How many can be installed on one circiut?

Asked by: Mike
In this day and age, don't waste your time putting in anything other than R30 LEDs. There is no long term cost benefit analysis where you would want to put incandescents. Given that, they draw about 9 watts each, so your theoretical maximum is about 175 of them, far more than you would ever install on one circuit. Talk of 100 watt bulbs in these is silly. The LEDs stay much, much cooler also.

Can these be used with LED lights and a dimmer?

Asked by: Gal7373
Yes. The housings are irrelevant to the type of lights and switching.

Removal of flate plate inside can

I am using the long neck baffle trim with my housing can. It seems as though the trim is to long when i insert it inside the housing can. Should i remove the circular flat plate inside the housing can so that it will fit inside?
Asked by: Braven
If the baffle trim has a hole in the end (the size of the light socket) then you remove the plate and snap the light socket in to the baffle trim( with the two clips).

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

Installing these was a breeze and I was able to wire them light to light. The only advice I would suggest is that when I used a drywall saw for the holes and the template provided, the holes were a smidge small and sometimes I had to widen the hole to install the fixture.

I have used this in the past for our family room, and did another 6 in my basement workshop. Comes with the necessary template to cut opening in the drywall, and the rest is simple wiring. I've used LED retrofit trim kits in these, regular LEDs, CF, and incandescent with no issues.

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
