Thanks, did I get the wrong box? Do they make plastic ceiling boxes that don't need that thing?

Along with the clamp, the gap around the box needs to be patched to no more than 1/8 inch.

I can tell by the mounting bracket in the box that he is installing one of those Commercial Electric LED disk lights.

One of those would look real snappy with that big a gap.

k_buz, you are the WINNER! I got these lights from Polar-Ray so they are not Commercial Electric brand but I believe they are the same light.

The light completely covers the hole so no trim ring needed. Or, is the hole supposed to be patched before the light is attached?
