Did you remove some sort of trim with the bulb? My can lights are those type of free floating fixtures. You have to have specialty trims that have clips built into them to hold them in the recessed lighting.

I'll find out how annoying it is in the future when I want to change the trims.

not sure?

My electrician installed the cans and he didn't remove anything.

Got a URL of these specialty trims that I need for recessed lighting?

Thanks for the reply,

Do you still have the packaging the light came in?
It should tell you what type of housing will go with cans.

Your electrician should have pointed out that you would need that trim while doing the install.

Sorry I didn't necessarily mean specialty, but a specific type. Those use trims with spring clips in them. The light fixture locks into the trim itself. I have Juno fixtures which use trims like these. Like everyone else said you will need the brand and then it should be easy to find the correct trims.
