Help! How to get Halo trims flush and tight
Hello Goose134 and J.V.,
Thanks very much for your quick answers, i will try both of those techniques.
Goose, i had given that some thought to try previously, glad to hear you has some luck with that, i will give it a try.
J.V., i see that collar that you are speaking of, and i will try to drop them a bit. The challenge i see though is that if that collar lip does not catch the drywall, wont i have the same lifting problem then no matter where the collar sits vertically? I was trying to think of a way whereby i could drop the collar and then put something under the lip of the collar that would catch the drywall so that when i push the trim back up the box doesnt want to lift. The other idea i had was maybe go back up in the attic and put a couple pieces of thin metal strap across the boxes and screwed into the adjacent joists, almost like a seat belt. Mind you, the play is only 1/8 of an inch probably at most, but if those trims sit 1/8 down from the ceiling it looks pretty bad.
Thanks again to both of you.
