Halo Cans - No warranty with CR6 (Big Deal?)

toddimtAugust 9, 2011

I was at HD yesterday and looked at the Halo H7ICAT cans for my project. I was going to use these air tight cans since they are the typical can standard and I then would be covered if I was unhappy with the LED Cree lights and could use other options.

I noticed stamped on the box that that the warranty will be voided if used with non-halo trims, their own Prod LED retrofit kit as well as other brands.

Not that these can's really go bad to worry about a warranty issue but the only issue could be the thermal protection device built into the can. I see these cans are listed as compatible with the LR6 so don't see why they wouldn't be compatible with a CR6. So is there any big deal with using these cans? I g=figure its just that Halo/cooper lighting doesn't want to be involved in calls/issues if another light was used. Or am I better off looking at another can that would give me options?

That warranty void stamp is there for two reasons.

1) They want you to buy their own trims
2) They can't possibly test all trims out there and verify saftey/compatibility, so they CYA.

Sorry, can't give you any specifics on CR6.

Shouldn't be a big deal at all. As you said, what can really go wrong with a can? And the CR6 shouldn't cause any problems in that can.
