Can these be used in a shower - WET application?

Asked by: Cocoa

The clips on my 5inch halo recess light fixture will not hold on the ceiling what can i do to make them work

Asked by: Buster1
Once the clips have been rotated into position, they then needs to be shifted up towards the top of the fixture (about 3/8") in order to lock them into place. This can be done with a flat bladed screw driver, pushing the clip outward and upward. The clip should easily slide up into the locked position.

Is this unit dimmable? The specifications sheet doesn't mention this.

Is this unit dimmable? The specifications sheet doesn't mention this.
Asked by: Jon
The unit does not dictate if the inserted light bulb can be dimmed. That capability is dependent on the type of bulb used.

I bought one of these and there appears to be nothing to hold the light socket inside the can. The 2nd picture doesn't appear to show anything either. Is there supposed to be another round bracket included,? Something that slides and tightens down with a wingnut?
Asked by: Steve
The light socket is held by the wingnut on the side of the inside of the can. Attach the metal bracket off the socket. The wingnut allows for height adjustment of the bulb.

H5 5 in. Aluminum Recessed Lighting Remodel Ceiling Insulation Contact Air-Tite Housing (6-Pack) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spring clips difficult to use The clips that halo uses to secure the fixtures only work when everything is perfect with the hole and the drywall etc. I found the remodel ic recessed light from dmf lighting is much better and easier to use. I gave up on halo and only use dmf now for remodel recessed light fixtures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very happy, just read the instructions To be fair to the reviewer who said not to use this product, the instructions are not the best, but read them carefully and read them over a few times, and then you'll understand what they mean. I couldn’t figure out how to work the retaining clips for about a half hour, and then it clicked. Once I figured it out they're very secure and not going anywhere. Wiring is also VERY easy, I made it hard for myself - again, read the instructions. I cut off the plugs to connect the wires direct to my house wiring, rather than inserting the wire into the plug for an easy connection as the instructions said to do. As for trim rings – not sure where the other reviewer bought this product, but when I bought it it was not in a box, just loose, and it was quite obvious that I was going to need a trim ring to support the light in the housing. I don’t believe any housings come w/ trim rings, none that I’m aware of. All in all, I’m very pleased w/ the light housings and will absolutely use them again in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Housing...after you figure out how to install the clips. These are good quality can lights but it took me about five cans before I really figured out how to easily install the clips. You don't need to bend the clips or the housing and there is nothing wrong with the design. The problem lies in the fact that the lower portion of the clip (t-section) has to slide down between the housing and the drywall to properly (easily) lock in place. If you use a 5 1/2" hole saw to make a precision cut, when the housing is pushed up into the hole, there is no space for the t-section of the clip to slide, and this is the reason that it won't snap in place. The easiest way to remedy this is to push the housing up into the hole and get it where you want it, then take a small 90 degree pick and scratch out some of the drywall near the bottom of the housing where the clips go. It doesn't have to be a lot just enough for the clip to slide down. If you do this, the clips will snap down easily and then you can take a flat blade screwdriver and just slide the clip up locking it in place. Also you can buy some #14-3/4" screws to secure the clip to the housing. This makes the installation very secure and I did this as well. I will caution you that the clip has to be slid up in the housing before driving the screw in though. You can't just use the screw to lock the clip down if it keeps popping up. The screw will not hold if you try to drive it into the t-secion of the housing. I found that I damaged quite a bit of the foam when installing these, so I bought some aluminum tape, like you use on sheet metal duct work and put a piece over each clip to make the housing more air tight. You can also use this tape to seal up other areas of the housing. If you get the clips installed correctly, you may not need to bother with the screws as this will be fairly secure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Difficult & Frustrating I have installed a lot of IC cans in the past and have never experienced the problems that I have experienced with these cans. I read the reviews before I bought the can and assumed that perhaps it could have been due to inexperience even though cans from other manufacturers do not seem to have negative comments regarding the clips. With some hesitation I purchased 1 can and gave it a try and had absolutely no problems so I bought a pro pack case of 6 and had a problem with every single can in the case. 3 cans were eventually installed, 3 were destroyed along with some of the drywall on my ceiling that now needs to be repaired. I believe the clips were a little too long or had the wrong angle and as you push it in it hits the drywall and does not spread out like it should. I really believe there must have been a bad lot, although a very large one, of these cans since no way could they all be like this and the product still in the marketplace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installing as easy as 123 Read all negative comments about the clips. Be patient people, nothing comes easy. I just installed 14 of them. They look great. You just have to figure out how the clips work and next thing you know you'll be on a roll. Try this. Place a flat head screw driver on the gray tape on clip and tap inwards with the palm of your hand or a hammer, then gently hit the clip upward and it will lock in. The trick is pushing the clip inwards and then upwards. Do one clip on one side and then one the opposite side first. then finish the rest. You also want to make sure there is not debris on the other side of the sheet rock as this may prevent the clip from locking into place properly. Do Not hit the clip upward too hard or you will tear right thru it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very difficcult to install Just finished installing 7 of these in my kitchen. The clips are almost impossible to install. My son pushed the clips from the bottom while I went into the attic to help pull them out from above. The clips need a redesign to make them easier to install. Finished product looks good, but we are exhausted from the effort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great fixtures; poorly designed clips I've installed about 10 of these so far in a variety of rooms and have about 10 more waiting to go in. I wanted to chime in with what others are saying -- these are awesome, extremely easy to use fixtures, at a good price, that have surprisingly poorly-designed drywall clips. Through trial-and-error I've found a really simple workaround to the drywall clips: If you simply bend the living heck out of clips - I mean REALLY flex them - before they go in, they install wonderfully and are secure as can be. I've found one pair of needlenose pliers does the trick and I can do it standing on a ladder. Why they didn't put this step in the instructions or design the clips to a better angle I'll never know. Everything else: flawless. It's very quick and easy to hook electrical up to these, fit into existing drywall, fit a bulb into them and so on. I've got these hooked up to EcoSmart 5/6 in. LED bulbs and Lutron LED dimmers and everything is flawless. I've found that's an extremely rare statement to make about dimmable LEDs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You must be smarter than the clips The clips are little bit of a pain if you don't understand how they work. You need to push a flat head screw driver though the insulating tape so that it catches on the small tab under it . Then you need to hit the screw driver with a hammer so as to push the clip out (flush with the wall of the can) and then upward so the clip slides up the slot to lock in place. My dad, who's been a electrician for over 35 years and who has installed hundreds of Halo can was totally frustrated. I'm an engineer though and figured it with a little trial and error.
