Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great recessed light product This was my first recessed lighting project and it went so smoothly that I am planning out a few more rooms. The cans are great quality, easy to work with, and stay flush with the ceiling. I really like that there is room in the can for the electrical cable connections, and having a push module for the wires is great as well. Definitely a great product especially for the price. I used LED lights with these on a dimmer switch and everything is working perfectly. May 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love how easy it is to install these fixtures. just upon opening the box the packaging is done perfectly. The quality of each fixture is terrific and they are very easy to install. I use them on every job and even in my own home. July 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great They installed easily once the holes were cut. The clips snapped into place and hold them solidly. The wire connectors in the boxes are really handy. I am not sure what the other reviewer did to not have them hold, but I miswired one box and found it almost impossible to pull the wire back out. A much better hold than a wire nut. It does not have the orange connectors for the led retrofit lights, but they all [retrofit led's] come with the Edison screw base adapter that works fine. The brackets for the wire clips on the retrofit lights work fine also. These worked great for providing light directly over the counter on our kitchen. May 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 6" Recessed Can Housing. Overall this can housing is really easy to work with, as far as installation goes. The compact design of the can and the wiring connectors are plus, and it does help with an easy installation. The only problem I've noticed, when you install the baffle and the trimming, there is no actual key hole on the can itself to connect the springs to hold up the trimming in place. Instead the key hole is on the plate where the actuall light socket is connected to. For that reason, it makes it a lose connection between the baffle and the ceiling. Yes you can try to pull the spring up, tight upward through the key hole but it's not that easy, it will keep popping out lose. Basically, I do recommend this product,and I'll use them again. I wish they would provide key hole on the can itself, it'll make it much easer to work with. April 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good design, just as good as the pricey ones. I am glad to see that they put in the PUSH IN wire connectors. You don't even need wire nuts anymore. I just put up a video of me installing it if you are curious to see how it is done. I cant complain about this it works perfect. February 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product! It works really well, the easy push connectors make it very easy to connect them quickly. The easy wire connectors also let you link the lights together easily. There are many different trims to pick from. The cut out template is thin card board, so it is quite flimsy. I found it makes it easier when you make a template of a thicker material. I'm very satisfied. May 17, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Light Socket Screw (E26) Rivet Sometimes Breaks Spec.say the bulb size is PAR 30 (3 3/4 " dia). When I use an Ecosmart ECO-FD6, sometimes the light socket breaks free of the rivet that secures the screw socket to the ceramic base. When this happens the light no longer can be turned on. I believe the reason is the Ecosmart ECO-FD6 bulb assembly is over two times the torque of an ordinary BR or PAR 30 bulb. The diameter of the Ecosmart ECO-FD6 is 7 3/8 " vs. 3 3/4 " for a PAR 30 (about 2 times the torque). The Ecosmart light fixture has to be flush to the ceiling surface, so the tenancy is to try to screw in the Ecosmart ECO-FD6 more than the screw socket rivet can handle. So far I broken 2 sockets out of 16. March 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value! Easy installation! On the plus side, the price is right, meets all requirements and installation and wiring is a breeze. On the minus side, sharp edges on every part (wear gloves!). Also ceiling lip not at full 90 degrees to housing which keeps trim from seating snug to ceiling (Easily fixed by tapping flush with hammer as very thin metal). Overall- good value. March 28, 2015
