Product Overview

The H27RICAT housing is designed for remodeling use in shallow ceilings where 2 in. x 6 in. joist construction is used. The wide variety of trims available allows a number of different lighting effects to be created with one basic housing. The H27RICAT is designed for installations where the housing will be in direct contact with air permeable insulation.
  • Air-Tite rated design meets restricted air flow code requirements which prevents airflow between attic and living areas and saves on both heating and air conditioning costs
  • Has four remodel clips which secure the recessed housing and accommodates 1/2 in. and 5/8 in. ceiling material
  • Compatible with a wide variety of 6 in. recessed light trims but is best with Halo 426, 420, 353, 310, 301, 172, 78, 71, 70 and 30 series models
  • Compatible with a wide variety of 6 in. LED retrofit trims but is best with Halo quality RL, RA, SLD, LT, SMD and ML series models (Bulb free with some having a 45 year LED lifespan)
  • Listed for damp location when used with dedicated wet rated recessed ceiling lights
  • 3 "Quick Connect" connectors eliminate the need for separate wire nuts - simply strip supply wires and push in
  • Can be installed from below the ceiling in home remodel applications, ideal for those who have limited or no access to their ceiling
  • Shallow recessed can for ceilings with 2 x 6 joist construction, fits perfectly in tight spaces
  • Insulation contact rated: designed for insulated ceilings where contact is necessary
  • Rated for up to a 75-Watt maximum incandescent bulb
  • Rigid socket plate adjusts and locks without tools for various lamp sizes
  • Features an integral thermal protector to guard against misuse of insulation materials and improper lamping

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SHALLOW HOUSING BECAUSE IT IS TOO SHALLOW FOR MOUNTING A HALO LED CONVERSION RECESSED LIGHT. THE TOP OF THE LED LIGHT INTERFERES WITH THE SCREW-IN SOCKET PLUG AND DOES NOT ALLOW THE BEZEL TO REST FLUSH AGAINST THE CEILING. IT IS ABOUT 3/8 OF AN INCH SHY OF BEING DEEP ENOUGH. ALSO THE FOUR RETAINING SPRING CLIPS ARE USELESS AND I HAD TO SCREW THE HOUSING IN PLACE BEHIND THE CEILING. OBVIOUSLY THE SALESPERSON WAS NOT AWARE OF THE INTERFERENCE PROBLEM WHEN USING THIS HALO SHALLOW HOUSING WITH THE HALO BRAND LED CONVERSION LIGHTS. NOW I NEED TO CREATE SOME KIND OF A SPACER RING TO MAKE UP THE DIFFERENCE AND ALLOW THE LIGHT FLANGE TO REST ON SOMETHING SOLID.

good Buy!
I decided to buy this product to replace an old ugly fluorescent light that was in the kitchen, when I bought the house. After further inspection the fluorescent light was giving me problems over 2 years so I decided to replace it with a new fluorescent kit or recess lighting. I decided to go with recess lighting remodel, so I can place the recessed lights where I want them to produce more light at. The recessed lighting was easy to install, and you can place the lights where you want them, it makes a difference and looks great, giving off much more light. I know it was a good investment.

    Ceiling saver!!!!
    The final finish quality of installing these great, use the little template provided, I use a hand saw (keeps the dust down and Im a pro) but the 6" hole saws are great for anyone!! The only way to go!

    Perfect for LED Lights
    This review will be short and simple. After all we are only talking about a Recessed Lighting Housing fixture. Prior to buying this unit for a remodel that I am performing in my kitchen I read the reviews for the housing. The one thing that caught my attention were the complaints about the LED light not fitting far enough inside of the fixture. In slight of the negative complaints I decided to give the unit a chance. Well, as stated by others the light did not fight flush inside of the fixture. However, after examining what was causing the light not to slip completely inside of the housing I quickly arrived at a simple solution. I simply took a pair of wire pliers and bent the spring clip just below the end. That allowed me to install the light as it is intended to be installed with minimum effort. I have attached two photos. The upper unit is as it is provided by the manufacturer and the bottom unit is the modified one. I hope that this helps.

      Not compatible with Halo LED lights
      Bought these to go with halo LED which are supposed to be compatible - they are not. Light sat 1/4 to 3/8" proud of the housing so there's would be a gap to the ceiling. I returned them.
