were able to place the dual track on top of a chestnut beam so it is not visible, and then curved the lights to shine on the table below. With the dual track we could control the table lights separately from those illuminating the corners of the room. The two circuits are separately controlled by two lutron dimmers mounted high where they are not easily noticed. 16 par 60 watt floods fit nicely inside the covers and provide even, adjustible lighting. We like this arrangement so much we have ordered more for another location.
NOTE: be sure to get variable frequency dimmers rather than IR dimmers if you need two different circuits controlled from the same location or the control will not be independent.

These light fittings are useful because they allow you to direct the light over a wide range in all dimensions. The somewhat "industrial" or "technical" look is fashionable without being pretentions. They are rather heavy, so they work better with a smaller bulb.
Note that they are not compatable with Hampton Bay H tracks--the contact lobes are slightly the wrong shape.

quality product. easy installation. updates an historic home and twists into interesting shapes: each lamp becomes an "art-work" itself.
