Where to get this lighting fixture?


My ceiling-mounted light fixture above the bathtub seems beat up. See photo.

I want to get the same kind of fixture (with the ring around it) to replace it. Where can I get it?

I think that is a standard 6" can light and optional covered trim ring--

If so--you just need to go to the home Depot and look at the trim rings in the recessed lighting section---(LED trim rings are available for less than $25--)

Can you pull down the trim ring and see if I am right?

I'll need to get a ladder before I can take down the trim ring. Will keep you posted on that.

I don't see any screws on the side of the light fixture or the ring. How can I take the trim ring off?

It is held up with two springy things---get your fingernails onto the ring and gently pull down---it should come down about 1 1/2"---to remove it--squeeze the wire springy things together---

Be careful not to drop the glass cover into the tub---a throw rug or towels in the tub are a good idea in case it falls.

It looks like a Halo 172PS.
Assuming it is, you will not find it everywhere. It tends to be a special order item at the big boxes.

What do you mean by "big boxes"? Can you give some examples?

While that exact cover might not be easy to find---there are many stock 'trim rings' what will work---there are mew ones that have LED lights built into the trim ring---

I like them--the LED lights look good and are supposed to last for many years.

Without additional information, I would recommend sticking with a shower rated trim, whether it is LED or incandescent.

Not all LED trims or modules are shower rated.

It should have been a shower rated trim ring, it will have a seal around the rim.
The diffusor looks discolored, may be because of to high a wattage bulb.

An electrician took it down. It's Progress Lighting, model # P8007-60. I've ordered from Home Depot. Only available via online order.

An electrician pulled down the ring and the fixture. He had to separate the ring from the fixture in order to get the manufacturer and model # on the inside of the fixture. It's a 6" Progress Lighting P8007-60 ceiling light.

The light bulb inside, believe it or not, is a 100 watts standard (traditional) soft white light bulb.

It's a Progress Lighting P8007-60 ceiling shower light. It has a 100 watts traditional soft white light bulb inside, which may have caused the discoloration.

When replacing the old fixture, I'll probably use a 60 watts soft white light bulb to avoid discoloration.

Would an energy-efficient bulb equivalent to 60 watts be better for the fixture?

Do you mean trim ring by "trim"?

An electrician took out the fixture and the ring, and got the information. A 100 watts old-fashioned soft white light bulb is inside.

The fixture comes with the trim ring. It's at http://www.homedepot.com/p/Progress-...Q&gclsrc=aw.ds
