Can light trim for porch


Am putting 6" can light fixtures on porch. Would "shower" trim rings with solid glass covers work?

You can use any trim rated for a damp location.

Be aware, some shower trims I've seen have the glass held in by pins. You have to lift & turn them to get them out, and because the glass is 'a little loose' the wind in a porch may cause them to rattle some.

I personally would just use an open baffle trim.

Same here! A shower trim will limit you to max 40 watt bulb.
