Cheap and Weak Securing System
March 31, 2012
The actual fixture is good but the template is off. Should have made it a bit smaller because if you cut exactly on the line the fixture barely fits. The fastening clips are not low enough (5/8" drywall) so it does not secure to the ceiling tight enough. I had to buy some flat ceiling Halo fixtures at Home Depot and use the clips to secure the others. Basically I had to jimmy rig them to fit tight. Very poor securing system. The Halo brand are much better design. I would have gone to Home Depot but they didn't sell the sloped ceiling type. I will not use these in my next remodel project. I will spend a little more and shop for quality Halo.
Pros:Actual Fixture, price and speed of shipping
Cons:The securing clips and WRONG size template. Shipping package not packed good, so damaged rims.
