Securely lock each clip by tapping it with a hammer and slotted screwdriver.Repeat to connect and install the remaining recessed-light housings. From above the ceiling, find the existing electrical cable that comes from the wall switch and connect it to the new cable strung between the recessed lights.Secure each wire connection with twist-on connectors.
Make the wire connections inside a new metal junction box.
Be sure to attach the box cover after making the wire connections. Install the light fixture into the recessed housing by first connecting the fixture's ground wire to the grounding wing nut inside the housing. Screw the remodel recessed lighting fixture into the socket located inside the housing, then press the fixture into the housing until it clicks into place. Turn on the electricity and flip on the light switch to check your work.
Once that’s done you should see some little spring clips that are holding the casing in place.
Just pull them out and the light casing should come right off.
Hi all, I ordered a pack of these from Amazon in hopes of upgrading and retrofitting the existing recessed lighting in my hallway: just tried removing the trim on the existing lighting but I noticed as I was trying to twist it, the *entire* unit moved (along with the Edison screw base is).
Is this actually a fully integrated can where the trim is part of it and can't be removed?
EDIT: upon closer inspection, it seems there's an "inner-can" that houses the light bulb itself and there are a couple metal tabs that you can pull in-wards and then lower or raise this "inner-can" (I guess for variable lighting)?
I'm scared to move the inner-can up high in fear of losing it to the larger can/trim.
So many people – really, SO MANY, more than I ever would have thought – have come into my house when the lights are on and have looked around and said, “Did you paint? ” It’s made more of a difference in the light than I even hoped it would.
And the way the LEDs blend in with the ceiling has taken years off the look of our house.
Now look at how the new LED lights almost vanish into the ceiling.
