HD Cree LED 6" bulbs don't fit Halo remodel cans

djmarbMay 10, 2013

Uggg! So I was told at Home Depot that the Cree 6" LED recessed bulbs would fit into the Halo 6" remodel cans. Unfortunately they're too deep/tall for the cans. Now my cans are installed and I don't know what to use instead of the Cree's. Any thoughts?

Also looking for a solution for a spot that can only hold a recessed light that is 4.5" deep or more shallow.

The bummer about the built in baffels is that if one light changes and you can't get the same baffel, they all look different.

Thanks for any tips!

What was the published can depth?

Did you remove the plate to which the socket is normally attached to?
