Default LED fireplace lights ( to replace eyeballs)

I need a wafer eyeball light! I know, dumb idea. Customer has no attic just 2x6 ceiling joist. I dont want to use a can and eyeball trim because they will have almost no insulation above the can. I was hoping for something shallow in LED. Can you help me out?

They are available but the center has about a 1” rise. It wouldn’t work if there was a joist anywhere near the center.

I don’t remember the manufacturer but one of our supply houses has them in stock (meaning they are available).

Yes, i think a gimball would work. I couldn't find many companies that offer them.

I would cut the joist out of the way. 1" isn't going to matter.

Another vote for the lotus led though as others said, they are much deeper than a wafer led. Nothing in led replacement trims that looks good?

Lithonia makes a clamp on gimbal too. Never tried it, though.
