Default Recessed Light Brand

I do a lot of recessed lights. Many old work. I always propose LED trims as part of the quote because I can usually get them for close to $10 a piece, they are quicker to install and they kind of give it an upscale pitch when I am selling to my customer. Some trim prices are always low and others come and go as National Grid frequently subsidizes the LED trim prices to get people to save electricity.

My preferred brand of recessed lights is Juno. Mostly because it is what I am used to, but also because I hate the clips that Halo uses and I have not used many other brands.

The one challenge I am having though is getting inexpensive LED trims that fit the Juno 4 inch recess lights properly. They are so shallow that most of the LED trims do not have enough clearance.

What brands of 4 inch recess lights are others using, what should I try?

Thanks in advance!

I use Nora because that is what my supply house uses. I never had a problem getting LED trims into the 4" models.

I use elite, I get them at Rexel. I'm in CT but I believe they have locations in mass. They take the Cree LED retrofits that I use and I'd say most others. They are pretty deep.

Im not shock, but its a similar looking clip to Halo. The thing is it clips in easier and has a locking tab that holds it in. I switched over to the Juno economy can from Halo and regular Juno cans awhile ago.
Hate using Halo cans now.
