Beware of a cheap unit--as you are finding--accessories are limited.

Often the cheap fixtures are far more difficult to install that a high quality unit.

Sometimes you can save a dime and waste a dollar----just a thought.

In my experience, half the time remodel cans will not pull up tight to sheetrock ceiling with the flimsy little clips meant to secure the can.

At $10 a can, you don't have a quality product.

You may be right. But 161 reviews on Amazon with avg 4.7/5.0, probably will work out okay. We'll see.

I highly doubt you are getting a UL listed IC rated can for that price.

Just remember, you get what you pay for.
