Installing recessed light trim


Sorry to revive this old thread, but I had the same question but need additional clarification. I am installing 6" Juno airtight remodeling cans with Air-Loc baffeled trim. If I understand the previous posts, I remove the screws in the cans that support the socket plate and snap it on to the trim and only use the torsion springs to secure the lamp and trim? The height-adjusting screws remain out, correct?

Thanks!

As you seem to have figured out, the socket mounting plate isn't used with the Air-Loc trim. There is one screw holding the socket to the plate. Remove and discard this screw, then twist the socket out of the plate. To make room for this trim, you have to push the plate up into the can past the stops - that is, higher than the normal high position. The plate is attached to the can with two wing nuts. Loosen the wing nuts, free the tabs on the plate from the stops, then push the plate up into the can and retighten the nuts (or remove them if you prefer). Once the plate is out of the way, you can snap the socket into the top of the trim and push the trim into the can.

I got home and tried out your method which worked perfectly. I then re-read the Juno-supplied instructions which did show how to push the plate up past the stops. I generally pride my ability to read and understand documentation but I blew it the first round on the Juno sheet. I'm humbled and bit embarrassed at the same time. I thank you again for the clarification.
