Circular Low Voltage Ceiling Downlight Converter White 12V
An excellent cost effective fix. Used on an old extractor hole which was 100 mm diameter and was so easy to fit.
Many thanks to LeightonDIYer for his tutorial which convinced me to take this route.

Yep this does a good job converting an old spotlight fittings to either halogen or led lamps
I have just started to use them and like how simple they are

Did the job well
A good solution to replacing old large downlighters - this covered the 120mm hole left by my old ones so I can't agree with the reviewer who complained it didn't cover a 107mm hole. As there's not much spare margin around such a large hole I put a fillet of adhesive around the edge to try and prevent the fitting moving when removing and replacing the lamp.
The instructions don't tell you how to assemble the two parts received in the box. I noticed the cut-out in the bar with the terminal block matches the shape of the spring mounting on the lamp fitting so put the two together as per the photos. A bit fiddly to assemble but it keeps the terminal block away from the heat produced by the lamps.
When inserting the spring clips into the ceiling void make sure you press the central section of the faceplate of the lamp as well as the outer or it will come apart. Easy to reassemble but annoying if it happens!

It is an excellent product for replacing old downlighters. I had some fluorescents with a 100 mm diameter and these came as a solution for covering the holes. Can be used with GU10, MR16 (transformer required) or LEDs. Giving 4 stars, as they are not fire rated and that limits their use. Excellent value.
