Questions & Answers

Do these need to be mounted to a stud?

Asked by: Kat
No they are designed to go in a hole you cut in the ceiling gypsum board. Three prongs lock it in when you attach the wires and slip it into the opening.

Will this light work with a dimmer switch?

Asked by: Chip
dimmers work best with halogen bulbs, which i think these are. but i think for LED,s you need at least 4 fixtures connected, so as to draw the voltage because the wattage is so low in LED,s. example... 10 watt LED x 4 lights = 40 watts. (the minimum requirement for led,s) look it up. so, you cant use a dimmer with just two lights. you need four.

Nice of Lithonia to include wire-nuts, wish they would have included a wire connector............that would have given this review 5 stars

They add just the right splash of color to any ceiling and don't feel like they have taken over the area like the 4" to 6" lights. Purchased both the standard Bronze as well as Oil Rubbed Bronze to see the difference when 1 of each was installed - couldn't tell a difference in our vaulted ceiling with the light on or off and thus opted for getting 9 of the "standard bronze" kits rather than paying double for the Oil rubbed bronze. They provide very adequate light and look luxurious when install is complete. I would recommend having needle-nosed pliers, a flat screwdriver, and a laser level when installing these lights. The pliers / flat screwdriver allow you to better align the canister flush to the ceiling because as mentioned in other posts, there is a possibility of bending / stretching the retractable arms as they pop out of the housing fairly easily when trying to fit the housing through the drywall hole. The laser level is to help align the lights across your ceiling due to the fact that not all walls are level and your eyes are easily "tricked" into the wall appearing to be straight. The same cannot be said for misaligned lights. Pros: Instant elegance and big impact to any room. Installation is easy for med - advanced handymen / handywomen. Cons: The halogen GU10 lights that come in the kit are TERRIBLE. All were replaced within the first few months of installation (see recommendation below). The L shape of the housing caused a bit of a fight sometimes with the hole cut based on the template provided (if you are new to installing / remodeling lighting - there will be a few 3 to 4-letter words used during installation such as: Argh / DOH / Dang / Darn). With the housing being Non-IC as well as the hole in the drywall being quite small, there is a bit of difficulty when removing the required 3" of insulation surrounding the canister. There is even more of an issue when you run multiple fixtures within the same joist / rafter run as there could be a possibility of the insulation to slide around in the space if it isn't stapled - see installation of insulation by lazy people where the "just push it up and it should stay" method is used. Recommendations: As stated above, I would recommend taking the halogen light bulbs out of the kit when purchasing and have Home Depot recycle them. The longest bulb lasted about 4 months after purchase until I was done having my ladder as a center piece in our living room "just in case I have to replace another bulb." I would recommend getting the following LED lights: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Philips-50W-Equivalent-Bright-White-MR16-GU10-LED-Light-Bulb-18-Pack-465054/300184106 These LED lights have lasted over a year now without any issue as well as cut down on the amount of heat radiating from the fixtures because of initial the halogen lights previously used. As stated in other reviews, if an arm of the remodel spring becomes stretched / bent during the process of installing the receptacle into the ceiling, you are able to reform / reshape the arm so that it is functional again by using pliers. Some complaints have been that the light hangs down from the ceiling anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4" - this means that the spring arms haven't fully locked or are too stretched out away from the body. First, try to push up on the inside of the canister and double check that all the spring arms are fully locked, meaning the inner middle part of the spring arm on the inside of the canister has clicked into place. Double check that the bottom of the spring arm (it makes an L shape near the very edge of the canister) is level / flush with the bottom of the white canister and is also on the outside (bottom) part of the drywall. All-in-all, I would recommend these lights to anyone and have since purchased several more for my home and other homes as well.

I purchased the pan and brackets as I needed them for new construction and they went together very easily. The wires that came with it seemed as though they could have been one gauge thicker, but it still worked OK, I suppose. The other thing I might add is that the wire box is fairly flimsy, which obviously doesn't matter once its installed, but breaking off the wire tabs of the wire hole took a little doing and I was worried I was bending the whole assembly too much! Anyway, I have them three of them on a dimmer "spotlighting" a wall of photos and it looks great!

Installed these a couple of months ago, and I've had 3 out of 4 of the lights have their bulb go out! In addition to this, I can't get them to sit flush against the ceiling. For some reason, every time I push the bulb/faceplate combination into the bracket, it just slips out. As a result I have 4 lights that sit about 1/2" from the ceiling, which gives an awesome effect, if you like things that look sloppy.

I have used this product in the past and have been very satisfied by them. Recently, I installed them and ran into a situation that I hadn't dealt with before. I had questions, so I contacted Lithonia tech support by email. Their response was almost immediate, I was blown away. Their answers were clear and concise which allowed me to complete the project. I am very happy with this experience and am sold on Lithonia's products.
