does it work 220v?

Answer

I do not think it was originally designed for 220, but if you can find 220 volt light bulbs to fit it, then it should work.

Hi Zach, thank you for your inquiry! They are intended to be installed into standard drywall applications.

Can i install in a ceiling which has insulation, that is can the insulation touch the housing?

Asked by 141Flyboy September 8, 2020
2
Answers

Yes, but only if you use the LED bulb. If you use an incandescent halogen bulb, you need clearance between the insulation and the housing for cooling. Halogens get quite hot!

What is the actual size of the template for cut out

Asked by Rick August 25, 2020
1
Answer

The remodel kit only needs a 3 inch hole. I cut this in a drywall ceiling with a 3 inch hole saw in my drill. Very easy installation. I have installed several dozen of these. I can't speak for the new construction version, as I use the remodel even in new construction.

How do i change the lightbulb on this? Do i pull it down?

Asked by Bob June 9, 2020
2
Answers

Yes, you pull down on the trim ring and the bulb comes down with it. Then you give the bulb a little counterclockwise twist and it comes out. Installation is the reversal of the removal procedure (as they like to say in car shop manuals).

Does this come with a black outer rim?

Asked by ARH7 April 16, 2020

Answer

I have only seen them in white however they are LED lights, they do not get hot and can easily be spray painted to any color you choose.

These little LED lights are GREAT. I remodeled the basement way of my 1903 house. I removed the lath and plaster ceiling and installed 1/2" drywall. I ran new wire, and was able to cut the hole, connect the wires and pop them right up into the ceiling. Of course the ceiling in the basement way is sloped, so the ability to swivel the light to shine down the steps worked out great. The only thing I did not like was the template that is part of the package lid, made the hole a little sloppy. The second light I installed, I made the hole a little smaller and the third one even smaller, which provided a nice snug fit. Overall, they worked out great and at a GREAT price.

Perfect fit for small spaces, there are flatter/lower profiles available but this one has you in mind for later, when you have to change a bulb. The bezel face pulls away held by adjustable/bendable tabsexposing the bulb base and a super easy twist connect wiring harness. Easy to change bulb, different light brightness and spreads. Excellent product for me a DIYer/weekend warrior.

For the price of only 5$ can't really ask for a much better light. My only dislike about these are the black and white wires are like wrapped in cloth? Strange and seem cheap.

This 3 inch recessed kit with led bulb was a perfect fit for our small home remodel. We have vaulted ceilings and on some walls there is a built in high self. We wanted a way to accent these areas with some lighting and this worked nicely. Due to the way the self was constructed into the wall and vaulted ceiling, wiring a switch was a challenge but other than that install is straight forward. The box also contains a template for the hole that needs to be cut. The unit is well constructed and simple to install. No screws needed type of thing. The bulb can be adjusted to aim in a specific direction. I wish that you could select the color temperature of the bulb though. We use daylight 5000k bulbs in our home and these come with soft white 300k bulbs. Not a big deal at the moment but I am looking to replace the bulbs. Overall these are nice lights.

My application is lighting a small hallway AND adding some light into an adjacent closet. That is where the gimbeling feature comes in. Aside from the LED bulb, this recessed light looks like many other MR16 recessed light fixtures. Recall that MR16 bulbs have 2 pins that "twist" into the socket rather than having a threaded base. The simplicity of the fixture's appearance is no problem in this very small hallway. Everything you need for installation EXCEPT a 1/2 inch cable clamp is in the box. I guess a cable clamp isn't included since the manufacturer would have to supply clamps for both Romex and BX wire at a minimum and one would be wasted. One box flap has a perforated template for cutting into the ceiling drywall so don't look for one in the box. I would have preferred push-type wiring terminations but the traditional screw type wire nuts work just fine and only take another minute or two to connect securely. I didn't see a color temperature rating but it seems to be 3000K versus 2700K. Tradtional MR16 bulbs tend to be a bit cooler even when rated as soft white so I don't see that as an issue. The can itself is held to the ceiling with 2 leaf springs that tilt out from the top of the can pushing from the inside. Again, this is the same on many such fixtures featuring Non-LED bulbs in the past. See the photo of the light shining on the closet door to get an idea of beam spread. It is a bit tighter pattern than a simple flood light. So the bottom line is that I give it a strong 4 stars while reserving 5 stars for truly exceptional products or exception values.

This all metal, 3 in. Directional Recessed Light Kit with LED bulb from Commercial Electric is a great way to light up any area of your home, this light is dimmable, from 10% to 100%, has a soft white light output equal to about a 50-watt incandescent light. The GU10 bulbs are user replaceable and the housing is rated for direct contact with insulation as well as being damp rated. The light can swivel so you can aim it in the direction that looks best. Easy to install with a 3-1/4 inch hole saw to make the hole and the unit slips inside the opening and just attach the wires, pull the clips out and your done. No screws needed.

This is a high quality light fixture that includes the LED bulb. The mounting clips are strong and adjustable for different thickness mounting surfaces. It should work fine for 3/4" thick surfaces right down to paper thin. The mounting clips are as good as they get. Please see pics. NOTE!!!! Don't cut a 5" hole! This is approx. a 5" finished size with the included trim kit. I cut a hole closer to 4.5". There is an included template with the light to trace for your hole. If you're installing several, please consider buying a proper hole saw. I bought the Milwaukee adjustable hole cutter at Home Depot (49-56-0320 Milwaukee part number) and it saved a ton of time and made a more perfect cut than I ever get with keyhole saws. This is typical commercial electric quality. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this remodel fixture. Locks into the hole well. good light. And the trim ring allows a margin of error on the hole size.
