Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FriscoJack Outstanding product...
I ordered several of the HALO sloped ceiling fixtures and settled on the H47ICAT as the best of the bunch. Excellent quality, well made and airtite. 1 is installed and I'm ordering 5 more with the 498W trim to complete the project. All the stuff arrived several days sooner than I expected. Free shipping to boot! How can you beat that? Don't believe the poor quality reviews.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Loomy Great value for DIYer
I ordered four light assemblies. Items shipped in one original Halo box. Units were slightly damaged but easily repairable/straightened. Based on how these were shipped, no surprises regarding condition. Quite easy to install for those with basic mechanical skillsets. No glaring issues. Recommended and would buy again. (Based on several recessed light projects in my house, I highly recommend this type of lighting upgrade.Done right, the lighting improvement is astounding.)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jrry660 broken item
The long metal ends to attach to the studs where sent damaged or they were damaged during shipment. The housing is very large and wide so you will need to make sure you have space and depth in your ceiling to install it. It was a tight fit and had to force the thing to fit without breaking it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mtnplaces Very poor quality
I just purchased and installed 24 Halo H47ICAT cans for sloped ceilings in a house I'm building. They're certainly easy to nail to the rafters. However, before you install them, plan to spend 15 to 60 minutes per can to repair them and prepare them for installation. Because of the flimsy metal, poor packaging (these were shipped in their original boxes), and outrageously poor assembly, every unit needed to be repaired. The nailing flanges and mounting rails on every unit needed to be bent back to the original shape and reworked so that the units would slide smoothly on the the mounting rails. Even then, the rails kept jumping out of the tabs after they were nailed to the rafters and the unit was slid along the rails into position. On a third of the units, some of the tabs that held the outer round can to the flat bottom metal were not fastened so that the unit basically pulled apart. To fix these cans, I had to disassemble the entire unit and reattach the outer can to the base. In one instance I had to drill extra holes because the screw holes no longer lined up. To fasten the cans so that they don't move along the rails once installed, don't bother with the screw provided for this purpose. Half of these screws were improperly angled and did no good whatsoever. Some of the units were missing the screws that were
supposed to help secure the mechanism that holds the light bulb. While you're getting replacement screws, get extra materials to repair the foam insulation on the bottom of the unit. This was damaged on a third of the units. Also, the material used to make the units airtight was improperly installed on several units so that the material didn't cover the air gap. I'm fearful that the electrical components are of the same poor quality and that these units are a potential fire hazard. So, I plan to build forms around them and not let them come into contact with insulation. My recommendation is to never buy anything from Cooper Lighting, the makers of Halo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Timtoolman Very simple to install
Easy to install and wire. Truss mounts attach to beam with nails on slide. Priced item at different locations and with the free shipping, couldn't beat it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobS Perfect for a sloped ceiling
I always love Halo products. This does not disappoint. Easy to install, easy to wire, and works as expected. Not a lot of room for insulation above them with 2x8 rafters.

These lights are great! I finally have lighting in my kitchen. My husband installed them while I was at work, and he said the installation was pretty easy.
