Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wally Poor Instructions, Soft Aluminum Housing, Clips don't work, No tech support,etc.
The instructions look good but there should be more detail on securing the clips. The aluminum can distorts when trying to secure the clips. This is a poor design. The soft aluminum can can tear when using enough force to secure the clips. When you think they are secure the other side pops out. I ended up using a combination of long screws into nearby joists and screws into the clips. (not supplied) The price is good if you have enough time to re-engineer their holding mechanism. Also no tech support. The instructions don't supply a phone number for help. I sent Cooper Industries an email asking for any advice and notify them that one of the clips was missing from the contractor box. I did not receive a reply.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gjs Fairly Easy To Install
The housings were fairly easy to install. Some of the attachment clips kept releasing, but all in all a good product. Also be very careful handling product as the metal edges are very sharp!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nickdude Works, but low quality
Box of six and four were probably out of round/dented from the box being tossed around. The construction is flimsy, had two with bad rivets. The retaining clips can be a big PIA, three out of four cans I needed to go into my attic and pull on the last clip to get it to go past the magic point.
I wish they had a recommended hole saw to install these with, seemed like I just couldn't get these in without some final adjusting. Even though the saw would be more than the cans.
All in all they work when your done, nobody in there right mind would praise these things for their quality though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Flakman All around excellent but installation a pain
Overall I really like these housings. However, I had a six pack of housings which is 24 total tabs. Out of those 24, only 2 worked without alteration. I had to remove each tab and straighten the bend out a bit in order for the tab to push in enough to snap in. At that point I could push the tab up to lock. If you figure that out, the rest goes very smoothly and the housings install great and are super easy to connect wiring. The tabs are the only ding I can give the housings.

These have the plastic strain relief so that you can put the Romex in without threading it through holes. This and the push terminal wire connectors make these the fastest to install. After installing hundreds of these, there have been no failures.
