Re: Can you adapt a fan light as a ceiling light?
You might be able to modify a standard light fixture by installing a pull chain switch in the canopy where it attaches to the junction box.
As for using a fan light, I don't believe there is any way to adapt it using off-the-shelf parts without some modification. Sure, you can modify another electrical box cover for the purpose, but that will nullify its UL listing, and some inspectors won't approve the use of modified parts. (The UL listing is only valid for an unmodified device used as the manufacturer intended.)

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
