Commercial Electric Pot Lights in Insulated Basement Ceiling
I am installed Commercial Electric Pot Lights from the Home Depot into my basement ceiling. I am insulating the ceiling - so they need to be installed into a ceiling box. I am confirmed with a few different sales associates that I have purchased the right parts - but what they can't tell me is how to make the fixture fit into the ceiling box in order for it to be low enough to attach the lighting gimble.
If I just push the clips into place - they pull the lighting fixture all the way in flush with the box - which is too high to attach the gimble to.
I am sure it is just something I am not doing correctly - but since I have 15 to do - I want to make sure this looks decent.
