Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dont forget the trim... This product requires a special trim kit from HALO that combines the trim plus an extension to hold the light bulb socket. The socket clicks into the trim kit. I was going to order the 5001SN kit but prefer the less expensive 5000SN kit. Be sure to price out the trim kits so there are no surprises later with costs of trim kits. Home Depot had the cheapest cost for the trim kits. The recessed housing itself was easy to install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by worth the money good product, for DIYers. Installation easy don't have anything else to add August 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works perfect Not much to state here in the review other than mentioning that it does what it was intended to do. Install was simple. Using it is a light over a new shower I built in the basement. July 22, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Flimsy - tracks fall off easily This product is quite flimsy. The housing falls of the tracks/guides exceptionally easily. None of the flanges hold onto the tracks. I would not recommend this product except for the most patient. June 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very user Friendly Have used these for years, will continue to do so. March 4, 2014
