Product Details

The HLB8 is a 8 in. ultra-thin LED lens downlight with remote driver/junction box suitable for new construction and remodel applications. Field selectable color temperature and high color rendering provide excellent color performance. Simplified installation in drywall or suspended ceilings eliminates recessed cans saving time and money. Installs from below the ceiling in as little as 3-1/2 in. plenum height, can be used in direct contact with insulation and is airtight. Use for general area lighting in low to medium height ceilings where energy savings, long life and economy are required.

Q:There is a question answered here that says these lights are not compatible on circuits protected by arc fault breakers. Can you clarify why that is? Pretty much every area in the house is required to be AFCI protected now.

        Bright but popping noise
        As others have said these make a loud popping noise when turning on and turning off they install easily enough and the light is very bright, but the popping noise is very annoying and I wish I had purchased another brand. It’s not the wiring it’s the lighting element and the housing unit making the noise when it heats up and cools down. Ranch home with attic above with insulation and a gap for these so it shouldn’t happen. Bad product design.

          Installed 25 of these in my basement using Halo frames. Installation was easy. No junction box was necessary since a junction box comes with the lights. Works well with a Lutron dimmer.

          This light is fantastic
          I love this light. Canless, LED, super slim, quick connect wiring, and I can even install it directly under a joist. Plus it looks great and it has selectable color temp. Its perfect for adding or relocating light in any room.

            Nice light, but emits popping sound
            The good: they’re very thin and easily fit flush with 1/2” drywall even with a ceiling joist over the hole. They install super quickly and easily, work perfectly with dimmers, etc. The bad: the trim ring on these lights is very small. They also make a loud “pop” when turned on or off, or when the room temp. changes. It happens even with the lights powered off, so it’s not an electrical issue but related to temperature. I ended up replacing them with a different brand that doesn’t pop.

              Easy Install
              I found these to be easy to install in a Hardie Plank patio ceiling. Drilling the holes was a bit messy. At first I tried to use the screw on handles for mounting, but those screws pop out too easily. That is the reason for 4 stars. I gave up on the mounting wings and used the two internal holes instead and that worked fine. Be careful when removing them, the spring loaded tabs will snap your fingers once they clear the hole. They provide a lot of light and good clearance for a low ceiling patio.

              Awesome lights
              These are awesome lights. Very well-made much better than the other garbage that they sell. You can select different light temperatures. You can have a traditional amber looking incandescent lock or you can switch it all the way up to a very bright white 5000 K hospital operating room color.

              Easy to install and quite bright
              Lights are super easy to install. Very bright and being able to choose the color temperature is great. You do have to choose the color before you put them in the ceiling.

              These are great! Very easy to install and love the option to change the light temp. These were recommended by an interior design blogger ChrisLovesJulia and they did not disappoint. We installed new lights in the living room and the. Went back for more to replace older can lights in the kitchen.

                Disappointed in lighting.
                Easy to install, however the Commercial Electric model from HD is much brighter. Both are the same lumes. I removed this and repaced with a Commerial Electric model.

                  Fantastic light fixture for small room
                  Fantastic for a small room such as a laundry room or a utility room. The compact feature makes a great. Within the box you get the light fixture and the junction box which can be connected to any existing wiring. If you’re not comfortable with electricity please make sure to reach out to a licensed electrician. Overall great product. I love the clamps that allow you to drill a hole and not worry about electrical boxes. The fixture comes with 5 different lighting options which is great if you have a lot of other light bulbs and just want to add this small fixture.
