I have 3/4" beadboard and 1/2" drywall going over that. Still use 6" hole or cut bigger for 3/4" above drywall?

3/4" beadboard in ceiling
Asked by: 251ned
The remodel clips provided on this light will work on a maximum 5/8” thick surface. So, the ¾” beadboard above the ½” drywall will need to be cut at a larger diameter of at least 11”.

What is the best trim to use with this housing?

I'd like something that's LED.
Asked by: Steph
I just finished installing 8 lights in my vaulted ceilings, and the LED lights with built-in trim look really sharp. The cans have receivers for the spring wires and they fit snug and secure. If installed correctly, the bulbs get sucked up right against the ceiling.

Can I install this light above a shower?

The light stats approved for damp locations but can I install above a shower?
Asked by: Don
Code lists showers as a wet location not damp. You should seek a air tight recessed can and use a sealed trim for wet locations. Home Depot carries them in stock.

Do I need to buy extra wiring for installation?

Asked by: XCS
Your question isn't clear but if you mean for installing a light into the housing then no. It has the adapter base for screwing in a regular light and you can remove that and use the standard orange clip that LED lights have.

Air tite or not

Is this light air tite? it didn't say in the description.
Asked by: Pui
There is no insulation around the ring. But if you buy some 1/4 foam tape, you can make them sealed. Much cheaper this way.

Lights went in the hole super easy. Getting the spring clips to get seated properly was difficult since I was trying to put then into drywall on top of plaster. Had to use a hammer to fully seat the clips, which ended up bending a few of them. In other words, stick to a normal thickness when placing these. Wiring was simple since it comes with the fast-on connectors. Just strip the wire and insert. Make sure you get some retaining clips for the punch outs, that steel is sharp!

The Quick Connect fittings made installation a breeze after the holes were cut using the provided template. I installed 10 of these in a metal office building overhang/soffitt outdoors (dry location). These have been in service for 3-4 weeks without issue. I would recommend these recessed light fixtures over any of the more expensive options as long as you have an adequate trim ring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty great I had previously used the new install cans whilst doing work on my remodel, and let me tell you, these are so much better for existing drywall. With 2 people I installed 11 of these in my living room in a little over 4 hours, previously with the older type it took about that time to do 6. Definitely worth the extra few dollars for a remodel project

Very easy to work with, we had one of the rivets break and caused the can to separate. We drilled a new hole and put screws in them and fixed it. Easy to put the retrofits in them and very easy to wire.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Standard quality. Standard lighting fixture. Easy install. Comes with plate-mounted type-a socket. Adjustable height. Only 3 bracing tabs. However, in future, i will go with 5" can and 5/6" led driver. Better margin for error if hole is not perfect

Great product, I seem to be buying a lot of Commercial Electric products these days. Very easy to install; just be cautious when purchasing, make sure the box is in good shape. Aluminum is very easy to bend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and easy I have installed 12 of these cans at my house and been running for at least year and half without any problem. They are easy to install and planing to put more in my hallway.
