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.

5 in. Aluminum Recessed Lighting Remodel IC Air-Tite Housing is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from worked great As i read some of the issues with the clips i decided to buy 2x4 sheets of dry wall before installing in my ceiling. I practiced on those sheets of dry wall until i perfected it. The one tip that worked the best was to use a screw driver to gently pry open the top slit in the housing where the top of the clip goes. Once i did that it was easy. Once in the ceiling i used a flat head screw driver to drive the clip up and in until it locked into place.

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN YOU NEED TO PRE-BEND THE TABS BECAUSE OF CEILING THICKNESS, BUT OVER ALL NICE PRODUCT. IF I COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THIS PRODUCT I WOULD MAKE THE LOWER LIP SLIGHTLY LARGER SO YOU CAN CUT A LARGER HOLE, WHICH WOULD HELP WITH GETTING THE PRODUCT IN THE CEILING.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT 5" hole!! 5 1/2" hole! I bought all my supplies for 6 high hat project in my living room from homedepot.com. The specification for this page says 5", so I bought a 5" hole saw. My hole saw, electrical boxes for switches and romex came first, so I started my job. I had all my cuts, holes, and wiring in before these and realized they are 5 1/2" inches. It is extremely difficult to re-cut a hole 1/2" in larger in situation, but especially mine b/c I have plaster, not sheet rock. I have found other fixtures from another competitor that will fit in my 5" holes, I'm considering returning all of these for those to save the labor/mess of changing all my holes. It would be beneficial for homedepot.com to update their information in 2 very easy ways. 1.) Fix title "5 IN. ALUMINUM RECESSED LIGHTING REMODEL IC AIR-TITE HOUSING (5.5in hole) 2.) Make sure the specifications table has the correct overall dimensions At this point, I can't comment on the product directly, my one start rating is all about purchase experience and how it affected me personally.
