How to fix a pot light coming out of the ceiling

I was trying to remove the trip when I guess I accidentally pulled the whole housing out of the ceiling. I can remove the release clamps onthe side (not sure if this is the right term) and pull the entire unit out (ie. not fixed to the ceiling). The clamps look like springs. Basically, I think the releasing clamps should be holding the housing unit up but it won't. Any ideas of how to fix this?

actually this unit only has 2 silver spring clamps that look like those springs in clothes pins (except longer). there's nothing inthe ceiling. this unit comes entirely out and the based on the unit there are two heavy cables (ie. metal surrounds the wires) attached. that's why im trying tofigure out that is holding this too the ceiling...i think it's just the metal spring clamps.
