I would recommend this item to a friend.

Work & look great. Watch the install.
March 5, 2011
I purchased 7 of these for a couple closets in our home. They look great and work well providing plenty of light...installed Lutron dimmer switches. Only caveat is getting the light to look like the pictured one here, the socket in the housing (ic 4-inch version for us) needs to be unscrewed from the inside wall of the housing and allowed to dangle. With socket dangling you press the light bulb (already inserted in socket) into the gimbal...NOTE the gimbal has 2 clips protruding on the inside portion of it....these clips anchor the bulb flush at the base of the gimbal and you get exactly what is pictured here.

Questions & Answers

Are these fixtures IC rated?

By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 2, 2012


These trims can be used with IC housings or with remodel housings.
By RJ Maillie Jr from West Chester, PA on November 2, 2012

You would need to look at the housing, not the trim, for an IC rating. Trims are interchangeable with IC and non-IC rated housings.

The housing should say outright that it is suitable for contact with insulation (IC rating), but if not, you can usually tell by looking at it. The fixture itself would be boxed as opposed to being exposed.

Can I use this trim kit with a Halo H99ICAT housing ?

By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on August 7, 2012


We strongly recommend using this trim with a housing from the same manufacturer (see accessories tab for compatible housings).

There are a few reasons for this. First of all, mixing manufacturers will generally void the warranty and UL listing for both trim & housing. Also, it is not certain that the trim will fit perfectly in a housing from a different manufacturer.

Could I used a PAR20 LED bulb with this fixture?

Can I use this outside as a light over my garage?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 26, 2014

It's suitable for use in damp locations. It can be installed outdoors as long as it's protected from direct water spray, e.g. rain.
By William from Houston, TX on November 26, 2014

This is designed to insert into a 4" recessed light fixture. If you have that over your garage, it will work. If you are talking about some outdoor wall mount fixture, I would say no.

By Nabil from Washington, DC on October 5, 2012
Hello, I am thinking of using this Trim on a sloped ceiling that is 20 Feet high. Is the light sufficient from that height? I considered an MR16 trim but have been told from such a height the lighting will not be sufficient?! Thanks

By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 8, 2012


For a ceiling that is 20ft high, I would recommend using a housing & trim that uses a higher wattage lamp than this.

Also, make sure your housing & trim are designed for sloped ceilings.

I would recommend this trim because it can use up to a 90W PAR38 halogen - a very bright light bulb.

By Joe from Alabama on July 21, 2014
How do you change the bulb in this fixture?
By Burt from California on July 22, 2014

Very simple.
You just pull the flange down and the bulb holder is then accessible.

By Hanae from Minneapolis, MN on January 17, 2014
Can I use Toshiba 8.6-Watt Dimmable LED PAR20 Light Bulb, Narrow Flood on this 4" line voltage recessed lighting trim?

By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on January 17, 2014

Yes, you can use the LED light bulb with the trim.
