Rated 5 out of 5 by jpc858 Perfect Replacement!
My mother's condo has seven flourscent fixtures in the kitchen, above and below the cabinets. After 40 years all of the ballasts are finally going bad. I was torn between replacing the ballasts or the entire fixtures.
The local home improvement stores didn't have much in the way of single bulb T12 fixtures and only had GE "universal" ballasts. I found these to universally not work in my application!
The Sola units are an exact replacement for the original balasts. They are the same dimensions and even bolted in place perfectly in the old fixtures. It's a five wire application (black; white; 1x blue; 2x red) and with five wire nuts and five minutes, the fixtures work like new!
