are these safe to use in bathroom ceilings?

Asked by: sam
Yes, but invest the money in an LED light/trim. it makes the recess can ok for wet locations. The unit is made of all aluminum anyway. Be smart and also get a dimmer for LED to help save money on your electric bill. You can get it all at Home Depot.

How many cans can I have in one series or circuit?

Asked by: BuckSgt94
It depends on the wattage of the bulb. If you use LED, for example, calculate the wattage and make sure your dimmer can handle the load as well.

6 in. Aluminum Recessed Lighting Remodel Shallow IC Air-Tite Housing is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 75.

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.

I tried all sorts of ways to get them to snap into place. I guess those with reviews of "easy to install" were lucky. my ceiling is 1/2" sheet rock with standard knock down finish. I bought Halo because they usually have good products. NOT THIS ONE!! i am returning to HD. I have just wasted hours trying to make them work. very frustrated retired contractor!

However, if you have plaster ceilings, then securing these cans is tricky. It would be better if the clips were actually arms that have screws that secure the unit like those of electrical boxes. Other than that, they are ideal.

Most of the time the clips won't click into place. Bought 3 of these. First one - only 2 of the clips would click into place. The second one - only 1 of the clips would work. The last one, NONE of them will click into place, rendering the housing useless...

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.
