Since these are mounted from the ceiling side, do I need to clear any insulation that may be above?

I see that these are fully enclosed from the lamp but not sure if that provides enough thermal protection. I could remove the insulation, just not sure if necessary.

Answer: 
Dear valued consumer, this is an insulation contact rated housing. The integral Thermal Protector
deactivates fixture if an incorrect lamp is used or if non-air permeable ceiling insulation material is applied.

I cannot find any LED 5000K that fits this :(

I was thinking Par30 Short Neck would fit, but in general its very hard to find especially for 5000K.

My goal is to eliminate glare.
Is there a deep one of this that is IC compliant?

Answer: 
I just installed this can last week. There is a standard incandescent light bulb socket at the top. The LED which I used was rated 3000K. That looks very bright - might you consider two close by units if you need 5000K?

6 in. Aluminum Recessed Lighting Remodel Shallow IC Air-Tite Housing is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Necessary for job but mounting clips don't lock on ceiling thicker than 5/8in The floor joist spacing in the ceiling required this shallow clearance can. It appeared well made, and fit into the space as expected. When it came time get the clips to lock down on to the underside of the ceiling board however they would not lock down. It looks like this is designed for ceiling board 5/8" thick and the 60+year old house had thicker board. I finally used some #10 machine screws to go through the T-openings where the bottom part of the clips fit the can. Tightening the screws pushed and held the clips into the down position to hold the can in place. Necessity is often the mother of invention.

Also, the can is a bit larger than other brands and my Klein cutter would not adjust to the proper diameter. So when I pushed one of them through it broke the back of the sheetrock. I got lucky and it won't be noticed after the trim is in place, but be careful. Also, you can use short self tapping sheet metal screws to screw the tabs into the side of the can to keep them locked in. Engaging them as they are designed to do is impossible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the new lighting!!! Needed to add lighting in kitchen. Purchased 4 can lighting. Modern upgrade. simple to install in exhisting ceiling. Templet came with them, easy to use to get measurements of placement before cutting holes. Easy to wire, snaps in place to drywall. I will be buying more to install in my office next.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had to retrofit The hardware itself is really good for this product and the connections are easy to make for the electrical. But getting it to stay up in the ceiling with the clips is very difficult. I had to use screws and drill holes to get it to stay tight with ceiling

My only complaint is the clips to hold housing in place are difficult to engage into the locked position. I installed 4 of these so far and will likely add at least 3 more to my home.
