Austin Mention "The packaging further indicates not to use this housing with any LED retrofit kits except those made by the manufacturer." I am planning to use COSTCO LED lights kit. Is this means I cannot use them??

How many can be installed on one circiut?

Asked by: Mike
I'm not an electrician but I believe it depends on how many watts are being used by each one. I used LED lights which only pull about 9 watts each. From what I have read, on a 20 amp circuit you have 2400 watts so it really depends on what else you have on that circuit.

No. I don’t think so. You need 10” space for it.

Customer Reviews

6 in. Aluminum Recessed IC Remodel Housing (6-Pack) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 257.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recessed light product This was my first recessed lighting project and it went so smoothly that I am planning out a few more rooms. The cans are great quality, easy to work with, and stay flush with the ceiling. I really like that there is room in the can for the electrical cable connections, and having a push module for the wires is great as well. Definitely a great product especially for the price. I used LED lights with these on a dimmer switch and everything is working perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great They installed easily once the holes were cut. The clips snapped into place and hold them solidly. The wire connectors in the boxes are really handy. I am not sure what the other reviewer did to not have them hold, but I miswired one box and found it almost impossible to pull the wire back out. A much better hold than a wire nut. It does not have the orange connectors for the led retrofit lights, but they all [retrofit led's] come with the Edison screw base adapter that works fine. The brackets for the wire clips on the retrofit lights work fine also. These worked great for providing light directly over the counter on our kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good design, just as good as the pricey ones. I am glad to see that they put in the PUSH IN wire connectors. You don't even need wire nuts anymore. I just put up a video of me installing it if you are curious to see how it is done. I cant complain about this it works perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive can that works! As an electrician, I've used these on side jobs and in my own home. You can't really beat the price and they do the same thing any other more expensive can does. Installed properly it sits flush with the ceiling, you may have to remove the bottom part of the clips if you're hole is cut tight but it's easy to remove and insert once the can is in the hole. Most recently used these with the LED screw in bulbs with a plan white baffle trim in a seven figure house and they came out great. Anyone complaining about these cans must have installed wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love how easy it is to install these fixtures. just upon opening the box the packaging is done perfectly. The quality of each fixture is terrific and they are very easy to install. I use them on every job and even in my own home.

I had never installed recessed lighting before but I was remodeling a bedroom and decided to update the lighting. These canisters were so easy to install and greatly improved the lighting in the room. Although I had access to the attic above, I never needed to get up there to install these fixtures. The wire connectors on these fixtures make it really quick and easy to connect them. The only problem now is my wife wants me to change out the lighting throughout the house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish I've had several of these units fail while finishing out installation. When inserting the bulb, the socket ring cracked and shattered causing the bulb to fall out of the socket. This is not something that can be repaired and required the replacement of the whole unit. A handful of the housings were out of round, which made fitting them through the hole a bit difficult. The J-box on it is actually pretty nice. I didn't like how rigid the arm supporting it was. For a reno unit, you'd hope to have a little more play so you can address the work you're tying into.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light Socket Screw (E26) Rivet Sometimes Breaks Spec.say the bulb size is PAR 30 (3 3/4 " dia). When I use an Ecosmart ECO-FD6, sometimes the light socket breaks free of the rivet that secures the screw socket to the ceramic base. When this happens the light no longer can be turned on. I believe the reason is the Ecosmart ECO-FD6 bulb assembly is over two times the torque of an ordinary BR or PAR 30 bulb. The diameter of the Ecosmart ECO-FD6 is 7 3/8 " vs. 3 3/4 " for a PAR 30 (about 2 times the torque). The Ecosmart light fixture has to be flush to the ceiling surface, so the tenancy is to try to screw in the Ecosmart ECO-FD6 more than the screw socket rivet can handle. So far I broken 2 sockets out of 16.
