recessed lighting clips
 
I am replacing recessed lighting but the housing is right next to two beams so the clips on two sides can not lock. Any suggestions?

I honestly do not understand.

housing is too close to a floor joist to get the clip to engage; I'd throw a screw into the joist through the clip slot IMO.

That is exactly what I do.

Sometimes you can rotate the housings so the clips will fit.
