Fits into any J box, but will suggest a deeper one by the time you fit wire nuts, etc up there!

Well designed product, great installation options, awesome light output
I have three of these in my house, the first was installed a year ago.
They all work great
I installed one above the shower and one above the bath.
Easy install, just used a blue round old work electrical box, they fit perfectly.
I am also a bit of an electronics and LED nut, I took one apart and was happy to find out that all the electronics are manufactured by CREE, world renowned in the LED market.
The reason most cheap LEDs & CFLs die is because the capacitor inside dries out from heat.

I have no doubt these will really last the 35,000 hours they are rated, and then some.

Nicer and brighter than expected!
Used this light to replace a very dim ceiling fixture in a small bath.... I was concerned that the new light would not be much better than the former....
Wow - what a pleasant surprise this product was! Nice and bright so I purchased and installed a 2nd light in the other bath and brightened up that area too.
Good looking trim for price and easy to get a uniformed look the only thing is the springs to hold the trim is really flimsy and makes it difficult to install

Great choice for light cans in my garage
I installed them in electrical cans. REMEMBER to read the directions and remove the round plate that holds the bulb socket in the can first. They installed snuggly to the ceiling and look great.

Looks good, but pricey.
Although this product is a bit pricey for home depot, the quality is good and they are very easy to install. We purchased these trim pieces to replace the discolored white plastic trim that was originally installed in our home. The old trim was very unsightly and the new trim has really refreshed the look of the ceilings.
Our basement rec room remodel introduced a number of challenges regarding lighting. Half the space could accommodate new cans but the low duct work area (nearly half the width of the room) had very limited clearance. This was a perfect solution with new J boxes installed throughout the whole room. I bought 12 for the rec room and 3 for a hallway. Two of the lights came with nice short pigtails for the connector. All of the other units came with a longer wire with the two coils that must have

As others have stated, if you have a lot of wires coming into your box, the final fit can be challenging. I made sure I bought dimmers rated for CFL/LED applications and they work great. Again as others reported, the mounting ring shouldn't be tightened to the ceiling or you'll be struggling. I saw one other comment about getting the mounting ring off the unit when you pull it out of the package. There is a single screw that locks it in place preventing you from twisting the ring off the light. Sometimes there is a label that may hide that screw so look closely. Overall, I was impressed with the quality and price.

The installation process was fairly easy. Remove old fixture, wire in pigtail, install mounting bracket, plug in light fixture, attach to mounting bracket. Definitely DO NOT over-tighten the mounting bracket. Don't "snug" it up or you'll have issues getting the fixture on the mounting bracket.

Awesome Beautiful Light Fixture
Yes the "ultra-low profile surface mounting" is perfect for my small shower stall. Sleek in design and thin with enough light output to show I need to go to Home Depot and get soap scum remover. Nice LED light.
An excellent replacement for your standard 4 in. junction boxes tis configuration is just right. Easy install your basic wiring. And so nice to know that it will last "22 years"!
Love the reflector Trim. We use it on all our homes. Looks absolutely stunning and is very durable. I highly reccommend this product.

THESE LIGHTS REALLY SHINE!
Use these lights (as opposed to the white or black trim) if you really want to light up a room. The reflective trim really bounces the light - hold a spotlight up to a mirror, and you'll see what I mean! Looks awesome with stainless steel/chrome decor and/or accessories...

We went with Halo for our basement recessed lighting because its a leader in the industry. We know they will be around if something goes wrong with their product.
While these trim cones are on the more expensive side, we know they are high quality, and fit easily and beautifully into our Halo lights!
Easy product to install that looks good. The price was right for this.

attractive recess light covers
Easy to install, only problem was that the springs were too short.We were able to use the longer springs from our original covers.

Perfect for shallow recessed light housings!
I installed 8 shallow recessed light housings, and was left with a dilemma as standard br30 bulbs stuck out below the drywall. These trims perfectly encircle the bulb and sit on top of the drywall, helping to make the lights blend into the ceiling. They were super easy to install as well.
