Answer: 
Sometimes these clips can be very hard to engage . You will need to use a screwdriver and a hammer and drive the clips up until they are fully extended.

Answer: 
There are 2 fish eye trim rings you can use the only difference is the size of the bulbs that will fit. A smaller bulb Par 50 fits in the Halo 5071P and the larger regular size bulb fits the Halo 5070P. Just search for the Halo 5071P or Halo 5070P and you should find them.

Answer: 
You can use a variety of trim rings with this can light. Black baffle is Halo 5001MB, White baffle is Halo 5014P, small eyeball baffle is Halo 5071P, and large eyeball baffle is Halo 5070P. I believe there are other color baffles that you can order but these are the ones that are what we use 99% of the time.

Dear valued consumer, the Halo housings can be used in this application. To complete your housing, you will need to ensure that whatever incandescent/LED trim you use is wet location rated.

I can't find the UL approved sticker anywhere on these lights. The literature says they are UL approved, but the inspector won't let me use them unless I can verify they are approved.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 63 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Cans Thank you to Kyle for saving me. The clips are frustrating. There are plenty of guides on here to help, but you do not need to hammer. Simply pull the can if you are struggling.Nex bend the clips outward to open them up a bit. you will now use a flathead screwdriver to push into the clip on the grey covering. Underneath that covering is a notch, that when you push in and upward will tightly lock the clip in place. Again thank you to Kyle for the tip. I'd buy him a beer or 12 for his advice. Bend the clip outward a bit and these cans become a superior product . I love the push connectors ! August 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great remodel light housing I installed these in my attic bedroom and I'm really impressed. I followed the supplied directions and used the template that was also supplied. Two lights installed and wired took about an hour or so. I'm not an electrician but I do have pretty good knowledge of a/c electrical theory. My suggestion to everyone is follow the directions and you'll be fine. If you're having trouble with the clips, then hire a pro to install these. March 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Updating Lady The contractor had a hard time installing this product. He has purchased these in the pass and they just popped in. Maybe this product has had a slight update. He was still able to install. I am satisfied. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, Clips are Fine with 5/8" Drywall I'm not sure why people are complaining so much about the drywall clips. The clips come ready to install for 1/2" dry wall but you just bend each of them a little before you put them up in the ceiling and they are perfect for 5/8" drywall. You can bend them easily with your thumb. As long as you bend the clips before you put them in the ceiling, a screw driver is all you need to lock the clips. No hammer needed as others have stated. I've installed 36 of these throughout my house. January 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best recessed on the market These are the best old work recessed lights on the market, the other big name brands are absolutely horrible. I have been installing these lights for over 10 years, not much has changed. A lot of people on here are writing reviews of having trouble installing them. My guess is they are not qualified electricians. They are not intended for homeowners to just pop right into the ceiling. Hire an electrician and you will have great looking recessed lights. October 12, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Works only with 1/2" thick sheetrock Works good for 1/2 inch ceiling thickness. Tried to install on 5/8" thick board. The clips never locked in position. After destroying two housings, I gave up an bought a more expensive typo from Junos. It has different locking mechanism and worked. I wished that the manufacturer had specified that its locking mechanism works only upto 1/2" thick sheet board October 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ok can, poor clip for 5/8" drywall thickness light was as expected except that clips would not lock, (too stiff for 5/8" drywall) I have plenty of installation experience but these had to be pulled from topside, lucky I could get too them from attic. frustrating! did not try with 1/2" but expect they would work better or maybe with ceiling tile. October 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clips are easy to use once you know how At first, I agreed that the clips are a complete design failure. But then I read the directions. Now, I think the clips are quite ingenious and easy to use, although they are a bit counter-intuitive. Don't read the directions that are printed on the template; use the directions that are tucked into the wiring connection box. The key is Step 10, Figure 10. The directions should have added that a hammer should be used to hit the screwdriver with a hammer several times for each clip. While you are here, read the similar reviews by Pablo and Dan; those reviews helped me understand. The first fixture took me about an hour to figure out and I needed help to install it. After that, it took about 5 minutes per fixture. March 30, 2015
