Questions & Answers

What LED light to use

Can you use any LED light that will fit the 5" opening or are you restricted to the HALO LED package? Or should I go with the standard HALO 5" recessed housing vs the LED version?
Asked by: ChuckJ
The Halo is recommended as stated on the recessed can packaging, but any LED retrofit trim with the orange T24 B connector type will work.

My ceiling opening is exactly 6" diameter, it's a metal panel mounted to the bottom of a stair landing, will this housing work?

Asked by: EWA
You will need a 6 inch retrofit housing. The 5 inch is too small. Also, check the depth and see if you will also need a shallow can which is also available.

What is the difference between this and H572RICAT for $25.66

Asked by: ToddInNJ
Dear valued consumer, the H550RICAT is a non-screw-base connection that preserves the high efficacy rating and prevents use of low efficacy incandescent sources. It must be used in conjunction with an LED recessed retrofit fixture, ie Halo RL56, RA56 and SLD56 models. The H572RICAT can be used with basic trims and incandescent lamps or be used with LED 56 series LED retrofits.

It's a really elegant design, very quick and easy to install, until you try to connect the ML56 LED lighting module. There's a wiring harness from the top of the housing that plugs right in to the top of the module, really easy. However, the module also has a separate ground wire which is supposed to be connected separately to the housing, but there's simply no way to do it with supplied parts. The instructions say to use the supplied machine screw and nut to connect the ground wire to an existing hole on the housing, or use the nut on an existing post in the housing. But the H550RICAT housing has no holes (it's supposedly air-tight) or posts. You could do it with a self-tapping sheet metal screw, but none are supplied. There's simply no way to do it. Even if you have a self-tapping sheet metal screw, it's really hard to connect the ground wire because it's too short and you don't have enough hands to hold the module up and screw it in. Everything else about this system seems so well designed... I contacted Halo/Eaton customer support, who could only offer an apology. Well, except that it's supposed to be air-tight, which is achieved with some foam tape. But the tape fails to seal on all six of my housings around where the wire comes through, and the lack of actual packaging failed to protect the foam tape on the top of the housing which seals some holes (those holes are too big and too far for the ground screw). So they're not actually air-tight. You can easily fix this yourself with more foam tape and/or silicone sealant, but you shouldn't have to. So find another brand. One which actually tries to install their products before selling them. BTW, Home Depot also fell down on the packaging. They threw six housings and a couple of the modules in a massively oversized box with a token amount of air bag padding. The housings came in dented, with the clips loose in the bottom of the box, and much of the foam sealing tape on the outsides of the housings ripped. But my local store doesn't stock these housings... Get 'em elsewhere where you can inspect them in person.

Thumb pressure was not adequate to accomplish the task. Once locked in place and to assure they remained locked I used a #10 pan head screw as recommended in the directions. Otherwise, a good product.

I used a 5.5" hole saw and the cans fit really snugly. I tapped the clips with a hammer to lock them in place. I put in 12 cans and there were no issues or defects with any of these cans. I recommend them.
